Today’s episode is another installment of the EM Basic Project. Dr. Sheyna Gifford and Dr. Chrisanna Mink will talk about measles. This is a disease that we thought we had stamped out long ago with vaccination but the rise of the anti-vaccine movement has caused several small outbreaks so we need to be ready and on the lookout. They will discuss how to recgonize measles, how to order the right testing and treatment, how to properly disposition these patients and the importance of getting your public health colleagues involved.
