Portable Hospitals Follow
U. S. Troops Through Jungle
United States army medical detachments care for the
wounded in portable dispensaries and base hospitals amidst
the background of jungle warfare in the South Pacific. So
trained are the medical personnel to cope with jungle under
brush that soldiers wounded in action can be given first aid,
frequently within ten minutes. Major operations are often
performed within thirty minutes of the casualty.
First aid stations are found within 50 to 100 yards of the
foremost fighting lines, and
litter bearers dart in and out
of the underbrush picking up
the wounded, and carrying
them to battalion first aid sta
tions. Jungle fighting knows
no curfew, and twenty-four
hours of the day doctors with
trained helpers are on duty at
these first aid stations.
In picture at top two members
of a medical detachment ready
their portable hospital equipment
for movement up to the front.
The detachment is trained to
stand up under long marches over
the roughest terrain, as shown in
picture above. Here stretchers are
being used to portage the supplies.
Patients leave the portable hos
pitals the follouing day and are
carried on litters to clearing sta
tions, some three or four miles
further to the rear. These hos
pitals are very complete. Almost
every type of wound or jungle
disease can be treated.
