Abstract. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the inter-hospital medical evacuation of victims of road accidents on the Federal highway M-8 “Kholmogory” in the Arkhangelsk region to determine ways of further improvement.

Materials and methods of research: a retrospective study is carried out of 112 medical records of victims of accidents on the FAD M-8 “Kholmogory” in the Arkhangelsk region, evacuated for urgent reasons in the period from 01.01.2012 to 31.12.2018 from the Central district hospitals (CRH) to the Arkhangelsk regional clinical hospital – trauma center level I.

Research results and their analysis. There was an increase in the number of cases of inter-hospital medical evacuation of victims of accidents on the FAD M-8 “Kholmogory”, especially its sanitary aviation component-by 2018; all evacuees had severe polytrauma, the vast majority of them were evacuated from the CRH to the level I trauma center within the first day.

The need is substantiated to equip a helipad, purchase a helicopter, create full-fledged emergency response teams, and organize routing of victims of accidents on the FAD M-8 Kholmogory in the Shenkursky and Velsky districts of the Arkhangelsk region to the Velsky CRH-level II trauma center.
