Field of medicine: Emergency medicine.
Format: Hardcover book.
Audience: Medical professionals who care for victims and survivors of disasters.
Purpose: To develop a comprehensive understanding of disaster medicine and its role in disaster management.
Content: Disaster medicine is perhaps the most interdisciplinary of all fields of medicine, and few physicians are familiar with its principles, unique organizational demands, and clinical aspects. This book offers an exhaustive guide to the preparation, response, recovery, and mitigation or prevention of a full range of disasters, both natural and manmade. Part 1 is a comprehensive source of information on every aspect of disaster medicine and management. Part 2 features a compilation of specific event types (including natural disasters, chemical events, biologic events, and events associated with blasts and ballistic and crushing injuries) organized to facilitate fast reference in a real-time setting.
