Abstract

Croatian military medicine developed with the Croatian State and Army. Severe war conditions called for a military medicine that would integrate civil and military components: General Hospital Karlovac, medical corps of the Croatian Army, and emergency, preventive, and general medicine care. The wounded from the entire battlefield of the Karlovac area were admitted to and treated at the General Hospital Karlovac, totalling 1475 wounded, 39 of whom died of wounds. 229 people killed in action were directly admitted to the Department of Pathology. Medical Corps of the Croatian Army provided only primary health care services and emergency care. Due to the vicinity of the battlefield the classic echelon structure could not be followed in the Karlovac area. The third component was civilian emergency, preventive, and general medical care. Concept of collaboration between civilian and military medical services was successfully implemented in the Karlovac area, resulting in effective health care.

Key words: War in Croatia, warfare health service, Karlovac
