The authors describe the treatment of a patient who contracted Ebola (and multi-drug resistant, gram-negative sepsis) while working for the World Health Organization in Sierra Leone. The article provides a table that details the patient’s clinical variables (e.g., temperature and heart rate), fluid measurements (e.g., intravenous, diarrhea, urine), and laboratory values (e.g., hemoglobin, white cells, sodium) from days 10 through 27 of the patient’s illness.
