Highlights from the 10.19.14 Sunday Shows

SundayShows-w-candyDr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on ABC’s “This Week

“I think this idea that every single hospital can take care of a seriously ill Ebola patient right now is just not true. So what we’re going to be doing with the CDC and the state health authorities and the hospitals themselves, we know we have four hospitals that are there now, including my own hospital, but we need to pre-train people so that if we need to surge up we can. But I think we don’t want to get people to think that any hospital, community hospital is totally equipped to care for the patient. They must be able to identify and isolate and then from there get them to a place where you have pre-trained people who know how to do it.”

Fauci on CBS’s “Face the Nation

“The guidelines that were on the CDC were WHO guidelines that worked well for many, many years in approaching patients who have Ebola in the African setting, which is in a much less well developed setting, not the tertiary care. Now when you have patients here we do things that are much more aggressive with patients — intubation, hemodialysis — so the explore level is a different, particularly because you are keeping patients alive, because you have the capability. So, those guidelines had some aspects about it that we are going to improve on. For example, the guidelines did have some exposure of skin in the sense you had a mask but there was some skin that was exposed and some hair that was exposed. That is the thing that now in our setting of tertiary care we want to make sure that that’s no longer the case, that you have essentially everything covered.” Read more

Playboy Exclusive: Former Dem Governor of Montana Brian Schweitzer on Obama, 2016

playboyIn the latest issue of Playboy, Jeff Greenfield sits down with former Democratic governor of Montana Brian Schweitzer to discuss the current political landscape, from U.S. involvement in the Middle East to a critical evaluation of President Barack Obama and a potential 2016 run for president.

On 2016 aspirations:

“Well, if I decide to run for president, my message has to be very crisp and clear—one, two, three. There’s no four, five and six; it’s one, two, three. And that message has to be what I say each time I’m asked a question. If the question is “Is the window dirty?” then I say, “Yup, and that’s why we have to create jobs for the next generation…But if I’m in a debate with four other people, well, you can’t possibly discuss all the things I’ve thought about and all the ways we can reform. But you can say, “Look, these are the three things we’re going to get done during the first year, and this is why.”
