Important Information from World Health Organisation 

As of 27 August 2014, the cumulative number of Ebola cases in the affected countries stands at more than 3000, with over 1400 deaths, making this the largest Ebola outbreak ever recorded, despite significant gaps in reporting in some intense transmission areas. An unprecedented number of health care workers have also been infected and died due to this outbreak. WHO has been receiving questions related to medical equipment and  devices and infection prevention guidance for Ebola virus disease and we would like to share with you  the links that contains technical information on the infection prevention and control and clinical management.
Information in French: http://www.who.int/csr/resources/publications/ebola/fr/
Information in English: http://www.who.int/csr/resources/publications/ebola/en/

As you are aware , the Ebola virus disease (EVD) is transmitted by direct contact with the blood, body fluids and tissues of infected animals or people. Severely ill patients require intensive supportive care. During an outbreak, those at higher risk of infection are health workers, family members and others in close contact with sick people and deceased patients. The infection can be controlled through the use of recommended protective measures in clinics and hospitals, at community gatherings, or at home.
Appropriate donations of the required material is very important. WHO has donation guidelines available http://www.who.int/medical_devices/management_use/manage_donations/en/
Early next week (September) WHO will post the list of medical devices, some of them with technical specifications for donations/ procurement/ use, linked to the WHO guidelines.  We are working on these lists now and these lists will be continuously updated.

Any specific requests or information , please send mail to medicaldevices@who.int

  • Image Interpretation: position statement agreed by the ISRRT Council June 2014

    Image Interpretation: position statement agreed by the ISRRT Council June 2014

    “The ISRRT affirms that image interpretation is within the scope of practice of radiographers and radiological technologists, subject to their demonstration of appropriate educational preparation leading to clinical competency to carry out the task as trained and where image interpretation is permissible by regulation or law.

    Furthermore, the ISRRT Board promotes the image interpretation role of radiographers and radiological technologists in the delivery of safe, cost-effective and high quality diagnostic imaging services.”
