COA Global Surgery (COAGS) Executive Statement - Nepal Earthquake

The COA Global Surgery (COAGS) Program Executive is releasing the following statement regarding the recent Nepal earthquake tragedy and the subsequent COA member response to aid in this tragedy:

It is well known that orthopaedic services are one of the foremost surgical needs required in the early days and weeks following any major earthquake. Mass numbers of victims with multiple fractures, crush injuries and spine fractures will inundate any regular health system, but in a very poor country such as Nepal, their abilities could become further overwhelmed. With more than 5000 people dead as of April 29, 2015, the trauma injury triangle would predict five times that number of victims (25,000) with major trauma-based injuries. This number will no doubt rise once the many villages in the Khumbu Valley region north of Kathmandu are reached.
