The ARGO satellite system: a network for severe burns and disasters

  • G. Martinelli


The specialized hospitals for the treatment of severely burned patients in Italy, in the declared opinion of the Technical and Scientific Sanitary Commission, can totally satisfy the country’s day-to-day requirements. In the event of a disaster, however, there is a problem of exploiting them to maximum advantage because of inadequate information on their capacity and location. This lack of information makes it impossible to activate rapid transport of patients requiring hospitalization to the most appropriate facility.
