Blood program in World War II by Douglas B Kendrick( Book )

4 editions published between 1964 and 1989 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Medical officers who, like myself, served overseas in World War ll, and who observed the management of casualties with and without the use of whole blood, are peculiarly qualified to appreciate the achievements of the whole- blood program. Its results unfolded before our eyes. In forward hospitals, we saw men saved from death and sometimes, almost brought back from the dead. In fixed hospitals, we received wounded men who once would have died in forward hospitals, or even on the battlefield. We received casualties with the most serious wounds in good condition. With the aid of more blood, we performed radical surgery upon them, and we watched them withstand operation and, with still more blood, recover promptly from it. There are more than the usual reasons for the preparation and publication of this volume on the whole-blood program. A major reason, of course, is the impact this therapeutic advance has had upon medical care, civilian as well as military. Another reason is to keep faith with the multiple personnel who planned and operated the whole-blood program, and with the millions of American citizens whose gifts of their own blood saved the lives of so many American soldiers, who otherwise would have died

In order to meet the challenge of World War 2, the Medical Department of the United States Army expanded from a service equipped to support a peacetime army of some 200,000 men, based largely in the Zone of the Interior, to one that provided the best of medical and surgical care for more than 8,000,000 American soldiers serving on a war footing on every continent and under the most varied conditions of climate and terrain. The theme of this book is the administrative history of the Army Medical Department in World War 2. It comprises part of the official history of the Army Medical Service published under the direction of the Surgeon General (Administrative or Operational Series). (RWJ)
