Fortis Hiranandani hospital, Vashi, organised a workshop on World Trauma Day

On World Trauma Day on October 17, Fortis Hiranandani hospital, Vashi, organised a workshop for Navi Mumbai traffic police on how to handle cases of road trauma.
The hospital authorities believe that trauma can be fatal. It can also lead to complications in a person's life.
Everyday men, women and children suffer from trauma, mostly from head injuries.
A sudden fall, a road accident or a sports injury can become dangerous.
Vijay Patil, DCP (traffic) was present at the event. Three doctors of the trauma-care team — Dr Sunil Kutty, neurosurgeon, Dr Sanjay Dhar, orthopaedic surgeon, and Dr Ramesh Tikare, consultant anesthetist — supervised the event. They spoke about trauma management and emergency procedures.
Dr Sanjay Dhar, said, "'Golden hour' in a medical emergency is crucial. Every moment counts. If an injured person is admitted to hospital in time, his life can be saved. One must also bear in mind that airway, breathing and circulation — ABC — of the patient should not be disturbed."
'Golden hour' lasts for about one hour.
If the critically injured is admitted within an hour, his life can be saved.
