Description : ICRC mobile surgical teams, each consisting of a surgeon, an anesthetist and two or three nurses, perform surgical procedures on weapon-wounded patients and ensure post-operative care. Because well-equipped medical facilities are either unavailable or damaged, ICRC surgical teams work in basic care facilities or in vacant buildings with simple rooms converted into operating theatres.
