This is an updated version of MedicalAttention kindly allowed to be modified and repacked by original author Lucian. I take no credit whatsoever for his work. You can find his original mod page here: MedicalAttention.
This updated version works with DayZ 1.10 through 1.14, fixes a few issues and adds a few new config options. Should Lucian ever want to return to working on his mod, I will gladly hand my small changes back over to him.

If you want a 'light' version that includes only the tiredness and drunkenness mechanics, protective gear configuration and zones, but no arm fractures and tweaks to vanilla medical conditions, look at MedicalAttentionUpdated-Core (which is a dependency of this mod, but can also be used standalone).


Depending on if you are using Namalsk Survival or not, you need to subscribe to MedicalAttentionUpdated-DepHelper-Namalsk or MedicalAttentionUpdated-DepHelper-Vanilla (do not use both!).

If you want to use MedicalAttentionUpdated with Namalsk Survival, you need these mods:
- Namalsk Survival
- MedicalAttentionUpdated-DepHelper-Namalsk
- MedicalAttentionUpdated-Core
- MedicalAttentionUpdated

Otherwise, you need these mods:
- MedicalAttentionUpdated-DepHelper-Vanilla
- MedicalAttentionUpdated-Core
- MedicalAttentionUpdated

Below you'll find the original mod description which has only been lightly edited to better reflect the current state of the mod and the game, including links to useful guides for server owners and players.

For your survival focused or hardcore DayZ experience, look no further than the MedicalAttention mod.

Challenge your players...challenge yourself....manage health, injury, and a sneaky little biohazard zone, like never before.
Tiredness, drunkenness, cholera, salmonella, wound infection, cold/flu, hemolytic reactions, blood afflictions, and indeed quarantine all present unique challenges and immersion for players of this mod. Also, zombies offer an increased threat of infection so extra care needs to be taken not to be hit by them, or you will likely catch a disease.
Disease and ailments (often with delayed onset) and increasing severity of illness, will require careful attention and treatment to maintain your characters health and vitality. Blurry eyes, sleepy eyes, vomiting, fluid loss, blood loss, and unconsciousness are all symptoms of these conditions, and will aid you in diagnosis so pay careful attention. Regular diligence to food, fluid and disease progression is required, and utilizing blood testing kits, saline bags, tetracycline, vitamins, charcoal, sleep, and blood transfusions will help conquer these conditions.


Server owner and admin recommendations
Make blood test kits more plentiful and reduce the spawn of vitamins, antibiotics and saline bags for a more challenging experience.
Make the hunt for NBC suit parts a challenge, consider where they spawn, hospitals/clinics for example, and reduce their number.
As advised, you are unable to eat/drink with a gas mask on. This mechanic can be extended to full face helmets and other mouth covering clothing.

Can sleep compatibility be added to the palletbed('s) from Boomlays Things?

There is an option to sleep when looking at the bed, when selected, it puts you in the lie down position on the bed but your eyes don't close.

Getting reports that players do not recharge the sleep meter if its raining. - "Been trying to work this out past few days, it seems it only works when it’s not raining weather your in it or not, I was laid in dry with afire going only half full but soon as rain stopped it started creeping up, I was dry and full food/water"
