Ebola and Aerosol Generating Procedures

DropletNucleiTransferYes. And now if you get Ebola, CDC guidelines say to avoid aerosol generating procedures.


Ie: no intubation, Iv’s, dialysis, suctioning of the airway, etc. Couple that with unprepared/hesitant/untrained/fearful staff, a lack of protective gear that would coax medical personnel to perform such procedures, and a large influx of these patients to any one site, and you could be left to lie there in agony and excrement without necessary procedures.
