Abstract

Critical care providers and facilities should be prepared for the treatment and care of large amounts of casualties in the event of vesicant use. The basic principles for the management of vesicant exposure are containment, prevention of secondary contamination, rapid decontamination, and implementation of symptomatic and supportive care. The ability of care providers to recognize, respond, and appropriately treat chemical casualties will help minimize adverse outcomes.
