Prise en charge des traumatismes dentaires par les professionnels du sauvetage aquatique dans les postes de secours du littoral girondin

Abstract : The management of a dental trauma by beach lifeguards is part of their mission in terms of first aid on the beaches of the "girondin" coast. The natural environment of the ocean beaches, coupled with the overcrowding during the summer period and the presence of professionals assigned to ensure the safety of people, shows us the existence of a highly accident-prone area. We have therefore taken an interest in the management of dental traumas, in particular traumatic avulsion, by beach lifeguards on the "girondin" coast. Between the 2nd June 2020 and the 1st November 2020, we carried out a retrospective multi-center study in 12 rescue stations in "Gironde", in France. Our study included 119 participants. This part was followed by a short training session on how to deal with traumatic dental expulsion for a group of 10 people. The analysis of the results showed that the appropriate course of action, which partly corresponded to the data in the literature, was not known by all the professionals interviewed and resulted in a loss of opportunity for the patient. However, specific training on the subject leads to a concrete improvement in the knowledge of the participants and thus a reduction in the loss of chance for the patient. The long- term goal of our work is to optimize the management of dental traumas in first aid by providing trainings and adapted equipment, enabling rescuers to carry out their mission in the best possible way: providing first aid to people in physical and psychological distress.
