How real is the threat of terrorism? What the surgeons need to know

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Terrorism from firearms, blast, and NBC weapons constitute a current threat in our civilian society. Awareness of the various agents used and their antidotes becomes imperative for trauma surgeons. Nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons could cause significant cross-contamination to health care personnel. Protective clothing, decontamination and specific antidotes must be part of any disaster medical plan.
