The Trauma Physician as a role is an extremely important one. You are in charge of medbay's ICU and ensuring any critical patients are quickly stabilized so they can be handed off to surgeons or the other doctors. You yourself are not meant to handle surgery but instead stay ready for any further emergencies, however you are specially trained to be able to do basic surgery if there are no surgeons available. Working closely together with the paramedics is critical for this task.

Overview

You start with an advanced first-aid kit and a health analyzer. Your main work will be in the Medbay, where there are spares, vending machines with more supplies, and more specialized kits. You have access to some standard medication in the Medical Supplies room, though you should ask Chemistry for some more specialized ones.

Handling Patients

You can diagnose injuries with the help of a health analyzer, which you helpfully spawn with. Your PDA can also do a limited health readout.

You NEED to work with the rest of your team in medical to keep things running smoothly.

In terms of your equipment, the general rule is that chemical treatment works at all health levels, whereas physical treatments have limits where they become ineffective. Rolls of gauze and ointment are for minor injuries, and so only work if the brute or burn damage total less than 50 HP. Advanced Trauma and Burn kits are more effective. Beyond that, more advanced treatment is needed.
