This Revised Third Edition is now updated to reflect the 2005 emergency cardiac care guidelines. The need for hazardous materials emergency response has grown with the increased use of chemicals and the threat of terrorism. Designed for both the EMS field provider and first receivers in the hospital setting, this important resource provides field recognition and management guidelines for hazardous materials exposures and associated medical emergencies, including emergency care of exposed and contaminated patients. The 3rd edition has been expanded to provide responders with the information necessary to identify the scene of a terrorist act involving the use of hazardous materials, as well as triage procedures for chemical exposure and the management of a mass casualty incident.
