Mass Casualty drill
We received a 4 day visit from CDR Huynh, a trauma surgeon assigned to mentor at the National Military Hospital in Kabul. She and her colleague gave a series of superb lectures and demonstrations on handling combat injuries and setting up protocols to manage disasters. We also staged a mock mascas, or mass casualty drill with 10 mock patients ranging from a stable fracture to a heart attack. Shown are the arrival and care of the staff. Well handled although the event was not a surprise as we wanted.
