TRAINING FOR MEDICAL EMERGENCIES BY HELICOPTER IN CHINA
From November 5 to 7, 2019, our team of FAM volunteer doctors trained in helicopter emergency medicine in Beijing, for the 4th time in China.
In total, 97 trainees from 4 emergency centres, 7 hospitals, 14 general aviation companies and 3 rescue companies, as well as the China Air Medical Rescue Alliance, were trained.
Since 2016, FAM HEMS Training in China has become a “brand”which is gaining in notoriety. HEMS’ development in China has also grown rapidly in recent years. As proof of the effectiveness of these trainings, the people trained on the spot hope that we will come in China for the 5th time in another city.
With the patronage and involvement of the Airbus Foundation and in particular Laurie Ceccan and Ralph Setz.
As a reminder, training modules in emergency medicine are carried out in pairs by the two foundations. They enable local doctors and poorly trained medical staff to familiarize themselves with French techniques in emergency and disaster medicine and in particular with the use of rescue helicopters.
Participants have the opportunity to train in real rescue conditions using a helicopter, combining theory and practice.
Such training programs have already been implemented in Brazil, Mexico and China.
Many thanks to our trainers on site: Jean-Claude Deslandes, Jean-Pierre Auffray, Jean-Cyrille Pitteloud and Ralph Setz.
