Physiological agent includ?
(1) Nerve agents (anticholinesterase)
(2) Blister agents (vesicants)
(3) Lung-damaging agents (choking agents)
(4) Blood agents (cyanogens)
Military Use agents are clasiffied into two gruops and they are?
(1) Toxic chemical agents produce serious injury or death.
(2) Incapacitating agents produce temporary physical or mental effects, or both.
This agent inhibit the cholinesterase enzymesthat disrupts the normal transmission of nerve impulses.
Nerve agents (anticholinesterase)
Tabun (GA), Sarin (GB), Soman (GD), GF, and Vagent (VX) are all classifed as?
Nerve agents (anticholinesterase)
These agents produce pain and injury to the eyes, reddening and blistering of the skin, and when inhaled, damage to the mucous membranes and respiratory tract.
