Abstract : This is the second in a series of annual reviews on the extension of the casualty estimation methodology described in Allied Medical Publication 8 (C): NATO Planning Guide for the Estimation of CBRN Casualties in 2010 (AMedP-8(C)). While the 2009 report focused on prioritizing additional agents to be modeled, this review describes the manner in which medical countermeasures would be incorporated into AMedP-8(C) models for agents of various types and considers the level of effort required to do so. It focuses on those agents included or proposed for inclusion in the Common User Database, a collection of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) treatment protocols and estimated personnel and materiel requirements developed and maintained by the Defense Medical Standardization Board.
