Description

Disaster medicine encompasses the medical response to mass casualty incidents including rail, air and road traffic accidents, domestic terrorism and pandemic outbreaks, as well as the global issues of conflict and natural catastrophe. Where once this area was regarded as a niche interest of those wishing to carry out humanitarian assistance abroad, now it is to be a nationally-regulated field with intercollegiate support and a firm academic basis. Making Sense of Disaster Medicine is the first introductory text of its kind where leaders in the field provide targeted insights to make sense of this broad and exciting field of medicine; it provides essential reading for all medical students and professionals who may find themselves responding to incidents on the scale of the 7 July 2005 terrorist bomb blasts in London, or the December 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami.
