Mumbai to Have Integrated Trauma Care Facility

At least 100 hospitals in Mumbai will soon start an integrated trauma care facility to provide round the clock ambulance service and trauma care to patients on way to a hospital from an accident site. //

Facilitated by the powerful American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI), the emergency medical service and trauma facility would help citizens to avail fully equipped ambulances within minutes of an accident.

"The ambulance would have all the facilities available in an operation theatre. One doctors, one assistant, oxygen, other required machines would be placed inside it," said Navin C. Shah, co-founder of AAPI.

This alone would reduce trauma-related fatalities up to 90 percent, he stated.

A practising neurologist, Shah said the emergency call that would be received through a dedicated single telephone number would immediately direct a fully equipped ambulance to the accident spot.

On the way, the attending doctor would start consulting an expert physician of any nearby hospital and take the patient to the hospital best equipped to deal with the problems.

"It would be like a moving hospital for a patient requiring immediate attention. Trauma patients (or someone taking care of them) can dial an integrated helpline number 1298 and the service would reach them immediately.

"The expert team would pick the patient from the spot, treat him while on ambulance and bring to a nearby hospital depending on the kind of treatment required," Shah told IANS during a visit here.

AAPI, that has about 42,000 doctors of Indian origin as its members, would facilitate the proper training of few Mumbai doctors in specialised trauma care in the US. "At least four doctors this year."

Shah said he had a fruitful meeting with Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, Health Secretary A. Khan, Joint Municipal Commissioner G.S. Damle and chief executives of 10 top hospi
