Welcome to the Show

Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses. I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. First up, in this week’s nursing news items, we’ll look at how telemedicine is reducing risk of the spread of ebola from patients transported here to the U.S.

Then in this week’s special tip segment we will take a look at the recent enterovirus D-68 outbreak. 30 states and counting are seeing this rapidly spreading respiratory infection. What can we expect to see in these patients? We’ll find out later in this episode after the news.

Tip of the Week – Enterovirus D-68 Overview

Unwell-Child-Oxygen-MaskEnterovirus D68 (EV-D68) is one of many non-polio enteroviruses. This virus was first identified in California in 1962, but it has not been commonly reported in the United States. Now that is changing. Since late summer this year, it has been linked to hospitalized patients around the country. Because reporting is not mandated, many cases are unconfirmed to be EV-D68.

The CDC reports from mid-August to late September 2014, a total of 213 people in 30 states have been confirmed to have respiratory illness caused by EV-D68. Let’s take a look at this virus in this week’s tip segment and see if we can get a handle on what we might expect to see in one of these patients.
