Common Medical Injuries

Recommended Posts

I want to give all credit for this to Dex. I wanted to remake the thread and move it to the public section of the forums as a result of it having been reportedly too hard to find under the club tab. Found within are some of the most common injuries found on the server and how to treat them in a very simple, fundamental bullet-point layout. Questions, comments and concerns can be directed to me privately. The amount of detail that the medics put through their procedures is completely up to them, my only concern is that they follow the guidelines the same way that an engineer would for their specific duties.
