Emergency and Humanitarian Medicine

The field of emergency and humanitarian medicine (NKM) includes instruments and units for use in field hospitals as well as complete turnkey solutions for the construction of mobile, semi-permanent and permanent field hospitals on water or on land.

These solution packages – developed in cooperation with leading field hospital manufacturers – provide all instruments, medical units, consumables and equipment necessary to ensure high-quality medical care in a disaster situation.

The constantly changing, and often extremely difficult, conditions in the event of a natural disaster place heavy demands on equipment. On the one hand, equipment must be robust and compact and, on the other, feature the highest level of technical standards and user safety – a challenge that KARL STORZ continuously meets with new solutions.

KARL STORZ telemedicine components are also included in the NKM service portfolio. A link to ORs throughout the world allows the operating surgeon to retrieve a level of professional expertise and support that would be otherwise unavailable in such situations.
