Basic Principles of Mass Gathering Medical Care. Supercourse Lectures 17951
Baez, A. and Sztajnkrycer, M. (2015). Basic Principles of Mass Gathering Medical Care. Supercourse Lectures #17951. The Department of Emergency Medicine, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine.
This PowerPoint presentation is a brief overview of medical care aspects of mass gatherings. It includes nine planning elements (e.g.., triage, personnel, data collection, and crowd size); a planning timeline; anticipated conditions by event; and lessons learned from past events. The authors emphasize the use of incident command, but readers should note that the charts they include are neither NIMS compliant nor mass-gathering related.
