Hermann Brugger, chairman of the International Commission for Mountain Emergency Medicine ICAR MEDCOM, says:
Dr. Hermann Brugger
"In this presentation you will find the most up to date information on the medical aspects of avalanche rescue. By demonstrating the best practices for the on-site treatment of an avalanche victim, we aim to improve your knowledge and expertise. After watching this DVD you will be more familiar with what happens when a person is caught by an avalanche and, hopefully, you will be able to provide your friends or any persons buried by an avalanche with the best treatment possible. All video scenes have been acted but they do reflect real situations in accidents that have happened in the past. Please spread this information as widely as you can; this may improve avalanche survival in the future. However, don’t ever forget that triggering an avalanche is one of the most dangerous hazards in mountaineering. Be aware that prevention is the most effective measure to avoid a fatal accident."
