The lessons from this book help surgeons prepare for emergency events that require disaster preparedness usually handled by the United States military, including chemical attacks and massive casualty events. Written by experts in the field perspectives that come from various combat zones and disaster sites, this book highlights the pitfalls to avoid, the organization that is essential for success, and the tips to help perform surgery in the most austere conditions . The book will address situations where surgeons may have to operate on wanted criminals, operate wearing chemical protective equipment, operate in a collapsed building, or even remove an unexploded device. The book includes cases from the battlefield that are designed to guide surgeons facing these scenarios in the civilian world.   There are also chapters detailing the lessons learned from the Boston Marathon Bombing, airline disasters, and the Oklahoma City bombing.


Unlike any other current text, Surgery During Natural Disasters, Combat, Terrorist Attacks, and Crisis Situations is an excellent resource for all surgeons who might be faced with these events.

Review:

“This is a collection of reports from natural and manmade mass casualty situations with high level statistics in some cases and bedside clinical pearls in others. ... Providers in trauma centers including surgeons, anesthesiologists, and emergency medicine specialists are an appropriate audience. ... As experience in this area is sporadic and unpredictable, this is a worthwhile reference for these providers who could encounter the sudden need to treat victims of these events.” (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2016)
