Acting on the Lessons of SARS What Remains To Be Done
Toner, E. and Nuzzo, J. (2011). Acting on the Lessons of SARS: What Remains To Be Done? (First page only.) Biosecurity and Bioterrorism: Biodefense Strategy, Practice, and Science. 9 (2).
The authors share the lessons learned from the SARS outbreak, including how hospitals "amplified" the disease by performing specific procedures (e.g., endotracheal intubation and airway suctioning) that can aerosolize respiratory droplets. The authors then highlight successes (e.g., the use of "respiratory etiquette") that have come about as a result of implementing the lessons learned.
