At hospitals, training for disasters put to test

70 intense minutes
Around 3 p.m. medical staff in the 13,000-square-foot tent, already packed with runners suffering from dehydration and hypothermia, made a smooth transition to also treat bomb victims. A well-oiled machine from years of experience, the team worked tirelessly over the next critical 70 minutes.
Right after the explosions
The medical tent was located on Dartmouth Street, just after the finish line.
Inside the medical tent
The tent is divided into 20 stations, each with eight cots and a professional medical team.
Teams help runners, victims
Bomb victims not requiring intensive care are treated in one of the 16 medical sections, then released or sent to a local hospital.
Where victims were taken
Victims where sent to seven different facilities in the city of Boston
