Introduction:

In December 2015, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published a report titled “Clinical Framework and Medical Countermeasure Use During an Anthrax Mass-Casualty Incident,” which provided guidance on crisis standards of care for large-scale anthrax incidents. This report follows the 2014 CDC anthrax treatment and prevention guidelines in addressing incidents during which high demand for medical care will necessitate that healthcare providers prioritize allocation of limited resources to where they provide the most benefit.
