EX ANTE EVALUATION OF THE PRE-CLINICAL AID FOR ROAD ACCIDENT VICTIMS

EVALUATIE EX ANTE VAN DE PREKLINISCHE HULPVERLENING

More than 50% of the annual number of about 1500 fatalities in the Netherlands die in the period before they can be provided with medical care. This period may be extremely long in cases not witnessed by other road users. Unfavourable factors for early detection are : single car accidents, accidents in rural areas (especially on low volume roads), and darkness. Statistical data show, that the fatality rate is so much higher under these conditions, that the development of a system for early detection and communication could save many lives. Author/TRRL)
