Decontamination and Management of Contaminated Hair following a CBRN or HazMat Incident
Matar, H., Pinhal, A., and Amer, N., et al. (2019). Decontamination and Management of Contaminated Hair following a CBRN or HazMat Incident. Toxicological Sciences. 171(1): 269-279.
The authors conducted an in vitro porcine study on skin and hair to determine the most effective strategies for post-chemical decontamination. They examined dry decontamination, the ladder pipe system, and technical decontamination and determined that while these methods worked well on skin, they were less effective on hair, leading them to recommend removing contaminated hair post exposure.
