Disaster medicine was developed in the 1980s by three doctors: Pierre Huguenard, Alain Larcan, and Surgeon General René Noto. Unlike emergency medicine, where one is dealing with a patient, disaster medicine has to deal with a group of patients. The number of doctors and care personnel is no longer sufficient for personalized medical care, and a different type of organization is required involving patient triage, focusing initially on those most seriously injured while the others are placed on standby. This is the first major difference.
