EUFOR’s A-Coy conducts medical training in Kalinovik_1

The Austrian company of EUFOR’s Multi-National Battalion (MNBN) conducted training in September 2014 with the Medical Team of EUFOR.
An exercise scenario was created where some soldiers were wounded and subsequently had to be treated properly. The injuries ranged from light abrasions to people collapsing and someone suffering from a heart attack. While the lightly injured people were flown out by a Blawk Hawk helicopter, the latter required a so called MEDEVAC (i.e. the abbreviated form for "Medical Evacuation"). A MEDEVAC is only requested for potentially lethal injuries. After the medical personnel within the company had performed first aid measures the affected soldier was brought to the Helicopter Landing Site. As soon as the emergency doctor arrived via helicopter, she checked the patient and ensured the immediate transportation to a local hospital in Sarajevo.
