Expect the unexpected. Prepare for the unimaginable. Neutralize the effects of catastrophes. With the increased frequency of multi-casualty incidents and disasters due to both inadvertent and deliberate activities of mankind, the need for hospitals to be prepared to respond to and appropriately manage such incidents is of the utmost importance. Advances in science and technology enable man to devise and use lethal weapons and potentially lethal and harmful materials. The increasing enlightenment of man has resulted in the quest for emancipation and self-determination, often leading to conflicts and terrorism. These conflicts lead to injuries, suffering, and the loss of lives and limbs. The definitive care of the rescued victims of such incidents takes place in hospitals and is critical to their survival. In order for this technically and logistically complex process to be successful, it requires advanced planning and careful analysis. "Catastrophes" provides a simple, systematic and practical approach to the hospital management of such events.
