NATO - AMEDP-7(D)
CONCEPT OF OPERATIONSOF MEDICAL SUPPORT INCHEMICAL, BIOLOGICAL, RADIOLOGICAL, AND NUCLEAR ENVIRONMENTS
|Publication Date:||1 December 2007|
AMedP-7 is intended to be used in conjunction with supporting Allied Joint Doctrine, STANAG 2451 (AJP-3.8), Allied Joint Doctrine for NBC Defence and STANAG 2228 (AJP-4.10), Allied Joint Medical Support Doctrine. The coordination of medical capabilities is detailed in STANAG 2437 (AJP-01), Allied Joint Doctrine. AJP-3.8 provides chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear defense doctrine for the planning, execution, and support of joint operations by establishing fundamental principles for the guidance of operational level commanders and their staffs in a CBRN environment. AJP- 4.10 provides medical support doctrine for NATO multinational joint operations and essential material for medical planning staffs. In addition, STANAG 2437 (AJP-01), Allied Joint Doctrine, provides capstone doctrine for the planning, execution, and support of Allied joint operations.
AMedP-7 is also intended to be used in conjunction with other Allied CBRN medical doctrine including Allied Medical Publication 6 (AMedP-6), NATO Handbook on Medical Aspects of NBC Defensive Operations, and Allied Medical Publication 8 (AMedP-8), Medical Planning Guide for the Estimation of NBC Battle Casualties. AMedP-6 describes treatment and other medical support requirements for patients suffering from CBRN related illness and injury. AMedP-8 provides planners with estimates of CBRN casualties resulting from CBRN attacks against Allied forces. AMedP-8 also provides measures of unit degradation over time. AMedP-7 links these two documents by describing CBRN roles, responsibilities, and medical capabilities to directly support the planning function. The collaborative application of NATO STANAGs and publications such as AMedP-6, AMedP-7, and AMedP-8 promotes the interoperability of the medical components of the force.
