List of Needed/Wanted/Available Additional Pages

  • Epidemiology
    • Geography
    • Transmission
    • Incubation period
    • Infectious period
  • Clinical Features
    • Symptoms
    • Initial presentation
    • Clinical course
    • Complications
  • Evaluation
    • Diagnosis
    • Laboratory
    • Imaging

^Diagnostics should be organized based on the area where patients are being seen, i.e. urgent clinic, emergency department. floor, ICU.

  • Management
    • Disposition criteria
    • Outpatient treatment
    • Inpatient treatment
    • Proning
    • Airway

    • Telehealth ("outpatient observation" approach)
    • Prehospital (ET-3 model, "treat onsite" approach)
    • Environmental factors (rural, urban, humanitarian disasters/conflict zones)
    • Resource scarcity (PPE, pumps, ventilators, etc.)

^Triage, testing strategies, and IPC will need to have different modes depending on the outbreak profile, i.e. containment (isolated cases), suppression (cluster cases), mitigation (sustained or widespread)

  • "X Department"
    • Platform for posting interesting cases, new research, etc.

Additional possible

  • Flow/Discharges
  • Non-Emergency Physicians in the Emergency Department
  • Homeless Issues
  • Airway
  • Environmental Services/Cleaning Protocols
  • Triage/Fast Track Tents
  • PPEs
