Ambulatory Care Evaluation of Patients with Possible Ebola Virus Disease (Ebola)

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email

The majority of febrile patients in ambulatory settings do not have Ebola Virus Disease (Ebola), and the risk posed by Ebola patients with early, limited symptoms is lower than that from a patient hospitalized with severe disease. Nevertheless, because early Ebola symptoms are similar to those seen with other febrile illnesses, triage and evaluation processes should consider and systematically assess patients for the possibility of Ebola. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released a new algorithim/flow chart to provide guidance for ambulatory care settings.
