Response of Dhulikhel Hospital after Earthquake in Nepal, 2015
The Nepal Earthquake of 2015, a 7.8 magnitude quake, struck near the city of Kathmandu in central Nepal on 25 April 2015. It affected more than eight million people: about 9,000 people were killed, many thousands more were injured, and more than 600,000 structures in Kathmandu and the surrounding towns were either damaged or destroyed. Immediately after the quake, the Nepalese government declared a state of emergency.
Shortly after the first earthquake struck on 25 April, patients started arriving at Dhulikhel Hospital (DH) in Kathmandu. DH commenced free medical services immediately after the earthquake. All five operating rooms at DH treated earthquake trauma victims for nearly 24 hours a day for more than a week. Over the course of six weeks, there were 549 surgeries performed.

Understanding Terror Medicine
The field of terror medicine emerged early in the 21st century prompted by an increase of global terrorism. Its growth has reflected the need for the medical community to anticipate and optimally react to a terrorist threat. Terror medicine overlaps with aspects of emergency and disaster medicine. It also includes a constellation of medical and security issues distinctively related to terrorist attacks. Terror medicine encompasses four broad areas: preparedness, incident management, mechanisms of injuries and responses, and psychological consequences. A substantial literature on the subject has developed in recent years.
