    The skin is the first line of defense against chemical warfare agents including nerve agents and toxic industrial chemicals, providing a possible barrier or delay to systemic distribution. However, so About this book. Early and rapid skin decontamination is extremely important following exposure to chemical warfare agents and toxic. Decontamination is the reduction or removal of hazardous agents. Decontamination of chemical agents may be accomplished (the “gold book”; 4th ed, ). There are three levels of patient decontamination: 1. Immediate decontamination. and slow rate of diffusion of chemical warfare agents in water significantly limit the hydrolysis.

    Chemical warfare (CW) involves using the toxic properties of chemical substances as type of warfare is distinct from nuclear warfare, biological warfare and radiological warfare, which together make up CBRN, the military acronym for nuclear, biological, and chemical (warfare or weapons), all of which are considered "weapons of mass destruction" (WMDs).   Chemical Warfare Agents, Second Edition has been totally revised since the successful first edition and expanded to about three times the length, with many new chapters and much more in-depth consideration of all the topics. The chapters have been written by distinguished international experts in various aspects of chemical warfare agents and edited by an experienced team to produce .

      "Handbook of Toxicology of Chemical Warfare Agents is a comprehensive and up-to-date monograph covering in nine sections virtually everything related to the topic, from "anthrax" to "VX." The editor did an excellent job of giving a homogenous "feel" to the contributions of more than authors with varying backgrounds and points of : NOOK Book (Ebook).

Decontamination in general is defined as the removal of hazardous material from areas where it is not wanted. Decontamination is utilized to reduce the dose that worker may receive from a component or surface, to reduce the potential for airborne Chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) agents, or to reduce the disposal cost associated with the component or the material.
