types of health care professionals that treats Ebola hemorrhagic fever

1.Types of Healthcare Professionals that treats Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever.

Ebola contaminations can spread rapidly to others, patients can easily infect health care workers,the CDC and other agencies recommend that only highly trained personnel treat Ebola patients.The treatment involves high-level barrier ability to protect all health care experts.Unfortunately,these trained individual detect with Ebola in the U.S should be treated in specific delegate medical care centers and medical care monitored by the CDC.

Types of specialists who may treat Ebola victims are:

  • Emergency medicine experts
  • Contagious sickness specialists
  • Critical care physician
  • Pulmonologists
  • hematologists

2 .What is the contagious period for the Ebola virus.

For those patients who survive infection,they may remain contagious for about 21-42 days after symptoms.However healthcare professional can remove the viruses from semen,breast milk,spinal column and ocular fluids.It is unclear,according to the CDC,if these fluids can transmit viruses,although the CDC suggest that Ebola can be spread by semen and suggest male survivors of the disease abstain from sex or use of a condom for all sexual activity

3.Medical treatment for Ebola hemorrhagic fever.

According to the CDC and others,standard treatment for Ebola hemorrhagic fever is still finite to supportive psychotherapy is balancing the patient’s fluid and electrolytes,maintain their oxygen status and hyperpiesia,and treating such patients for any complicating infections.Any patients suspected of having Ebola hemorrhagic fever should be isolated.Currently,there is no specific medical treatment for Ebola hemorrhagic fever to according to the CDC.The CDC recommends the following medical treatment for Ebola-infected patients:

  • Providing Endovenous fluids [iv] and  balancing electrolytes
  • Maintaining oxygen status and essential hypertension
  • Treating other infections if they transpire

Health care professional transport victims diagnosed with Ebola in the US to special hospital certified to cure Ebola patients.The special hospital were certified because of the problems experienced in a Texas hospital where the first patient in the US was diagnosed with Ebola and subsequently spread the sickness to hospital workers.Experimental formedia treatments of Ebola contamination includes immune serum,antiviral drugs approved by the CDC to treat Ebola contamination.

Hi Perpetual, 

To begin with, your research is very detailed, and I can see that you put a lot of hard work into it. Good work on dividing it into three major different sections. Today, Ebola has disappeared from the headlines, however, it continues to be an unpredictable and devastating opponent that needs human and financial resources. I found it intriguing how you mentioned that what happened to the health care professionals in a Texas hospital where a patient was diagnosed with Ebola and had subsequently spread it to them. You did a great job on describing the contagious period of the sickness. A concept that I suggest you may want to develop into is how this disease had spread at such a rapid rate. You may want to look into the different organizations and countries that supported the treatment for Ebola during the outbreak in 2014 and what they did. As a result, I suggest you to also delve into the steps we can take to prevent there being another large outbreak of any virus.

I can’t wait to see your next post, 


Hiya @Perpetual Mugambi (SWEETWATERS)!

Really nice post! I am glad to learn more about this. Interestingly enough, after the big fuss over on the media, it has long since died out. I was under the impression that it was over but apparently it is not. I still see it being actively watched out in hospitals- just less frantic about it. 

Just like Alison said, really nice research work here! It was clear and super easy to understand and read! 

My suggestion is somewhat similar but in the direction of compare and contrast! Taking a look at what Canada vs Kenya and similar-differences between to help this crisis. For Canada related information here:

Hi Perpetual!

Great organized research.  This is something that was a really big issue a couple years ago, but like Jim said, didn't realize it was still a big problem.  Obviously you cant just get rid of a disease but since we haven't heard anything about it over here, i was naive enough to believe something had actually been fixed. 

I was never actually really taught what the Ebola virus is and this helped me understand a lot more about it!

This probably seems like a really obvious route to go with your research but i do think looking at the advances they have made in finding a cure would be an interesting thing to look into.

Hi Perpetual!

Interesting read! I remember reading about ebola a couple years ago when there was the outbreak. Our science class would research about it, so reading your post made me remember all the important aspects I had learned about ebola. 

Ebola is still a very highly contagious disease amongst us, and difficult to cope with. For your next rounds of research, perhaps you could discuss the latest discoveries about the disease and what people are trying to do about it. 

Here's some sources that might help you: 



Great job
