Russian Emergency Ministry’s doctors keep on accepting residents of Aleppo in need of medical aid

Doctors and medical personnel of airmobile hospital of the Russian Emergency Ministry’s Tsentrospas continue providing medical aid to the people of Syria affected by an armed conflict.

In all, they have helped to more than 1,250 people, including 462 women and 375 children.

In the past 24 hours they helped 63 refugees with 17 women and 23 children among them. 22 of them were surgical patients and 41 therapeutic ones.

Most of those coming for aid are children with infections of upper airways and festered wounds not treated properly because of lack of qualified medical aid, said anesthesiologist and resuscitation specialist of the Tsentrospas team Viktor Belinsky.

“Not treated wound leads to infection and a number of other diseases making a patient feel worse who then have to be treated in hospitals. The aid being provided by Emergency Ministry’s doctors to refugees allows them to be treated out of hospitals and get them back to normal condition without complications,” Mr. Belinsky said.

The Emergency Ministry’s airmobile hospital has 14 unified, 2 technological, 4 transitional and 18 lock units to accept 50 patients and to provide out-patient aid to 200 people. It includes an admission department, surgical department with a recovery room, 2 surgical departments, resuscitation department, intensive care department, 3 hospital departments, obstetric-gynecologic department, diagnosis department and 2 departments for outpatients.
