MAJOR INCIDENT MEDICAL MANAGEMENT AND SUPPORT: THE PRACTICAL APPROACH AT THE SCENE (MIMMS) 4TH EDITION
The Major Incident Medical Management and Support (MIMMS) course, developed by the Advanced Life Support Group (ALSG), is taught to healthcare professionals worldwide. Integrated into both civilian and military medical practice, MIMMS is the only international standard in major incident medical management – focused on delivering the medical support needed to many casualties through triage, treatment and transport. The Fourth Edition of Major Incident Medical Management and Support: The Practical Approach at the Scene is the most current coursebook for the MIMMS curriculum.
This new edition has been fully revised to ensure doctors, nurses and paramedics are able to prepare for, and implement, a structured response to major incidents such as those involving hazardous materials, natural disasters, mass gatherings, multiple burn casualties and large numbers of children.
