The third edition has been fully revised to make MIMMS appropriate for the 21st century, with greater emphasis on human factors, a more structured approach to medical management, and new chapters on:
- Hazardous materials
- Incidents involving large numbers of children
- Management of a major incident with multiple burn casualties
- Mass gatherings
- Natural disasters
There are also revised appendices covering responsibility for the dead, radio use, and voice procedures, and what to do beyond the immediate situation.
Covering all eventualities in medical management during major incidents, MIMMS provides a comprehensive and practical guide for all who are involved in this aspect of emergency medicine.
