Craigie, R.J., Farrelly, P.J., Santos, R., et al. (2018). Manchester Arena Bombing: Lessons Learnt from a Mass Casualty Incident. BMJ Military Health. 166(2).
The authors share lessons learned from an arena bombing in Manchester, UK including: the benefit of treating injured parents and children in the same ward; preparing civilian surgeons with surgical trauma skills; canceling elective surgical commitments to make room in the event of a mass casualty incident; and understanding that secondary effects of mass casualty incidents affect medical services regionally.
