Abstract

Technically advanced installations and dense population in industrial areas increase the danger of technological accidents with mass victims. Any accident even in a city is problematic regarding medical care. The greatest problem in Russia is organization of timely and qualified medical care in the vast regions of our country, which are often far from any populated area. The recent disasters show that it is necessary to further perfect the whole system of emergency medical care, analyse it and support it by scientific elaboration. The plan envisages a two-stage organizational system of medical care.
