  1. What are the Bio Pathogens
    • bateria
    • rickettsiae
    • viruses
    • fungi
  2. What is mostmilitary effective and the least effective and why
    • most viruses
    • it can past filters and spreads fast

    • least fungi
    • slow to spread and effects plant live
  3. Dissemination methods
    • vectors
    • communicability
    • spray generators
    • covert operations
  4. active defense
    • intelligence
    • avoidance
    • pre-emptive strike
  5. passive defence
    • Before
    • •DCA works with the XO 
    • –hygiene &sanitation

    • After
    • Decontaminate Personnel (showers)
    • •Decontaminate the Ship 
    • –HTH primary
    • –Soap & water secondary
    • •Decontaminate Food 
    • –Prepared (discard)
    • –Unopened (if possible)
    • •Decontaminate Water
    • •Quarantine Potentially Exposed Personnel
  6. Bio Spread rate
    150nm @ 10nm winds
  7. Infectious Biological Agents
    General Characteristics
    • Low agent concentrations required
    • Delayed effects
    • Pervasive
    • Difficult to detect
    • Easy to produce
    • Do not destroy material
    • Highly weather dependent
  8. CBR Bill is where
    RPM chap. 7
  9. AEROSOL:
    Finely divided particles of liquids or solids that are suspended in air, and which behave as a gas.
  10. PERCUTANEOUS:
    An agent that can enter the body through unbroken skin or injure the skin directly. (aka skin hazard)
  11. VOLATILITY:
    measure of how readily an agent evaporates
  12. COMMUNICABILITY:
    the ability of a pathogen to be transferred from one individual to another within a target population.
  13. INCUBATION PERIOD:
    the period of time required for the pathogens to establish themselves in the body of the host and to produce disease symptoms.
  14. PERSISTENCY:
    The ability of infectious agents to live and remain a hazard in the environment. (how long the agent can stay and still hurt people)
  15. PERVASIVENESS:
    The ability of infectious agents to permeate (penetrate) and remain present throughout an area or a population due to their small size.
  16. QUARANTINE:
    The separation of a potentially exposed group in order to limit the area exposure of an infectious agent.
  17. VIRULENCE:
    The relative ability of infectious agents to produce disease. (The more viral, the more deadly because there will be shorter incubation time and more pervasive.)
