The C-TECC Guidelines Committee has published the TECC CBRN Annex titled Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) Guidelines for BLS/ALS Medical Provider: Response to Chemical Warfare Agents/Events. This annex serves to augment the TECC guidelines by addressing treatment required to patients during a CBRN event. Primarily focused on illness and injury sustained through the use of chemical agents, this document aims to provide guidance to medical providers rendering treatment during the three phases of care. Additionally, guidance and treatment recommendations are provided for patients exposed to Pharmaceutical Based Agents (PBA's), having been identified by civilian and counter-terrorism experts as a threat. The large quantities and rise in availability of synthetic opiates pose a significant risk of deliberate release during dynamic acts of violence.
