Présentation de l'éditeur :
" This manual describes the principles of advanced vehicle accident entrapment rescue. It systematically details how the rescue process can be controlled and improved upon the use of hydraulic equipment. Through logical thinking the author leads us through the congeniality of process and equipment
If you come alive to the principles described by the author, you will discover that in your normal working practice, rescue can be regulated in a more efficient way.
A successful rescue operation does not only depend on the devotion of the individual firefighter but also on the team effort and the extent of co-operation and interaction between the different services in carrying out the necessary disciplines.
In brigades where principles and techniques described in this manuscript have been adopted, a much better service can be offered tu casualties who are the unwanted victims in an accident. It is proven, even in brigades with supposed optimal efficiency, a considerable improvment in methodology through the modern evolutions outlined in this manuscript, is achievable.
Devotion, techniques and training are the key factor for a successfull extrication. The success of ICET (the Netherlands) who specializes in research and education in advanced rescue techniques is significant. It reflects the increasing awareness of the need to improve prehospital care during and after entrapment.
The ultimate aim of the author, Holmatro and ICET, is to improve vehicle entrapment rescue in such a way, that the victims of accidents can be offered a better chance of survival and recovery, without unnecessary and avoidable harm through outmoded practices. "
