Le rôle du gardien de refuge dans les problématiques de santé en montagne‎ : une étude qualitative sur le ressenti des professionnels de la montagne

Abstract : Objective : The goal of this study was to establish the feeling of the mountain rescue workers in order to determine the hut keeper's role in care and first aid. Methods : Qualitative survey via semi-conducted interviews of hut keepers, rescue doctors, first aid and mountain huts administrators in the French Alps. Results : The alert was essential.The hut keeper took care of benign affection; he dispensed first aid in case of accidents or injuries. His role in prevention was really important. From advising to supervising rope parties, he evaluated the participants and was watchful of them. Basic first aid equipment seemed to be vital for them. When this was proposed by a partnership like "Pharefuge", it was greatly appreciated. A basic first aid training was judged necessary for all of the hut keepers. The relationship between rescuers and hut keepers was essential because it made it easier to share information. The hut keeper was the reference person for doctors, rescuers and mountaineers. Conclusions: It seems necessary to improve first aid training in a hut keeper's degree and to organise an annual retraining with local rescuers. A study about the contents of the first aid kit plus an epidemiological study about health problems in some mountain huts should be performed.
