The workshop, "Triage of Irradiated Personnel," sponsored by the U.S. Army Office of the Surgeon General, was conducted at the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI) on September 25-27, 1996. This workshop focused on a reassessment of the radiation medicine section of Chapter 4, Medical Aspects of Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Warfare, of Army Field Manual 8-10-7: Health Service Support in a Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Environment. Sixty-five speakers and guests from the United States, Germany, Netherlands, Canada, United Kingdom, and France addressed the three issues: (1) operational effectiveness of exposed personnel with and without other injuries who receive medical care in Army echelon I and echelon II medical facilities, (2) operational effectiveness of personnel with multiple exposures (assuming a previous total dose of <1.5 Gy), and (3) methods for estimating exposure in personnel who receive antiemetics before or shortly after exposure.
