Medical Resources After Nuclear War: Availability
Abrams, Herbert L.
JAMA. 1984 Aug 3; 252(5): 653-658.
A quantitative analysis is presented of the likely impact of a massive nuclear attack on the U.S. in terms of (1) the numbers and types of casualties that would afflict the population and (2) the numbers and types of health personnel, hospital beds, blood and body fluids, and medical supplies that would be available to treat these casualties. A significant disparity between need and the availability of resources is calculated, suggesting the difficulty of developing a meaningful medical response to nuclear war. (KIE abstract)
