Medical care on operations and the evacuation of soldiers
Stoetzer, Marcus / Stübner, M. / Rana, Majeed / Gellrich, Nils-Claudius / von See, Constantin
Introduction: The Bundeswehr Patient Evacuation Coordination Centre (PECC) is responsible for organising the evacuation of soldiers to Germany. The aim of this study is to collect and analyse the data of 166 Bundeswehr soldiers who had to be evacuated to Germany by air from the ISAF, KFOR, and EU NAVFOR-ATALANTA missions in recent years.
Methods: By the PECC, we selected patients based on diagnoses of diseases and injuries of the mouth, jaws and face. The data on evacuations was analysed using the SAS 9.3 statistics program.
Results: Priority levels were indicated when requests for evacuation from the country of deployment were made. They were distributed as follows.
Discussion: The rapid evacuation of even complex cases is an important factor in the medical care of soldiers and at the same time ensures high survival rates after attacks and incidents involving severe injuries. The time from the request for evacuation from the country of deployment to the arrival of the means of transport in Germany was the duration of evacuation.
