Specialists of the medical service of the tank army of the Western Military District during a tactical exercise at the Mulino training ground in the Nizhny Novgorod region worked out the tasks of evacuating more than 400 conditionally wounded servicemen from the battlefield.

Military medics organized the evacuation using armored medical vehicles BMM-80. Also, in the course of practical actions, the servicemen used special RS-05 backpacks, designed to provide medical care in the field.

The transfer of the conditionally wounded was carried out on transport-immobilizing mattresses, allowing to ensure absolute immobility of a person with injuries of the spine, pelvic bones, upper and lower extremities, as well as to move the victim in an upright and inclined position.

Compliance with the standards for the imposition of a tourniquet, a fixing bandage and an improvised splint from improvised materials was carried out both on conditionally injured servicemen and on specialized dummies that completely simulate any wounds that a person may receive during hostilities.

More than 200 specialists from the medical divisions of the association and about 50 units of special equipment were involved in the exercise.
