Optimized Supportive Care for Ebola Virus Disease

World Health Organization WHO, (2019)


Clinical management standard operating procedures. Ebola virus disease (EVD) is a life-threatening multisystem illness associated with fever and gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms that frequently leads to hypovolaemia, metabolic acidosis, hypoglycaemia, and multi-organ failure. The prolonged 2013–2016 EVD outbreak in West Africa allowed for an evolution of care such that by outbreak end many patients received individualized and optimized supportive care (oSoC), including volume resuscitation, symptom control, laboratory and bedside monitoring of glucose, electrolyte levels and organ dysfunction, as well as rapid detection and treatment of co-infections, potentially contributing to the downward trend in the case fatality rate (CFR). This guidance should serve as a foundation for oSoC that should be followed to ensure both the best possible chance for survival and allow for reliable comparison of investigational therapeutic interventions as part of a randomized controlled trial. This guideline provides recommendations for the management of adults and children.

Ebola: Clinical management of Ebola virus disease

World Health Organization (WHO), (2018)


This comprehensive intermediate level course is for clinicians caring for patients with suspected or confirmed Ebola virus disease (EVD). Modules provide information on screening and triage, infection prevention and control, laboratory diagnostics, organization of the Ebola Treatment Centre (ETC), clinical care of patients in the ETC, and investigational therapeutic agents. Learning objectives: By the end of this training course, participants should be able to: describe screening of patients to identify suspect cases and safely transfer them for ongoing care to an ETC; understand infection prevention and control strategies: standard and contract precautions and use of personal protective equipment for various contexts; understand safe waste management and how to perform a safe and dignified burial; understand how to collect patient samples for Ebola and other laboratory tests; understand the various Ebola tests available and the importance of other routine laboratory tests for patient management; understand the structure, functioning, and procedures of an ETC; understand the main components of clinical management of patients with EVD; and describe the WHO framework for using investigational therapeutic agents in an outbreak.
