Medical aspects of chemical warfare( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reflecting the critical threat posed by chemical warfare and terrorism, the Borden Institute has released 'Medical Aspects of Chemical Warfare', the latest volume in the 'Textbooks of Military Medicine' series. A year after the publication of 'Medical Aspects of Biological Warfare' in December 2007, this book completes the update of Borden's 1997 'Medical Aspects of Chemical and Biological Warfare'. Since then, an increasing 'concern for the United States and its allies is that an ever-growing number of terrorist organizations will employ chemical warfare agents in an attack on military forces or civilians. As a result, efforts to prepare for such an attack have expanded and are now supported by the Department of Health and Human Services and Department of Homeland Security, as well as the Department of Defense, ' according to Major General George Weightman, Commander of the US Army Medical Research and Material Command. 'Medical Aspects of Chemical Warfare' is a comprehensive source of the information available on chemical agents, including detailed explanations of chemical detectors and protection equipment, methods of diagnosis, decontamination techniques, established and emerging countermeasures and therapy techniques, and response planning, as well as the history of chemical warfare and casualty management. This book will increase the level of preparedness and response capability of military and civilian practitioners responsible for chemical casualty care. Lieutenant General Eric B. Schoomaker, Surgeon General of the US Army, calls the text 'strongly recommended reading for all military medical personel. ... Many civilian medical professionals will also find this textbook to be a valuable reference as their hospitals prepare for the possibility of treating casualties of an accidental or deliberate exposure.' Written by a team of both military and civilian experts led by the US Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense at Aberdeen, Maryland, the book includes cutting-edge science that has emerged since the first edition to significantly expand diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. The book will provide the medical force with the latest information to help them understand and identify the chemical threat; to plan for response; to protect soldiers, the public, and responders; and to deliver the highest quality of casualty care."--The publisher

A contemporary history of the U.S. Army Nurse Corps by Mary T Sarnecky( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mary T. Sarnecky, who had first-hand knowledge about U.S. Army Nurse Corps inner workings as an active duty officer, presents her analysis documenting U.S. Army Nurse Corps from the early 1970s to the beginning of the 21st century in the Borden Institute's latest release, A Contemporary History of the U.S. Army Nurse Corps. She addresses a remarkable episode in the organization's evolution, a period characterized by a series of progressive steps empowering Nurse Corps officers to assume key command and leadership positions in Army Medical Department. "It is imperative that we review the "lessons learned" from this period in our nursing history and utilize the experiences, knowledge, and leadership of these extremely talented and dedicated professional nurses," said Gale S. Pollock, Major General (Retired), CRNA, FACHE, FAAN, 22nd Chief, U.S. Army Nurse Corps. The book explores vital roles of Army Nurse Corps in supporting and sustaining high-level military operations that began with Operation Desert Storm. Professionalism, clinical competency, adaptability, and flexibility remain the hallmark of Army Nurse Corps. In tandem with her previous work (A History of the U.S. Army Nurse Corps published in 1999), Sarnecky offers a wealth of scholarly research narrated in her straightforward style imparting a rich institutional history of which all professional nurses should be proud--Publisher's description
