S3 E1: Patching Blast Injuries in the Ruins of Raqqa
In this episode of Everyday Emergency, we hear from three MSF medics who have been working in the Syrian city of Raqqa. A former stronghold of the so-called Islamic State, Raqqa is littered with improvised explosive devices and remnants of war that are causing dire consequences for people returning to the city.
Doctors Javid Abdelmoneim and Pippa Pett, along with nurse Michael Shek, helped to establish a trauma stabilisation unit in the east of Raqqa. The role of the unit is to save lives in the crucial minutes after trauma.
In this episode, Javid, Pippa and Michael describe their first impressions of the city, what it was like to run a trauma unit from a suburban house, and how children with a little known disease are finally getting the help they need.
