Mumbai to Have Integrated Trauma Care Facility

"We have formed the committee and the service, first of its kind in India, may start in June. Over 100 private and public hospitals at the primary, secondary and tertiary level would be part of the initiative," Damle said.

"Such a facility is the necessity of Mumbai as the ratio of trauma accidents are almost double the national ratio," he added.

"America has a huge trauma care network. Even helicopters are used for this service but we are starting here with ambulances. It's the modified version of American model and if found successful would be replicated in other major cities," he said.

The participating hospitals have been divided into four levels.

In a level one hospital, there must be round the clock presence of general surgeons, anaesthesiologist, emergency room physician, operating room staff, and respiratory therapist.

Availability of thoracic, cardiac, neurosurgery and all other surgical sub speciality experts must be available within 30 minutes. The hospital should also have well equipped dedicated room for trauma patients in the emergency ward.
