Analyzing the daily reports of regular teams that we hear on our morning conferences, we can not say that is an increase of injuries in this period. Inaverage in emergency station receives every day from 17 to 30-38 patients. In the casualty department of the hospital ambulance inaverage falls from 2 to 5 patients. This is the usual mode of operation department and the city emergency station in winter. How can I explain? The nice thing is that people have opted own safety, so try not to go out unless absolutely necessary - says Peter Kovalchuk, Associate Professor of Traumatology, Orthopaedics and Neurosurgery BSMU.
In winter, the elderly need to use aids movement - Trostynka or sticks. For young people and teenagers, the winter for them - the joy, but the risk of injury. It is important not to get lost and know what to do with injuries in the winter.
Of course, if this happened in the city, ask around to called an ambulance. This will be the best solution. Doctors provide quality first aid and dopravlyat in hospitals for examination.
If this fails, we must first by self or others apply a bandage to transport mobilization shifts. This may be a simple bandage on the limb, if necessary, to tie up to a foot; tied to a limb plate, an umbrella or a thick magazine. If you can not call an ambulance, you must deliver the associated transport the victim to a medical facility. I stress this, even if suspected sprain. Because it can be hidden injury. Delaying treatment which may lead to irreparable consequences. Doctors perform the beam diagnostics, put a definitive diagnosis and provide qualified assistance.
