Abstract

Introduction

In this article, we aimed to share “the prehospital mass casualty exercise and trauma management course” which is performed at the 10th European Congress of Trauma & Emergency Surgery as a model.

Methods and Materials

The preparation, format, participant properties and the discussion of the course were evaluated.

Results

The course performed in 4 parts. On the first part, a panel discussion including opening, targets of course and a conference was performed. On the second part, the prehospital mass casualty exercise was performed. On the third part, the participants discussed in different 4 workshops. On the last part, basic discussion results were declared. At the mass casualty exercise, the scenario was adapted from bus bombing which was in Diyarbakir on 03.01.2010, 6 deaths, 96 wounded. Field and injury simulations were performed. We trained 15 paramedic volunteers to act as wounded patients. Moulage and make-ups were made due to previously defined injuries as in Diyarbakir. The victims were placed in simulated maneuvers field. Participants were accepted in five each groups to the maneuvers field and they were requested to manage the scene, triage, first aid. After the exercise, 4 workshops themed as Scene Medical Management, Ground and Air Evacuations, Preparedness of the E D's and Preparedness of the OR's, and ICU's were performed. The results of the workshops were presented at the last part.

Discussion and Conclusion

The participants expressed that observing and experiencing the chaos circumstances during the maneuvers are the most important things in scene management and these must be considered in preparedness and planning phases.
