The CDC is continuing in its attempts to reassure health workers and the general public about Ebola. Their newest initiative is a series of video modules that provide visual demonstrations for health workers on how to safely and properly don and doff personal protective equipment (PPE.) The videos include options for the two main types of PPE: the N95 respirator or the personal air purifying respirators (PAPR.) On the general side, the University of Nebraska Medical Center has released comprehensive information on Ebola geared toward the non-medical professional. Dubbed, “the Nebraska Ebola Method,” the guide includes several useful resources for workers including traveling advisories, coping with Ebola-related stress and legal authorities for quarantine.
