The Weapons of Mass Casualties and Terrorism Response Handbook provides emergency personnel with information about potential terrorist weapons. Covering chemical agents, biological agents, radiation emergencies, electronic terrorism and directed energy weapons, and personal protection and decontamination, the Handbook provides a brief history, signs and symptoms, personal protective measures, and treatment modalities for the various topics. This is a book about mass casualties, not mass destruction. Although many lump chemicals and biological weapons with nuclear weapons and conventional terrorism as weapons of mass destruction, weapons of mass casualties do not necessarily cause mass destruction as well. Instead of causing mass destruction, weapons of mass casualties cause fearsome casualties, society-paralyzing panic, and emergency situations that may overwhelm all available medical facilities and surviving providers, but these weapons may also be chosen particularly because they avoid any significant destruction of property.

With the increasing availability of biological and chemical materials, the threat of terrorism grows daily. Innocent bystanders -the major targets of terrorists because they gain the most publicity - create a vast number of potential victims. In our changing world, horrendous violence has become commonplace. The growth of incidences involving chemical and biological agents has created a need for local response teams to be aware of the dangers they face. Emergency Response to Chemical and Biological Agents serves as a training manual for emergency responders who handle incidents involving biological and chemical hazardous materials. The author covers poisons such as nerve, blood, blister, and choking gases and biological agents such as anthrax, typhus, and cholera. Using examples ripped from the headlines, he explains what is and is not a terrorist act, and the difference in handling each incident. In addition the author explains the standard operating procedures of Hazardous Materials Teams before, during, and after an incident. Whether terrorist act or chemical spill, local responders usually reach the scene first. As these incidents multiply - and they will - these teams will need a blueprint for dealing with chemical and biological materials. Emergency Response to Chemical and Biological Agents provides a clear, concise plan of action for responding to these incidents.

NOTE: NO FURTHER DISCOUNT FOR THIS PRODUCT-- OVERSTOCK SALE -- Significantly reduced list price This is a manual for healthcare providers caring for victims of chemical attacks or accidents. It will increase the level of preparedness and response capability of military and civilian practitioners responsible for chemical casualty care. It describes each type of agent in detail in the medical management for each, along with detection and decontamination techniques and equipment. Chemical, biological, and mid-spectrum agents are often referred to as weapons of mass destruction, or WMDs, and the official military definition of WMD includes these three kinds of agents, Chemical agents, biological agents, toxins, and point sources of radiation may cause mass casualties while leaving structures intact; a better term for these kinds of weapons is mass-casualty weapons, or MCWs. Unconventional weapons is a term used to refer to chemical agents, biological agents, toxins, nuclear and thermonuclear bombs, radiological dispersal devices (or RDDs, also called “dirty bombs”), and point sources of radiation used as weapons. .The list of chemical warfare agents officially designated as such by the US military includes those chemicals that are intended to cause death or serious injury and also those intended to cause incapacitation, that is, temporary inability to perform one’s military duties. The former are called toxic agents and include (1) lung-damaging agents (also called pulmonary or choking agents); (2) “blood” agents (specifically, cyanide compounds); (3) vesicants (blistering agents); and (4) nerve agents. Those designed to produce only temporary incapacitation are referred to as incapacitating agents. This handbook will address each of these groupings of “official” chemical warfare agents as well as riot-control agents, which are technically not chemical warfare agents according to the US military definition, but are widely used in law enforcement for mass incapacitation. Chemical agents may have chemical names as well as common names. Chemical agents developed for military use may also have a NATO code. The NATO code is a one- to three-letter designation assigned after World War II to provide standard recognizable shorthand identification. For example, the chemical compound O-isopropyl methylphosphonofluoridate has the common name sarin and the NATO code GB. This handbook will use NATO codes as well as common names for chemical agents.
