More About the Book from the Borden Institute:

Fort Sam Houston, TX, February 15, 2013 – As technology advances, so too does weaponry. Given modern threats of radiological and nuclear terrorism, and in light of recent natural disasters that have resulted in catastrophes such as occurred at the Japanese Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, The Surgeon General of the US Army saw fit to revise and update a previous Textbook of Military Medicine on the medical management of radiological and nuclear casualties.

In Medical Consequences of Radiological and Nuclear Weapons, newly released by the Borden Institute, subject-matter experts detail the medical management aspects providers must consider when faced with large-scale radiological or nuclear events.

According to The US Army Surgeon General, Lieutenant General Patricia D. Horoho:

“Weapons of mass destruction and natural disasters pose potential threats to our military forces and their families. Military medicine must be prepared to sustain the force in any environment and ensure they meet the challenges presented by the chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) threat.”

This textbook, which includes chapters such as Triage and Treatment of Radiation and Combined-Injury Mass Casualties, Therapy for Bacterial Infections Following Ionizing Radiation Injury, Early-Phase Biological Dosimetry, and Psychological Issues in a Radiological or Nuclear Attack, is intended to provide military and civilian medical providers and planners with the tools they need to successfully react to a radiological or nuclear event.
