Équipement médical des refuges de montagne gardés de France et formation aux premiers secours de leur gardien‎ : une étude nationale descriptive

Abstract : Objective: The goal of this study was to establish a so far nonexistent picture of technical and human capacities to deal with medical situations. Methods: A descriptive prospective study was conducted from April to June 2013 by sending questionnaires to all hut keepers. A 69.5% participation rate enabled us to analyse a representative sample of 156 mountain huts. Analysis covered first aid kits, defibrillators, and first aid training of hut keepers. Results: Analysis of altitude and use of huts distinguished high altitude and medium altitude huts and technical huts. First aid kit equipment rate was 95% and there was an increasing trend of its use in higher altitudes (p=0,004). Defibrillator equipment rate was 26%. The better equipped huts were those above 2400 meters (OR 3,095; 1,079 à 8,877; p=0,036) and the busier (OR 1,707; IC 1,156 à 2,520: p=0,007). Eighty-six percent of the hut keepers were trained in first aid and 44% were trained during the last 12 months. Conclusions: Heterogeneous and extensive medical equipment has been described. The improvement of first aid kit according to the established typology is necessary and has to be assessed. Hut keepers' training, focusing on prevention and first aid, should be clarified for the specific mountain environment.
