‘Ebola Prediction Score’ Could Help Screen Patients For Proper Diagnosis, Treatment

Washington Post: An Ebola doctor’s answer to the life-or-death question of who should be admitted for treatment
“… ‘The Ebola Prediction Score,’ published Friday in the Annals of Emergency Medicine, is the first proposal for such a system developed according to empirical data from an Ebola outbreak. Based on data from the 395 patients admitted during the first 16 weeks of the Bong ETU’s operations, the score [is] as good as the existing World Health Organization algorithm at figuring out who might have Ebola, and even better at figuring out who might not…” (Kaplan, 4/6).
