Abstract
Emmy award winner Loretta Swit hosts a training video to educate health care employees about proper respiratory protection against TB exposure. Three percent of all tuberculosis cases occur in health care employees. Respiratory protection is a key measure for preventing the risk of occupational exposure, and training is important for the proper selection and use of respirators.
