Introduction
Welcome to the official exhaustive Neurotrauma guide.

If you are currently in a medical emergency and there are no medical professionals around, immediately proceed to the first aid section.

If you are experiencing worrying or unusual symptoms, please consult the nearest medical professional immediately.

Remember to always wear a helmet!

Grasping how the human body functions - or malfunctions - can take some time.
This guide aims to provide crucial information for aspiring medical doctors until they have gathered enough experience.

Doctors should always keep a medical scanner and a hematology analyzer on their person - you won't know exactly what's causing all the symptoms of your patient unless you scan them (or you have extensive knowledge)!

Packing a first aid kit
First aid kits for expeditions
should contain the following (more suitable items are on the left):
  • Plastiseal or bandages
  • Sutures
  • At least one tourniquet
  • Blood packs (preferably O-), ringer's solution, saline or adrenaline
  • Calyxanide
  • Anaparalyzant
It is recommended to also bring the following on an expedition:
  • A fully decked out surgery kit -> 13: Surgical procedures and you
  • An endovascular balloon
  • A medical stent
  • Gypsum
These items may save a patients life if they suffer catastrophical un-clampable bleedings of the neck or aorta that require immediate surgery.

First aid kits for accidents inside the submarine
should contain the following (more suitable items are on the left):
  • Autopulse
  • Plastiseal or bandages
  • Sutures
  • At least one tourniquet
  • Blood packs (preferably O-), ringer's solution, saline or adrenaline
  • A defibrillator
  • Gypsum

13: Surgical procedures and you
Welcome to the surgery section.

Unless otherwise specified, "open and close surgery" as a treatment refers to executing the standard surgery procedure and terminating the surgery.

While performing surgery, you must always wait for the surgery afflictions to reach 100 before proceeding to the next step.

To perform surgery, you will at the very least need a surgery kit.

Packing a surgery kit
A surgery kit stores all the essential tools and instruments needed for surgery neatly in one place.
Surgery kits should contain the following:
  • Opioids or anesthetics (propofol, fentanyl, morphine or opium)
  • Scalpel
  • Hemostat
  • Skin retractors
  • Sutures
  • Blood packs (preferably O-), ringer's solution, saline or adrenaline
Alternatively, one can use a surgery toolbox instead of a medical container to neatly store all of the numerous small surgery tools neatly in one package.

Packing a bone surgery kit
If you are working with bones, there might be some additional tools you need.
Bone surgery kits should contain the following:
  • Surgical drill
  • Surgical saw
  • Osteosynthesis implants
  • Spinal cord implants

Standard surgery procedure
The standard surgery procedure is a sequence of steps that a surgeon follows to initiate surgery.
A suture can be used at any point during the surgery to terminate the process. You should always operate at an operating table, if possible. Not using either a table or propofol will lead to traumatic shock and death. Regular beds can be used as an alternative in a pinch.
In case emergency surgery is required on the field (as is the case with carotid artery bleedings or aortic ruptures), dragging the patient all the way back to the submarine would waste precious seconds and do more harm than good. You will have to operate without a table.

A suture is the final step in any surgery. Not terminating the surgery will lead to traumatic shock and death.

Step 1: Anesthetics
Anesthesia is required for surgery to begin. Administer an opioid of your choice or propofol to the patient.

Step 2: The incision
Use a scalpel on the body part that you wish to perform surgery on.

Step 3: Clamping the bleeders
Use a hemostat on the body part that you incised.

Step 4: Retracting the skin
Use a skin retractor on the body part that you incised.


You are now ready for more specialized applications such as osteosynthesis, amputation or organ procurement and transplantation.

Osteosynthetic surgery
This procedure will heal fractures and bone damage.
First, perform the standard surgery procedure.

Step 5: Drilling the broken bone
Use a surgical drill on the fractured bone.

Step 6: The implants
Use osteosythesis implants on the affected bone. The fracture is now healed.

Organ procurement/transplant surgery
This procedure will extract organs from still-living humans and optionally transplant a new one.
First, perform the standard surgery procedure on the torso.

Step 5: Cutting it out
Use one of the specialized organ procurement scalpels on the torso. You should receive the patients organ(s). If their organ damage was too high then the organ(s) will be destroyed instead.

Step 6 (optional): The transplant
Put the replacement organ inside the patient.
WARNING: If the patient is not immunosuppressed when performing this step, the organ might get rejected and be non-functional! If you plan to transplant an organ, administer an immunosuppressant first and watch the patients immunity using a hematology analyzer.

Amputation / limb reattachment surgery
This procedure will amputate one of the patients limbs.
First, perform the standard surgery procedure on the limb you wish to amputate.

Step 5: Sawing the bone
Use the surgical saw on the affected limb. Ending the surgery now will cause the limb to be amputated. If you want to revert the amputation, proceed to step 6.

Step 6 (optional): Reattaching the limb
Use the severed limb on the sawed bone. The amputation should now be reverted.

Side note: bionic prosthetics can not be used during surgery, but they do require a surgical amputation on the affected limb to be used. Terminate the surgery after step 5, then use the prosthetic.

Core decompression surgery
This procedure will heal bone death.
It is best advised to first transplant a fresh kidney to the patient so the bone death doesn't return post-surgery.
To successfully reverse bone death, you will need to perform osteosynthetic surgery on every bodypart in a relatively small amount of time. Bringing dead bones back to the living is no small feat. You should make sure to bring extra osteosynthesis implants in case something goes wrong.

CheeseWheelGuy Aug 4 @ 2:37am 
real question is, why wouldnt i do that?
jesse pinkman  [author] Aug 3 @ 12:25pm 
if it doesnt do anything then you probably dont have lua enabled and selected as server executable
Rodrigo the Almighty Aug 3 @ 11:30am 
well thats the thing, i use an empty blood pack but it doesn't do anything, does the patient have to be bleeding first? and is there a safe way to cause it bleeding?
jesse pinkman  [author] Aug 2 @ 8:04pm 
empty blood pack
Rodrigo the Almighty Aug 2 @ 6:45pm 
i love your guide but i was wondering, is it possible to draw blood from someone and if so how?
jesse pinkman  [author] Jul 28 @ 1:24am 
youre either failing the skillcheck or you dont have lua enabled. probably the first.
Rice Jul 27 @ 10:29pm 
So I'm probably just missing something, but, whenever I use sutures on Lacerations or Gunshot wounds, nothing seems to happen. What's up with that?
jesse pinkman  [author] Jul 26 @ 5:29pm 
use a wrench
Eucalyptus Jul 26 @ 2:52pm 
Amputated a dislocated leg and replaced it with a prosthetic, still reads as dislocated while I'm carrying the severed leg around.
