position semi trucks along the highways that had basically a pre-op area and
an operating room.  The semi would pull up to the trauma site (car crash,
etc) and then start surgical treatment as they drove to the hospital.

I think the French call it SAMU, which started 30 years ago, about the time
of Cowley's writings.
