Major Incident Medical Management and Support - The Practical Approach at the Scene


 

Major Incident Medical Management and Support (MIMMS) is the coursebook for the Advanced Life Support Group’s internationally taught training for health care professionals responding to major incidents. The practical approach employed in MIMMS has proved an invaluable aid to both civilian and military doctors, nurses and paramedics working in disaster management worldwide.The third edition has been fully revised to make MIMMS appropriate for the 21st century, with greater emphasis on human factors, a more structured approach to medical management, and new chapters on:
  • Hazardous materials
  • Incidents involving large numbers of children
  • Management of a major incident with multiple burn casualties
  • Mass gatherings
  • Natural disasters 
There are also revised appendices covering responsibility for the dead, radio use, and voice procedures, and what to do beyond the immediate situation.Covering all eventualities in medical management during major incidents, MIMMS provides a comprehensive and practical guide for all who are involved in this aspect of emergency medicine.
