Historically, the military field therapy became organizationally formalized much later than military field surgery. An orderly system of therapeutic aid rendering within a single system of intermediate treatment of the wounded and the sick with evacuation on orders had been developed during the Great Patriotic War, ensuring return to the formations of as much as 90.6% of patients. In the conditions of local wars (LW) and armed conflicts (AC) the paramount task of military field therapy is the existence of therapeutic aid system based on regional and territorial principles, echeloning of forces and facilities, localization in the specific region of treatment facilities and their possibility, axis of evacuation, etc.
When organizing therapeutic aid, one should first of all be governed by the size and structure of medical losses (ML) of the therapeutic profile. In modern LW and AC, along with therapeutic medical losses characteristic for the war time, one should not rule out mass ML at restricted application of mass destruction weapons (MDW), as a result of destruction (at application of ordinary weapons or as a result of sabotage operations) of nuclear engineering objects, chemical enterprises, transport capacities containing toxic chemical substances (TCS).
This means that in the conditions of a modern war, LW and AC the actuality of battle therapeutic pathology remains, which should be taken into account at organization of therapeutic aid for the sick and the affected.
an armed conflict, a local war, therapeutic group of casualties, combat related therapeutic pathology, rendering therapeutic care.
