» The Renal Disaster Task Force of the TSN

The Renal Disaster Task Force of the TSN works conjointly with the ISN Renal Disaster Relief Task Force European Branch. In 1999, it collected and analyzed data from 35 hospitals with dialysis facilities where 639 Marmara earthquake victims with ARF related to crush syndrome were treated. The results were published in various peer-reviewed International Journals. Also, a book in English relating this experience was written by Dr. Sever, Head of the Task Force, and was published by Karger in 2005.

The Task Force with coordinators in almost every major city is continuously educating physicians& nurses on Renal Disaster relief with yearlong courses & seminars throughout the country.
