Changes in T wave and ST elevation (Malik et al., 2005); tachycardia and ST elevation (Havens et al., 2012) in human ehrlichiosis

This project may hopefully become a model for future studies on the efficacy of prevention methods for tick-borne diseases in the U.S., such as Lyme disease, human babesiosis, human anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, human ehrlichiosis
, tick-borne relapsing fever, Powassan encephalitis, and Colorado tick fever.

However, there is not yet any data about human ehrlichiosis
* MDHHS conducted a review of available data on tick burden in the state and reviewed the clinical and public health surveillance data for physician-reported human ehrlichiosis
and anaplasmosis during 2000-2008.
