Treatment of Ebola

As there is no known cure for the Ebola virus (although several are being tested but unavailable for clinical use), the National Institutes of Health estimates that the Ebola fever is fatal in as many as 90 percent of all infected patients (NIH, 2011). The virus attacks by infecting the liver, destroying the lining of blood vessels, and causing blood clotting problems and loss of blood. When death occurs, as it usually does, hypovolemic shock due to loss of blood is most often the immediate cause.

Treatment measures: Due to the lack of a cure, the treatments usually given to those stricken with the virus are those which are able to ease the symptoms and not treat the disease. Oxygen therapy, intravenous fluids, blood transfusions, medications for the treatment of shock as well as pain medications are commonly given to the infected.
