“To set up this Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance triple play, WRSA linked to an American Partisan article posted by NC Scout, the gist of which was a link to an SF article on prolonged casualty care, and the “guerrilla hospital”.
Presumably in the context of people thinking of some sort of grid-down problem, long- or short-term, anywhere in a spectrum from between post-Katrina ugliness all the way to full flaming Zombpocalypse, including in the intermediate range, moderate to severe civil unrest/guerrilla warfare in CONUS.
Probably 95% or more of casual readers who follow that will be thinking, “Yessirree, we’re gonna need us one of them there go-rilla hospitals!”
Sorry, kids, you won’t be having any of that.
The article in the OP was concerned with actual SF medics, with access to modern drugs, satellite communications, air drops, a logistical tail that reaches any point on the globe, given enough time, and ultimately the entire US military’s medical behemoth for back-up, sooner or later.
You. Won’t. Have. Any. Of. That.
You won’t have anesthesia. You won’t have analgesia, except moonshine or weed, in all likelihood. So without those two things, you won’t have surgery of any type other than “Civil War v1.0″-type. Complete with bone saws, sepsis, and spurting arteries after amputations.”
A thought… if you have ANY medical knowledge, you will be quite valuable WTSHTF. Start learning some stuff now, including what you can substitute for your blood pressure medicine, diabetes, and get THIS BOOK – The Survival Medicine Handbook.
