Military Review

A flying operating room is being created for the Russian army.

In Russia, a mobile hospital is being developed based on the Il-76 military transport aircraft, which will be equipped with autonomous medical modules with a full set of diagnostic and operational equipment, according to News.

Currently, the development of special medical 20-ton modules in the dimensions of universal aviation containers.

Aircraft equipment will allow for even the most complex operations - including abdominal, maxillofacial, and neurooperations. Upon arrival at the hospital immediately on the runway will begin to accept patients. Stocks will allow him to work for several weeks.

Now the Ministry of Defense has one flying hospital - Il-76MDT "Scalpel-MT". The machine was created in 1980-ies during the war in Afghanistan to evacuate the wounded.

Airborne means of rendering urgent medical aid are used not only in case of man-made and natural disasters, but also in the conduct of hostilities and anti-terrorist operations. Therefore, the appearance of mobile hospitals at the disposal of military doctors is quite appropriate. This was confirmed by the Syrian experience,
Major-General Vladimir Popov, former head of the Federal Aerospace Search and Rescue Directorate at the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation (2003 – 2007), told the newspaper.

He noted that special aircraft will provide prompt delivery of military medics with the necessary equipment to any point of the territory of Russia, and if necessary, also abroad.

An inspection of the injured can be arranged on the spot, emergency medical assistance is provided, and if necessary, an operation is performed. Specialists can prepare a patient for transportation to a hospital or hospital for the provision of specialized care, for example, in case of burns, hypothermia, or injury, the expert said.

He recalled that in Soviet times, the possibility of creating a squadron of medical aircraft was considered.

Six to eight of these machines were planned to be evenly distributed throughout the country so that, if necessary, they could deliver assistance within a few hours. The medical assistance provided during the first hours greatly increases the chances of saving the victim. Unfortunately, the plans to create such an air squadron at that time could not be realized,
told the expert.

    The quicker the assistance is provided, the more chances for a favorable result of 5-7 sides will be enough.

    Mobile flying hospital, this is a very hot topic. Anytime, anywhere to provide medical care to people is worth a lot. The main thing is that the plans do not go wrong.

    It is desirable that an airplane that works from the ground does not always have good lanes.

    Again invent "lisaped". IL-76 can accommodate 4 container bodies of the KK 4.3 type with all medical equipment (available on the equipment of MOSN). To deploy a full-fledged mobile hospital, you will need 3 transport aircraft for functional containers and 1 for the delivery of a truck crane, a truck (KamAZ, Ural) with property to accommodate the hospital’s l / c and a 5-6 thousand liter water tanker. Fly, unload, deploy and get started.

    The wounded, anyway, need to be taken out.
    After treatment in the medical center (where there is also surgery), it is necessary to transfer it to the nearest equipped hospital in 2-3 hours, in which you need to spend time preparing for the operations.
    A plane with an operating room will spend the same flight time before arriving at the desired location.
