Forms of provision of pre-hospital emergency care applied to the foreign missions by the Army of the Czech Republic



The thesis deals with the forms of provision of pre-hospital emergency care (PEC) by paramedics of the Army of the Czech Republic (ACR) and this means above all those forms of PEC which are provided by Combat Medic and Combat Lifesaver (a Combat Lifesaver trained soldier). With regard to the terminology and conception of the thesis comprising the areas of providing PEC, the thesis deals with the levels 1 3 outfeed chain, consequently with the care of the patient to the relevant Role 1 including. The aim of the thesis was to show the basic differences in providing PEC by the Army of the Czech Republic in comparison with the system of emergency medical services of the Czech Republic and then to find out what the specific qualifications for a paramedic´s profession are. I tried to demonstrate this knowledge both by the practical part of the thesis and by its theoretical part.The theoretical part deals with the problems of reaching the paramedic post of the ACR either the Combat Medic or Combat Lifesaver, by required education and necessary courses. Then the thesis deals with providing PEC in the battlefield, up to Role 1, when the wounded person is given the first aid by paramedics. The practical part meant the qualitative research in the form of semi-structured interview and research questions. There I managed to achieve particular aims of the thesis thanks to the interviews with the respondents of the medical personnel of the ACR and the respondents of emergency medical services. All the inverviewed medical personnel of the ACR had to participate in at least one foreign mission. Among the respondents were both the CLS trained soldiers, Combat Medics, and even one medical corps doctor. The thesis is a contribution to the paramedics of the ACR and paramedics in general who could learn more about the problems of providing PEC in extreme circumstances or possibly consolidate the knowledge they have. The research showed that the basic differences in providing PEC between the interviewed groups (it means the military paramedics and paramedics) are above all external factors, the terrain, and material or even the kind of wound or the hierarchy of the medical personnel of the foreign mission. The research also outlines the specifics necessary for exercising an ACR paramedic´s profession, and those are the courses they take before a foreign mission
