Item description for Forensic Aspects Of Chemical And Biological Terrorism by Cyril H. Wecht...

Since the attacks of September 11, 2001, the US has become more aware of its vulnerability to terrorist attacks. Every day our media reports on the possibility of an attack on our soil or an attack on our overseas citizens or military personnel. As terrorist become more determined to cause chaos, the possibility of them using chemical or biological weapons increases. An attack of this nature in any county would pose a great danger to the entire world.

History shows us how easily deadly viruses spread through populations because of travel, unrecognized symptoms, and unorganized healthcare. In today's world, people are able to travel greater distances in a short time. In only a few hours a disease could be spread to multiple continents. In addition, technological advancements have made it easier for terrorist to produce and release chemical weapons that could be used in public areas. Therefore, in order to prevent attacks, or contain the spread of disease or chemical exposure if an attack happens, the response must be quick, organized and thorough.

Forensic Aspects of Biological and Chemical Terrorism is an eye-opening resource for healthcare professionals, 911 operators, emergency response personnel, medical examiners, coroners, hospital administrators and public health officials. It provides valuable insight into what areas need improvement, what roles each of the responders should have, and how this all can be accomplished. It also extensively covers the investigation of an attack from the signs and symptoms of various diseases and chemical exposure to how the crime scene should be handled. This timely resource is a must have for anyone involved in public health and public safety.

Identification of biological and chemical terrorism
Injury characteristics and treatment
