Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eric C. Strong, Associate in Fire Science(University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This reference book provides information on both the identification of hazardous materials (haz-mats) and the treatment of victims who have suffered exposure to them. It contains plenty of boldfaced subtitles to guide the reader.
Purpose: It is intended to provide a foundation of emergency treatment protocols based on clinical experience and research in the area of hazardous materials exposure.
Audience: The intended audience are practitioners who are responsible for the emergency care of victims of hazardous materials exposure. This includes firefighters, paramedics, and haz-mat teams to whom falls the responsibility for the prehospital care of persons who have suffered injurious or life-threatening exposure to hazardous materials. The book is also written for the emergency room care provider.
Features: The book is organized into six sections: (1) indexes that include a DOT Hazard Class Sheet with illustrations of the 1994 DOT placards and labels for hazardous materials; (2) generic guidelines indexed to the DOT Hazard Classes for haz-mats to be used when exact chemical identification cannot be made, and specific guidelines that give information for identification and treatment of exposure to the chemicals listed in an accompanying index; (3) treatment protocols; (4) drug protocols; (5) operating procedures for EMS/HAZ-MAT response personnel; and (6) references.
Assessment: This book contains very useful and current information for anyone charged with the responsibility of prehospital and emergency room care for patients that have suffered hazardous materials exposure. The information contained in the treatment protocols and the operating procedures for EMS/HAZ-MAT response personnel provide sound information that could be used by medical and public safety professionals in developing their own standard operating procedures.
