Based on information from the field, medical supplies were purchased and shifted into the area of need. The list was a modified WHO essential drug list as per International recommendations. In addition surgical material and equipment was also carried into the field to be shared with teams in need. The St. John's Team primarily utilized the material. While withdrawing from the field, the remainder supplies were distributed. The Indian Armed Forces Field Hospital received residual Anesthesia supplies including drugs and circuits. Tubes, catheters, intravenous accesses, resuscitation equipment, intravenous fluids, intravenous antibiotics, suture and dressing material were also distributed for utilization in the field. Oral and Intravenous antibiotics, fluids, catheters, caps and gloves, intravenous disposables, dressing material, plaster of paris and vaccines (tetanus toxoid) were handed over to our base camp at Janvikas, Ahmedabad, to be utilized by follow up teams. Attached are the lists of items carried into the field.
