Product Description & Reviews
5 star review for the series from Foreword Reviews: In the wake of September 11, 2001, bioterrorism has become a term with widespread use, though the history of biowarfare dates back to the fourteenth century. Little was then known about how germs caused disease; the stench of corpses was thought to spread infection, so dead animals and plague-infested corpses were catapulted over castle walls as a means of attack. Bioterrorism and biowarfare have come a long way since then, though the idea is still the same: To immobilize the enemy through disease, whether it be plague or smallpox or viruses that cause hemorrhaging. The modern use of biowarfare agents such as anthrax began with World War I and continues on into the present day. The UniversityOfHealthCare's Bioterrorism Certificate Program sets out to identify the major agents of bioterrorism, including anthrax, botulinum, and tularemia.

Identifying seven major types of bioterrorism in all, in this thorough manual and CD, each type is then examined in detail. Information is provided about the organism itself, how it is transmitted and how it can be prevented, how it can be diagnosed, and how and why it could be used in bioterrorism. For instance, anthrax is a bioterror threat because it is often fatal in small doses, is odorless and invisible, is easily available, and can travel hundreds of miles before losing potency. The manual here is provided as a quick reference to important points, while the CD includes graphics, audio, and video that greatly enhance the learning experience, along with offering periodic quiz questions that allow users to test their knowledge. The CD also invites the user go further by taking a graded exam at the end of the section on each disease. If users pass the exam, they will be taken to a
