Summary

Disaster medicine is constantly gaining in importance owing to various trends, including the rising global population, climatic changes, and terrorism. Nevertheless, available textbooks on the subject suffer from being too theoretical; they provide little practical advice and few methodological guidelines. This book redresses the balance. It attaches central importance to the key component of decision making by explaining what needs to be done for patients in particular situations, and the required order and timing of treatment measures. Simplified methods receive due attention, as it is often necessary for medical staff to administer primary treatment outside of their own specialty. The organization of rescue services, casualty transport, and hospital management are also discussed in detail. This book should prove an invaluable aid to all who may be involved in the response to major accidents and disasters, including medical and nursing students and ambulance crew, as well as medical specialists.
