This case series details our experience with seven patients with pandemic (H1N1) 2009 influenza from an intensive care unit in India. All the patients had respiratory failure requiring ventilation except one; two patients developed pneumothorax. Of the seven patients, two died (28.5%) and five recovered. Four patients had co-morbid conditions and one was morbidly obese; all the five patients were discharged alive.
