Friday evening was dedicated for briefing and revision of the primarily acquired skills in trauma life support.

Next day, sparkling mountains fully covered by snow and a bright morning sun promised an exciting day.

The aim of morning session was to get familiar with the rescue material and the ski-sledges.

Afterwards the participants, divided into small groups, had to approach scenarios of injured persons in difficult mountain terrain.

They should secure the site of accident, do the medical assessment, call for professional rescue, evacuate the victim from difficult terrain and prepare him/her for aerial transport.


We would like to express our sincere thanks to the ski-patrollers Bigoude, Ingrid,

James and Damien, who prepared the training immaculately and assisted to the students with a lot of support, empathy and enthusiasm.

Also the medical supervisors Kristina Höschlová and Ivana Sikulová were very pleased to cooperate with them.
