In this video we demonstrate the steps involved when doffing Biological PPE for Ebola patient care as used by the Nebraska Biocontainment Patient Care Unit.

This video focuses on the use of a Suit and PAPR as Personal Protective Equipment.

The doffing process is a step-by-step process that ensures good infection control and safety.

All steps should be done systematically and in the correct order.

A doffing partner should assure all equipment is properly applied.
