HMC issues Mideast’s first trauma manual

Qatar’s Hamad Medical Corp (HMC) has unveiled the first trauma manual in the Middle East region, Gulf Times has reported. Developed by the trauma department, the manual aims to unify the standards of trauma surgery and trauma care at all HMC hospitals. “In addition to the international medical references that are currently in use, this manual is considered the first regionally developed medical reference on trauma care and trauma surgery. This is why it was met with great satisfaction by many doctors in Gulf countries such as Saudi Arabia and Bahrain,” said Dr Hassan al-Thani, senior consultant and head of Trauma Centre’s surgery section.
