Field logistical organization in the Italian Army Medical Corps
This paper briefly describes military organization and medical support in the field for fighting units in wartime. Primary elements of this situation include concentration in time of events; involvement of wide areas; numbers of victims greater than the capacity of local sanitary resources and structures, which are usually damaged and partially or totally non-functional. The same features are characteristic of mass emergencies after disasters. The principles of military sanitary logistics are therefore the same as those governing the organization of medical relief for civilian populations affected by disasters.
