Abstract:

Nuclear war or accidental non-hostile nuclear explosion would obviously rank among the greatest disasters to affect mankind. In addition to massive numbers of casualties, depending on the circumstances, our ability to care for these casualties might also be affected. Despite the predictions of doomsday soothsayers, nothing is accomplished by burying ones head in the sand. Therefore, we must give consideration to how victims of a thermo-nuclear explosion would be cared for.
