        Medical Advances: Discussion Guide | Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund

        The Vietnam War brought some major advances in medical care, some of which are still standard practice in civilian medical care today. The advancement of medicine can be considered a positive consequence of the immense challenges soldiers and civilians face during war.

        What were the major medical advances of the Vietnam War? What is pre-medical care? What is that service called today? In what ways did the radio improve emergency medicine? How did Vietnam-era medical advances benefit civilians, and which developments continue to benefit soldiers and civilians alike?  Answer these questions and more with the discussion guide below, and the presentation included in the support materials. By the end of this lesson, students will better understand that the most critical national events often yield very important advances in science and medicine, which benefit generations to come.
