A new field of medicine has emerged as a result of the global proliferation of terrorism. Terror medicine is related to emergency and disaster medicine but focuses on the constellation of medical issues uniquely related to terrorist attacks. The field encompasses four broad areas: preparedness, incident management, mechanisms of injuries and responses, and psychological consequences. In Essentials of Terror Medicine, these core concerns are addressed by a distinguished international authorship brought together by the three editors of this volume, who themselves are recognized experts in relevant disciplines: Shmuel Shapira, epidemiology and hospital administration; Jeffrey Hammond, trauma surgery and emergency response; Leonard Cole, bioterrorism and public policy. Essentials of Terror Medicine provides insightful and practical information for physicians, nurses, emergency responders, and other health professionals who may be called to service during or after a terror incident. It is indispensable reading for the medical community of the 21st century, in which diligence, continued education, and careful preparation for a variety of possible events are a preeminent responsibility.

Review:

From the reviews:

"An international group of authors present the basics of terror medicine. ... Practitioners and trainees in emergency medicine, surgery, anesthesiology, and other specialties treating trauma are an appropriate audience for this work ... . Administrators with responsibility for acute care programs may also benefit from this background material. ... I recommend this resource for practitioners and hospitals serving in the acute care safety net." (David J. Dries, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2009)

“The latest single source reference to address the multitude of issues that arise in our fairly elementary experience in disaster preparedness and response related to terrorist acts. ... The challenge for readers ... is the applicability of the lessons from countries where terrorism is a daily concern to a country in which even the memories of September 11 have dimmed. ... Essentials of Terror Medicine does a nice job of consolidating and distilling important and practical information ... with a truly qualified list of contributors.” (David V. Shatz, The Journal of TRAUMA, Vol. 67 (6), December, 2009)
