Triage Use one of the variations of simple triage and rapid treatment (START) or other mass casualty systems until the specific agent vapor has been identified. Patient Management Segregate and isolate casualties based on level of exposure: direct contact, aerosol exposure only, or no obvious exposure. Provide general supportive care until the agent vapor has been identified. Periodically reassess casualties for potential presentation of latent symptoms. 2 C02: Nerve Agents—“G” and Novichok Series TOXICOLOGY Effects Nerve agents are the most toxic of all man-made chemical warfare agents.
Personal Protective Requirements Agents pose both a severe respiratory and contact hazard. Wear appropriate fully encapsulating chemical protective gear with positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus. Structural firefighters’ protective clothing is recommended for fire situations only; it is not effective in spill situations or release events. Decontamination • Casualties or personnel—Remove all clothing immediately. To avoid further exposure of the head, neck, and face to the agent vapor, cut off potentially contaminated clothing that must be pulled over the head.
In some cases, the clinical presentation of symptoms can vary significantly. To account for these variations, each of the military groups was divided into subclasses when appropriate. There are also indices for agents that do not fit neatly into one of the classic military groupings. For information on specific agents, the first section of this book contains an alphabetical listing of many common synonyms of agents including some US military identification codes. Each synonym is cross-referenced to the appropriate class index.
