Description

Bioterrorism has become a common household term ever since anthrax was spread across a wide reach of the nation last fall. Now, it almost appears everyone is involved in serious anti-terrorism campaigns which are not as readily seen as flags attached to cars, homes and clothing.
In the event of another bioterrorist attack, will you as a caregiver be prepared?
RTs and Nurses are in the first line of defense in combating biohazard substances because inhalation is the major pathways for toxic and biological agents to infect humans. The airway is one of the primary routes infectious agents follow to enter the body, and the harm caused by the agent would impact the respiratory system first, so RTs and Nurses need to be alert.
Tom Johnson, MS, RRT, program director of respiratory care and professor at Long Island University in New York, was an officer during the Vietnam era. He trained military personnel about chemical warfare. Thirty years later, he teaches RTs and Nurses about bioterrorism and how they need to be prepared in the event of a biological disaster.
Johnson urges all RTs and Nurses to recognize potential bioterrorist agents. "During the Gulf War, biowarfare became an issue, and I realized I was ignorant and did not know anthrax was already weaponized." Bioterrorism is not a new idea. "We have had the threat of bioterrorism for a long time in history," he said.
Today's need is different. Caregivers need to be prepared and knowledgeable in bioterrorism in order to treat patients in the best manner possible.
