Transcript of Ebola
Joint and muscle aches
Lack of appetite
Based on Alfred's symptoms, Dr. Bailey comes to the conclusion he has influenza A, or more commonly known as the flu.
Alfred is brought into the S.G.H Emergency room.
Alfred is a 42-year-old male who lives in the city of Seattle, Washington. One of his hobbies is Motorcycling Club with his friends. Although he comes off as being a tough biker, he really enjoys helping other people. His biker friends like to smoke and drink, but Alferd tries to limit himself as much as he can. He is a fairly healthy guy and gets regular check-ups. His Doctor has told him that he is slightly overweight and should start exercising more.
April 1, 2014
Alfred visits his doctor, Dr. Bailey, at Seattle Grace Hospital.
April 8, 2014
This time, he's much worse.
A trauma nurse excesses Alfred first.
Fever (higher than last time)
Joint and muscle aches
Lack of appetite
His symptoms still include:
rash on legs (bleeding)
possible internal bleeding
Dr. Bailey is rushed to the emergency room. She has her suspicions to what this might be, so she orders the following diagnostic tests:
enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)
polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
complete blood count (CBC)
A common laboratory technique which is used to measure the concentration of an analyte (usually antibodies or antigens) in the solution. This test can be used to determine if you have antibodies that are related to certain infectious conditions.
laboratory technique (polymerase chain reaction) that amplifies the viral genetic material to a level that can be detected.
measures of the concentration of white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets in the blood.
Alfred's ELISA results
Alfred's PCR Results
Since Alfred loves to help people so much, he talked all his biker friends into taking a trip to Africa to build homes for orphan children.
Emergency room nurses or trauma nurses provide the initial assessment, diagnosis and care for incoming patients at emergency care facilities.
An emergency room nurse is a certified nurse who has received specialized training in emergency, trauma and life care support. To become a certified emergency room nurse, you must earn an associate's or a bachelor's degree in nursing from an accredited nursing program.
Emergency room nurses earn between $20.40-$38.65 an hour.
Surgeons operate on patients to treat injuries, such as broken bones; diseases, such as cancerous tumors; and deformities, such as cleft palates.
4 years of undergraduate school, 4 years of medical school, and, depending on their specialty, 3 to 8 years in internship and residency programs.
Surgeons practicing in medical specialties received total median annual compensation of $396,233.
March 15, 2014
The test results confirmed Dr. Bailey's Diagnose.
Alfred has been contaminated with the disease,
Ebola hemorrhagic fever (Ebola HF)
Ebola HF is caused by infection with a virus of the family Filoviridae, genus Ebolavirus.
Ebola virus lives in animal hosts, and humans can contract the virus from infected animals. After the initial transmission, the virus can spread from person to person through contact with body fluids or contaminated needles.
No drug has been approved to treat Ebola virus. People diagnosed with Ebola can receive supportive care and treatment for complications. But there is no found cure. Scientists are coming closer to developing vaccines for this deadly disease.
One reason Ebola is so deadly is that they interfere with the immune system's ability to mount a defense. But scientists don't understand why some people recover from Ebola and others don't.
What body system does it affect?
low white blood cell count
low platelet count
elevated liver enzymes
April 9, 2014
Alfred dies from multiple organ failure.
