Médicalisation d’un trail par un médecin généraliste : pathologies rencontrées, matériel médical et traitements nécessaires

Abstract : INTRODUCTION: Numerous trail-running races are organized every year in Rhone-Alpes. These events require an important medical assistance because of the environment and the encountered pathologies. General practitioners can be requested to supervise these events. There are many research studies related to the ultra-endurance but few on trail-running lower than 80 kilometers. Furthermore, there are no recommendations about the medical kit to supervise a trail-running race. The main objective of this work is to provide to the physician a guide with the necessary medical equipment to supervise a trail-running trial lower than 80 kilometers. METHOD: A literature review on this subject was realized to determine the main pathologies which can occur during a trail-running race. The Delphi method was used to determine the needed equipment list. The experts who took part in this study were doctors and nurses with an experience in the trail-running medical supervision. They evaluated by several iterations the relevance of the proposed equipment and treatments. RESULTS: Thirty eight experts took part in this work and three iterations were realized to get a consensus. The initial questionnaire listed 128 items. Following different proposals formulated by the experts, 123 items got a positive consensus. These items are the equipment and the treatments that must be part of the medical kit to supervise a trail-running race lower than 80 kilometers. CONCLUSION: This work allows a general practitioner to know the equipment he should have in order to treat the main pathologies he may encounter during a trail-running race.
