Therapeutic Doctors` Competency during the Providing Emergency Medical Care at the Scene

Keywords: Simulative medicine, Emergency medical care, The scene of an accident, Therapeutic doctors


During the last years it has been observed the worldwide trend in regular creation, upgrading and implementation of emergency care protocols at the prehospital stage in the medical practice. The huge role is given to the methods of doctors` simulation preparedness in case of the emergency care at the scene. Modern doctors` preparedness requires practicing of the resuscitation in the simulation centers on the specific dummies or devices without the risk of making any harm to the patient, developing the ability to make quick and correct decision and conduct all necessary manipulations and interferences without any mistake. According to the professional literature, it is usually observed the lack of practical skills concerning the emergency care at the scene of an accident among therapeutic doctors`. Nowadays, one of the most important task undergraduate and postgraduate medical educations is the creation of simulation centers for quality training of highly qualified specialists, including emergency medical care.

The aim of given investigation is the evaluation of the professional therapeutic doctors` competency in providing emergency medical care at the scene in accordance to the latest recommendations of the European Resuscitation Council (2021) and American Heart Association (2020). According to tests conducted in the 2017-2018s among therapeutic doctors about their abilities of the resuscitation conducting, it was revealed that only 52% were able to diagnose the state of clinical death; 63% - were able to perform chest compression; 15% were able to provide opening of airways; extremely low was the numbers of those who were able to use AED and ventilation – 5% and 9% correspondently. Therefore, one of the key tasks of the modern medical simulative education is to prepare therapeutic doctors to be able to perform emergency resuscitation at the scene.

Key words. Simulative medicine, emergency medical care, the scene of an accident, therapeutic doctors.
