Pediatric Blast Injury Field Manual
With The Pediatric Blast Injury Partnership, Imperial College London
and Save The Children
Often in conflict zones it is children who suffer.
There are multiple challenges to be overcome when treating a blast injured child:
- The doctors being called on to respond to these injuries often do not specialise in trauma or pediatrics, let alone both at the same time;
- Medical facilities in war zones often have limited access to resources;
- Treatment outside of primary care may be overlooked, such as rehabilitation and psychosocial support.
This 170 page manual was written by doctors to help address these problems. It was designed to be concise, easily navigable and intuitively understandable. The design work and illustrations were completed by myself over an ambitious timeframe of two weeks.
