Would you recognize the signs of a biological or chemical weapon attack?Would you know how to diagnose and treat your patients? Would you know how to protect your staff and yourself in doing so?

For answers to questions like these in a matter of minutes, turn to this book: the first specifically designed to lead you through identification of the most likely biological or chemical weapons used in a bioterrorist attack.

Through an easily accessible cross-referencing chart, you will be able to look up suspicious symptoms presented by unexpected clusters of patients, and then quickly find detailed descriptions of the most likely causes. The book lists and describes 43 biological and chemical weapons in detail, including clinical and laboratory identification, treatment, and personal precautions.

  • The first published text to include chemical warfare identification and treatment
