Field Hospitals in World War 1
Transcript of Field Hospitals in World War 1
Project by: Lindsey Singer
a temporary hospital set up near a combat zone to provide emergency care for the wounded
Who was involved
Most common injuries
A field hospital was a few miles behind a battlefield
Where was it and why was it important
Before, soldiers just stepped over dead bodies
started to use them like sand bags
Impact on WW1
There was usually four nurses and 1 head doctor. Each field hospital had about 25 beds.
The Red Cross In WW1
The red cross was a huge part in WW1 filed hospitals.
They recruited 20,000 registered nurses and doctors when the U.S when to WW1.
This was a place for soldiers to go and heal
It saved thousands of lives
without filed hospitals the casualties rates would have been much higher
(in medical use) the assignment of degrees of urgency to wounds or illnesses to decide the order of treatment of a large number of patients or casualties.
verb: triage; 3rd person present: triages; past tense: triaged; past participle: triaged; gerund or present participle: triaging
assign degrees of urgency to (wounded or ill patients).
This was used widely throughout WW1
In one of my favorite shows, during WWl they turn their home into a base hospital.
Thanks for listening, I hope you learned a lot about WW1 field hospitals
The most common injuries was infection. Though poison gas wasn't far behind
