Tuberculosis (02:38)


Tuberculosis is a widespread disease, affecting 10 million people in 2019. U.S. response to a TB increase in the 1980s has led to a steep decline. The CDC created infection control guidelines to ensure another outbreak does not happen.

Administrative Controls (04:56)

TB infection control contains three levels. Administrative control activities include risk assessment, determining necessary controls, and creating a written TB program. Diagnostic tools include a TB skin test and chest x-rays; learn about diagnosing HIV patients. Prescribe appropriate medications.

Environmental Controls (04:30)

Environmental controls help reduce the risk of TB in confined settings. Examples include removing contaminated air, cough etiquette, local exhaust ventilation, and ultraviolet germicidal irradiation.

Respiratory Protection Controls (03:17)

Healthcare workers should wear a respirator when entering the room of a patient with a known or suspected TB infection and undergo periodic fit testing. Administrators should implement a respiratory protection program.
