Abstract

Bioterrorism as a national threat poses enormous challenges to emergency department staff and emergency medical services personnel, and requires thoughtful planning and preparations. Several issues are special or unique in contemplating this threat as it applies to pediatric victims and the pediatric emergency medicine community. This report reviews some of the general principles of medical preparedness for bioterrorism, focuses on management issues for several of the most feared threats, such as bioweapon threats, and attempts to highlight pediatric issues as applicable.
