This publication is derived from and rooted in the authors' experience in designing the Health Support of a remote industrial site. Summarizing the main steps of this design is the purpose of the approach. As a first step devoted to “Evaluation” (Chapters 1–5) are displayed the fundamentals for designing a Project Health Plan, such as a realistic and operative definition of “patient stabilization” and the principles of tactical reasoning for Medevacs, specifying how pathophysiology and logistic… Expand

Surgical and Medical Applications of Drones: A Comprehensive Review
TLDR
Drones are used for surveillance of disaster sites and areas with biological hazards, as well as in epidemiology for research and tracking disease spread and Telecommunication drones are being used for diagnosis and treatment, perioperative evaluation, and telementoring in remote areas. Expand
Progress in evidence-based medicine: a quarter century on
TLDR
Evidence-based medicine progressed to recognise limitations of evidence alone, and has increasingly stressed the need to combine critical appraisal of the evidence with patient's values and preferences through shared decision making. Expand
Remote Damage Control Resuscitation in Austere Environments.
TLDR
Plasma-based resuscitation with decreased volumes of crystalloids and artificial colloids as part of damage control resuscitation has improved outcomes in the military and civilian sectors, however, translation of these principles and techniques to the prehospital, remote, and austere environments is challenging given the resource limitations in these settings.

TLDR
A wide range of viral, bacterial, and protozoal diseases pose risk to long-term tropical travelers, and education, screening, and HIV postexposure prophylaxis following involuntary exposure are recommended. Expand
