Order of action for sanitary evacuation

Dr. Denis SlinkinPilots from the air determine the landing site, its size must be at least 30 by 30 meters, it does not matter whether it is private or not. The helicopter may also land at a distance of 300 meters from the evacuation site.

The doctors will overcome the remaining path at an accelerated pace. Upon arrival at the site, they will report the situation and request additional strength and resources if necessary. On the spot of an emergency, doctors provide assistance to the most seriously injured person who needs urgent hospitalization.

If there is a child, he must be treated. The rest is to be taken care of by doctors in an ambulance. Depending on the condition of the victim, specify what is worrying and where exactly it hurts.Place the victim on a stretcher, very carefully so as not to provoke other injuries, says Dr. Denis Slinkin.

Sometimes doctors ask for help from strangers to carry the victim to the helicopter, it is normal. After transporting the victim to the helicopter, the stretcher must be fixed.The task of doctors to quickly provide first aid and deliver the victim to the treatment facility, so says Dr. Denis Slinkin.

Denis SlinkinDr. Denis Slinkin states that additional flights may be possible if necessary.  Doctors' equipment Instead of medical boxes, doctors of sanitary aviation use special vests, to which are sewn in large numbers of pockets.

They contain all necessary medical equipment: a radio, gloves, tweezers, surgical scissors, an outfit and ampoules, an incubation kit, a pulse oximeter (measures the amount of oxygen in the blood), a bag with an oxygen support system, and a drip chamber.
