Abstract

In military medicine, much more often than in the civilian sector, a disaster situation is distinguished by the fact that within a narrow space of time many patients can require treatment. It often happens then that the medical arrangements provided for the treatment of the injured are overstretched in relation to their capacity particularly in terms of space, instrumentation, and apparatus and also in terms of personnel. But one even has to reckon with the possibility that no medical arrangements whatsoever are available for treatment. Apart from that, in the case of a mass disaster in military medicine, there will be available neither enough anesthetists and other doctors, nor enough drug appliances, vaporisers, gases and, oxygen. Accordingly all first and emergency aid anesthesia in the front line requires readiness to compromise and improvise while still trying to secure the highest possible anesthesia safety for the patient.
