La trousse de secours des guides de haute montagne : contenu réel et usage

Abstract : The profession of High-mountain guide is to evolve its customers by securing them in a dangerous and isolated environment. For this, his first aid kit is an indispensable and obligatory tool, even if its content is not regulated. We assessed the actual content of the first aid kit of the guides and its use through a questionnaire, and we analyzed the obtained results with regard to the risks of the high mountain and their management recommendations, detailed in the first part of the book. It appears that the composition and the use of this kit depends on each guide, depending on his own experience and type of practice. There is a tendency to privilize first aid and withdraw drugs. Most of the guides adapt the composition of their kit to the planned race and they generally have a good knowledge of the treatments they carry. However, few guides contact a doctor before giving a medical treatment, and just the idea that they do not have the status of health professionals, and therefore can not deliver drugs, is recurrent. So it can be interesting to complete their training via a specific course dealing with the content of the first aid kit, its good management overtime and its use with a medical assistance support.
