Developed by UK and US anesthetists with extensive experience in theater, this book describes the latest anesthesia techniques, practices, and equipment used in current combat and humanitarian operations. Ch 31. Renal Support In Military Operations. Renal failure is a serious condition under any circumstances, linked significantly to increased mortality, although whether this relationship is causative or associative is unclear. Combat-related renal failure is uncommon, but potentially more serious than in the civilian context, due to the limitations of available treatment during deployment. This chapter covers renal support in military operations, including current options for support and future equipment development.
