About this Item

Various paginations (approximately 420 pages). Illustrations (some in color). Glossary of Terms and Acronyms. Index., Back cover creased. A request for confirmation that the distribution limitation is no longer applicable is pending. The purpose of this battlebook is to address operational health concerns in environments where Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) threat exist. Potential CBRN threats range from weapons of mass destruction to contamination of the battlefield by hazardous material. Medical personnel, in conjunction with chemical personnel, must be able to advise commanders on a wide range of issues including the health effects of CBRN threats, protective clothing and measures, and management of CBRN casualties. This manual is not an emergency book or treatment guide. It is intended to provide a quick reference for decision making as to whether to request expert consultation in a given area. This work is designed for the AMEDD Soldiers in the field or training for the field. Chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defense (CBRN defense or CBRNE defense) is protective measures taken in situations in which chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear warfare (including terrorism) hazards may be present. CBRN defense consists of CBRN passive protection, contamination avoidance and CBRN mitigation. A CBRN incident differs from a hazardous material incident in both scope (i.e., CBRN can be a mass casualty situation) and intent. CBRN incidents are responded to under the assumption that they are intentional and malicious; evidence preservation and perpetrator apprehension are of greater concern than with HAZMAT incidents.
