"Ready RN: Handbook for Disaster Nursing and Emergency Preparedness" is a color-coded, rapid-reference text intended for use during a mass-casualty event. After a brief overview of the nature of disasters, levels of response, and government agencies involved in disaster response, the text addresses each category of disaster: natural, public health, infectious disease, chemical, biological, radiological/nuclear, and explosive. The fourth section addresses personal protection, triage, and decontamination methods. A section devoted to clinical management covers burn management, victim assessment, on-scene management, psychological considerations, disaster settings, mass immunization, and legal implications.
