Stephen C. Redd, MD, Rear Admiral and Assistant Surgeon General, United States Public Health Service & Director, reviews three past pandemics - 1918, 1939, and 2009 - and describes the unique sense of uncertainty on American society during each period, as well as the unique policy decisions that had to be made in each circumstance. He asserts that improved diagnostic testing capabilities, new vaccines, and new supportive technologies, such as improved respiratory support, are our best defense in combating new pandemics.
