IDWeek 2014: Olası Ebola Hastalarının Hızla Tanınması ve Güvenli Biçimde Tedavisi Çok Önemli

Prompt recognition, safe management of potential Ebola patients key

October 10, 2014

Jeffrey Duchin, MD, chair of the IDSA public health committee, offers his perspective on the identification and management of Ebola virus infection.

“One thing that would be incredibly helpful for HCWs in the context of caring for Ebola patients would be to use the buddy system; that’s where one health care provider, at all times, is observing the other one for any potential breaches in [personal protective equipment] that can represent a risk of transmission; when those breaches are observed, they can be rapidly corrected before any opportunity for contamination occurs,” Duchin told Infectious Disease News.
