Bioterrorism: Guidelines for Medical and Public Health Management

by

Bioterrorism: Guidelines for Medical and Public Health Management Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bioterrorism: Guidelines for Medical and Public Health Management is the most credible and up-to-date new book on the recognition, diagnosis, and management of infections caused by agents used in bioterror weapons.

The focus of the book is on the history, epidemiology, microbiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, vaccination, therapy, and management of six deadly forms of biological warfare. These include anthrax, smallpox, plague, botulinum toxin, and tularemia. In addition, all scientific information from the recent cutaneous and inhallation anthrax outbreak will be analyzed and discussed.

Each chapter is written by experts in each biological agent, and relevant leaders in medicine, research, government agencies, military, public health, and emergency management. Includes a chapter written by Anthony Fauci, MD. Each chapter is written specifically for the clinical professional.

Synopsis:

This valuable resource also includes seminal articles describing the diagnosis and management of the victims and survivors of the first bioterrorist attack with anthrax in the United States. Also included is an article on the principles of quarantine and isolation, a useful discussion for the medical, public health, and policy communities.

Synopsis:

The only source for peer reviewed guidelines. Edited by leading experts, including Donald Henderson, MD, MPH, this valuable clinical resource is the only book that provides guidelines and recommendations for the medical and public health community following a bioterrorist attack including an article on principles of quarantine and isolation. The text addresses specific diseases and syndromes associated with a bioterrorist attack that were identified as of greatest potential threat to the civilian population, including anthrax, smallpox, plague, botulinum toxin, tularemia and hemorrhagic fever viruses.
