Summary
"In a terrorist attack, rapid response is critical. This hands-on resource, written by leading international experts, prepares your emergency medical teams to act with confidence in a large-scale emergency. In-depth coverage describes specific agents and threats, emphasizes rapid diagnosis of exposure, and details effective interventions - including prevention of secondary contamination of health care workers." "Chemical, biologic, toxicologic, nuclear, and explosive threats are each addressed using a systematic format that includes background, triage, decontamination, signs and symptoms, and medical management. The second half of the book covers preparedness - including issues specific to hospitals, communities, emergency medical services, and the media."--BOOK JACKET
