Abstract
This chapter summarizes general considerations for respiratory and ventilation protection against airborne weapons of mass destruction (WMD), including protection from chemical, biological, and radiological (CBR) agents. Concerns for dispersion of toxic industrial materials (TIMs) by terrorists are also discussed. Information from a number of important guidance documents on respiratory and ventilation protection is excerpted and summarized in a companion chapter (Hoover and Cember 2004).
