Abstract:

Two large-scale computerized simulation models were developed to study the health related consequences of nuclear warfare. Both models use survivors and fatalities as summary measures of emergency health care system effectiveness. The purpose of the study was to develop an alternative measure of effectiveness that deals with the nature and extent of physical disability among survivors of nuclear attack and, as such, provides a measure of their economic utility.
