The Paediatric Blast Injury Field Manual

Former army medic Dr Paul Reavley explains why children require different treatment to adults and are prone to serious injuries. 



The Field Manual has been created to provide technical guidance for those with medical training.  It enables the user to adapt their knowledge to the treatment of severely injured children.  It has paediatric-specific sections on:

  • Pre-hospital care and transport

  • Damage control resuscitation, surgery and intensive care

  • Surgery (thoraco-abdominal, limb, burns)

  • Neurological injury

  • Ward care

  • Rehabilitation

  • Psychosocial support

  • Ethics and safeguarding

The Manual is also intended for use by anyone who is required to plan for the treatment of severely injured children, so they can see the resources, training and equipment that is required in a medical facility likely to receive blast injured children.
