Ebola Doctor Reveals How Infected Americans Were Cured – Dina Fine Maron

What we found in general is that among our Ebola patients, because of the amount of fluid they lost through diarrhea and vomiting, they had a lot of electrolyte abnormalities. And so replacing that with standard fluids [used in hospital settings] without monitoring will not do a very good job of replacing things like sodium and potassium. In both of our patients we found those levels to be very low. One of the messages we will be sending back to our colleagues is even if you don’t have the equipment to measure these levels, do be aware this is occurring when patients are having a lot of body fluid loss.

    As EVB now become a menace and a highly infectious decease that is killing us daily in Africa, probably you help spread the interview of Sahara Reporters among those concerned with healthcare in Nigeria.

    Since the main mineral loss in the body are mineral salts of sodium and potassium together with reduced amount of protein in the liver, I feel that if artificially-produced salts and protein are infused into patients in correct amounts, we may be able to reduce the death toll in Nigeria cum other parts of Africa.

    All hands must be on deck. God helps us. Hope you have a nice weekend.

      Dear Fatai,

      This is really a very good suggestion and goes further to show your commitment to Nigeria and, generally, Africa’s well-being in all areas. I think it’s being already circulated among our readers judging from the stats but that can hardly touch the tip of the iceberg you have in mind which is why I’ve put your personal mail here because you are not one to be shown the comments box.

      I will send it to Professor Adegoke Falade of the University College Hospital, Ibadan so that he can get it on one of the medical bulletins.

      Sincere thanks & rgds,
