Trail running: a challenge for medical support teams.

08:00 EDT 14th August 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Trail running: a challenge for medical support teams."

Trail running races are a real challenge for medical and paramedical workers committed to aid station/medical support system, because of their technical and geographical particularities. In this article, we review the different etiologies of collapse, digestive problems, kidney complications, diseases related to the environment and musculoskeletal injuries. Field care and prevention are also examined. Although injuries are often benign, some more serious problems may require rapid and effective intervention. Medical teams must be prepared for each of the different situations discussed in this article.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Information systems, usually computer-assisted, that enable providers to initiate medical procedures, prescribe medications, etc. These systems support medical decision-making and error-reduction during patient care.

An activity in which the body is propelled by moving the legs rapidly. Running is performed at a moderate to rapid pace and should be differentiated from JOGGING, which is performed at a much slower pace.

Systems that provide all or most of the items necessary for maintaining life and health. Provisions are made for the supplying of oxygen, food, water, temperature and pressure control, disposition of carbon dioxide and body waste. The milieu may be a spacecraft, a submarine, or the surface of the moon. In medical care, usually under hospital conditions, LIFE SUPPORT CARE is available.
