Which cards (if any) can remove a chestburster from a player's deck?

Why can't medics remove facehugger strike cards?

"Quarantine Procedure" can kill the top card in a player's deck. We used it as a last resort once, and timed it just right to kill a Chestburster and keep someone alive...at least for a while.

Johner has his I Mostly Just Hurt People which has the added bonus of mobilizing immediately to remove a new Chestburster. There's also Sister Ripley's Ultimate Sacrifice, but that's more of a life for a life (or two) situation.

Facehuggers can't be healed because they are a kind of enemy, so it's not a true strike card. You can see this on the top of the card and compare it to standard strikes.

thematically it says 'medic' which I look at as a field medic, not a full surgeon

Final Sacrifice from Sister Ripley's character deck also allows you to remove kill all Chestbursters and Facehuggers, admittedly at the rather high cost of killing your character

There is also the '85' card that allows you to examine the top three cards of your deck - kill one, discard one, put the other back. Even better than Quarantine at catching chestbursters.
(( Name escapes me - Medical Scan or something like that. Costs 5, provides Attack. ))
