RPM chap. 7
Finely divided particles of liquids or solids that are suspended in air, and which behave as a gas.
An agent that can enter the body through unbroken skin or injure the skin directly. (aka skin hazard)
measure of how readily an agent evaporates
the ability of a pathogen to be transferred from one individual to another within a target population.
the period of time required for the pathogens to establish themselves in the body of the host and to produce disease symptoms.
The ability of infectious agents to live and remain a hazard in the environment. (how long the agent can stay and still hurt people)
The ability of infectious agents to permeate (penetrate) and remain present throughout an area or a population due to their small size.
The separation of a potentially exposed group in order to limit the area exposure of an infectious agent.
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.)
