Purpose: This study examines patterns of diseases that were treated at the Iwate Prefectural Hanaizumi Regional Clinic after the Great East Japan Earthquake, which occurred on March 11, 2011, and caused serious damage in Japan.
Methods: Data on patients’ address, age, sex, and medical conditions, obtained from medical records of 583 (178 men, 405 women) patients who visited the clinic during that time period were analyzed.
Results: The diseases for which the clinic provided care were the same as those listed in a textbook of emergency medicine and previous reports.
Conclusions: It is important that emergency surgeons understand these common post-disaster disease patterns in order to provide disaster victims with appropriate care.
