Helicopter evacuations in the Nepalese Himalayas

Suvash Dawadi

With increasing availability of helicopters around the Nepalese Himalayas, the number of helicopter evacuations are said to have increased.

Suvash conducted a retrospective analysis of hospital records of all helicopter evacuations which were brought to the CIWEC Hospital and travel medicine center in Kathmandu, Nepal over two years 2016 and 2017. There were a total of 1354 helicopter rescues, amounting to 79.96 evacuations per 100,000 tourists entering Nepal and 905.62 evacuations per 100,000 trekkers/ mountaineers. Most evacuations were conducted in the Everest region (78.7%) and 96.89% of evacuations took place at high altitude (> 2500m) areas of Nepal. Among the cases, 56.67% were evacuated for high altitude illnesses and there were cases of respiratory conditions (12.10%), gastrointestinal diseases (9.86%), trauma (9.27%) as well as frostbite (3.30%) among others. With 55.69% evacuations only needing outpatient care on arrival at the medical facility, the legitimacy of many “rescues” remains in question.

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
