Abstract
This contract examines one aspect of the management of mixed casualties...specifically the management of surgical patients who require both a general anaesthetic (GA) and who: 01)-have received prophylatic treatment (pyridostigmine) for anticipated exposure to chemical weapons (CW). Or 02)-have been exposed to CW. Or 03)-have received current antidote post-CW exposure. Or 04)-have received combinations of the above. It is the aim of this study: 01)-to identify potential adverse drug interactions with anesthetic drugs currently in the Canadian Forces (CF) formulary; 02)-to suggest suitable anaesthetic management regimens; and 03)-to highlight areas requiring further critical examination.
