2 doctors from our medical team returned from 5 days in devastation yesterday. based in the town of Bagh, the doctors treated upto 150 patients per day, some of whom had walked to their camp for 6 hours to get treatment. the doctors slept a few hours a night in a mosque - one of the only closed structures still standing that could provide them some protection from the increasingly cold weather. continual tremors in Bagh made continual sleep impossible. the message they conveyed is that there is an urgent shift in medical requirements from general first aid to decisive medical aid - essentially surgery. a medical care unit has also been established at muzaffarabad.
