State-of-the-art counter-terrorism techniques, insights into modern medical practice, medical errors, and disaster prevention all intersect in this groundbreaking book by Adam Dorin, M.D., an anesthesiologist and medical director across 15 years. Dr. Dorin shows us why our healthcare system may be the next Ground Zero for terrorism and how many opportunities there are for terrorists to infiltrate the system. He offers a history of medical and healthcare-related serial killers, showing how they got inside the system to murder relatively easily, takes a detailed look at the profound problems that already exist in counterfeit and tainted medicinal products, and describes biological, chemical, and nuclear terrorism that could be used against our healthcare system. Most critically, Dr. Dorin presents a detailed blueprint for safeguarding our system and preventing medical terrorism from ever taking place. In tackling largely hidden but potentially deadly issues such as the failures of security at hospitals and surgical centers, Dr. Dorin's unique book offers the first in-depth public expose and loud alert to the risks and gaping weak spots in our healthcare system. Written simply and clearly, this work will interest all readers concerned with terrorism and the ways they might become victim to it. Dr. Dorin's warnings should certainly also interest and inform leaders and employees in the security, law enforcement, and medical fields.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Dorin, an anesthesiologist, naval officer, and medical administrator, aptly analyzes the US health care system and exposes its vulnerabilities. Who better than an anesthesiologist to look for potential weaknesses and devise a contingency plan-it is what he does every day....Jihad and American Medicine will open readers' eyes and prompt them to take medical security more personally. If it does, Dorin will have achieved his goal." - Journal of the American Medical Association
"[T]akes full measure of the state of American health care from a security perspective. Dr. Dorin, medical director at the Sharp Grossmont Plaza Surgery Center in San Diego, depicts a medical system riddled with loopholes that could be abused by terrorists or by single individuals intent on causing harm. He argues all health entities are at high risk for terrorist attack, because they represent the most vulnerable of 'soft targets' of our nation's infrastructure....Dr. Dorin's writing style is provocative, with attention-grabbing chapter headings....[H]e said he wrote the book not to make a political statement but to improve the health system and save lives." - Anesthesiology News
