2. Suvorov S.G., Rosinov V.M., Chogovadze G.A., Divilina Yu.V., Ezel’skaya L.V., Makhnev V.G. Use of Helicopters for Medical Care Provision to Children Victims of Road Traffic Accidents

The data of comparative analysis of two modes of use of ambulance helicopters for evacuation of 180 children injured in road traffic accidents to the stage of specialized medical care are presented. The data embrace 2001–2011 period and deal with casualty evacuation from accident site and interhospital transfers from medical facilities of Moscow Oblast municipalities.

The preparation of interhospital transfer to a specialized multifield pediatric hospital (level 1 trauma center) included casualty triage to separate hard cases in need of specialized (including high-tech) medical care. The children evacuated from en-route hospitals had significantly higher severity of injuries and state and needed substitution of vital organs’ functions and surgical intervention more often. The length of stay in resuscitation and intensive care units and in hospital was statistically significantly higher than of those evacuated from the accident site. The use of ambulance helicopters for interhospital transfers to the stage of specialized medical care is more expedient and efficient from medical and economic points of view considering use of resource-intensive technologies.
