Although this book focuses on military field and out-of-hospital care (prehospital care) and on police SWAT team medical issues, fire department medics will find it especially helpful. Among the topics covered are: ballistic casualties, blast or burn injuries, NBC casualties (nuclear, biological, chemical - one chapter for each), safe and appropriate medical assistance during a law enforcement tactical situation, and chemical agent protection. As evidenced by the chemical attack in the Japanese subway system, the Murrah building bombing, and other acts of terrorism worldwide, municipal and volunteer fire agencies must improve their readiness to deliver medical care during hostile situations. Conveys ideas without getting bogged down with heavy-duty medical terminology. Many practical ideas on how to keep everyone alive in hostile circumstances.
