Clinical management of patients with viral haemorrhagic fever: A pocket guide for front-line health workers

Author: WHO
Year: 2016
Resource type: Field tool

This pocket guide provides strong support for the practical application of key lifesaving interventions that are feasible in an ETU as well as interventions that relieve pain and other symptoms. Providing good supportive care while in personal protective equipment VI (PPE), which limits the time for patient care and can impair vision and dexterity, is a challenge. Practical approaches to improving the volume of fluids administered are discussed using ORS, IV and intraosseous (IO) fluids.

This pocket guide seeks to provide clear guidance on current best practices for VHF, including both clinical management and infection prevention and control.
