HELMAND PROVINCE, AFGHANISTAN: British Army Medical Emergency Response team from the UK Med Group carry injured Afghan National Army (ANA) Sgt. Quem Abdulh into an ambulance, on June 11, 2007, as he is flow in by helicopter at the British Army Field Hospital at Camp Bastion in a location in the desert in the Helmand Province in Southern Afghanistan. Sgt. Quem Abdulh received multiple shrapnel wounds from a roadside bomb. The British Army hospital in Camp Bastion, run by the United Kingdom Joint Force Medical Group, provides the medical cover for all ISAF personnel operating in Helmand Province in Southern Afghanistan. In addition to the British, Danish, Estonian, Czech and American troops, who operate under the command of Task Force Helmand, the British hospital treats significant numbers of Afghan patients from across the spectrum of conflict, including Afghan National Security Forces, Taliban and civilians. The hospital, although situated in a tent, is the most advanced in southern Afghanistan. The medical team have developed groundbreaking trauma management practices including the use of consultants as part of its Medical Emergency Response Team. Early use of senior medical expertise ensures that clinical assessment can be started the moment a casualty is retrieved from the battlefield. This unique method of reducing time spent in medical reception and stabilisation has enabled patients to move from helicopter to operating table, via accident and emergency, sometimes in less than twenty minutes. The hospital boasts a five-bed accident and emergency department incorporating two portable digital x-ray machines, a CT scanner and an operating theatre where two patients can simultaneously undergo surgery. Ward space is provided for 25 (surging to 50) casualties including up to eight intensive therapy beds. (Photo by Marco Di Lauro/Getty Images)
