Volgograd medical specialists received ANSAT. The machine is designed to transport particularly serious patients, and a medical team will literally have to assist and carry out complex resuscitation actions on the fly.
There must be two pilots, whereas the medical staff varies and depends on the situation. According to experts, most often an anesthesiologist-resuscitator and nurse-anesthetist are required. But a gynecologist, a traumatologist, a surgeon, a cardiologist and doctors of narrower directions can sit in the crew. All of them were trained in the All-Russian Center for Disaster Medicine.
The machine is fully equipped. There are a vacuum stretcher, respiratory equipment, monitors, defibrillators - all certified and modern.
When time is crucial, "air ambulance" literally "wins" the competition for the patient precious time. The patient gets into the hands of doctors three times faster than by car. In addition, "jolting" on the road can seriously aggravate the patient's condition, but in the air - no irregularities, no sharp turns, no traffic jams.
Just in three days after the arrival of ANSAT the crew of the helicopter delivered the first patient from a district hospital in Mikhailovka to the specialized regional medical center in Volgograd. It was a patient with body burns.
“The appearance of the helicopter in Mikhailovka is undoubtedly a landmark event. Now those patients who previously were not transportable for us can be moved to regional hospitals to receive high-tech care" - said Olga Bondareva, head physician at the Mikhailovskaya Central District Hospital.
