Description

By Dr Penny Starns

From the Korean War to Afghanistan.

Insights into surgical and nursing techniques that enable combat medical teams to save lives and alleviate suffering on the battlefield.

Since the discovery and widespread use of penicillin in the Second World War, which was a major turning point in 20th century combat medicine, there have been enormous changes in surgical and nursing techniques enabling frontline medical teams to save soldiers' lives and alleviate suffering on the battlefield. The Korean War saw the first use of helicopters to airlift wounded troops to medical facilities away from the front line, while the Falklands War, both Gulf Wars and the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan have been characterised by the introduction of new surgical procedures using image intensifiers and a trend towards laser treatments. Dr Penny Starns gives a detailed and insightful account of battlefield medicine from Korea to Afghanistan.

This book is Hardback.

Haynes Combat Medicine Operations Manual

Bought this for my daughter who is a hospital theatre nurse. She is also joining the Army Reserve to train as a combat medic so was pleased to receive the book as an additional learning aid. As with all Haynes manuals, it is well laid out, full of useful information and clearly illustrated. I'm sure it will be a great help to her as her training progresses. Also, an excellent price from the Tank Museum, and received it well packaged and delivered very promptly indeed. Highly recommended.
