    Report Slams Medical Response to Katrina

    By CAIN BURDEAU
    Associated Press Writer

    "The entire system is broken and we need to fix it before the next major disaster strikes, whether it's another hurricane or - Heaven help us - a terrorist attack," said U.S. Rep. Charlie Melancon, D-La.


    However, doctors said "urgent requests for pain medication, IV lines, catheters, and other equipment were held up for days" because of disorganization and lack of money, according to the report. It described doctors using manual resuscitation masks rather than ventilators for hours and patients lying on the floor in New Orleans' international airport.

    It also said medical supplies from the Strategic National Stockpile failed to reach medical teams within 12 hours, as stipulated under disaster plans, instead taking three days to get to New Orleans - and even then there was a shortage.

    Doctors also complained of being stymied by a lack of satellite telephones, needed because land lines were out and cellular phone service was spotty.
