Tuberculosis - Respiratory Protection program provides an overview and a clear understanding of how to establish a respiratory protection program. For much of the 20th century, tuberculosis was a major public health concern. TB sanatoriums could be found in many major cities and a generation of researchers worked to eradicate this highly contagious, highly debilitating, and potentially fatal disease. Their efforts paid off. Effective drug interventions were developed and the medical community gained a valuable insight into the mechanics of TB infection and transmission. The number of TB cases in the US began to decline at a rapid pace. With good reason, many believed that the war against tuberculosis was over, won at last. But more recently, the incidents of TB actually showed an increase reversing this decade-long trend.
