The Chongqing first pre-hospital emergency care contest was recently held at the Army Medical University in Southwest China's Chongqing, with teams from nine municipal health commission units and 40 districts and counties participating.
The team from the Chongqing Health Center for Women and Children (Women and Children's Hospital of Chongqing Medical University), or CQHCWC, won the top prize among the nine units, according to total scores.
Members from the CQHCWC included Yan Yunsheng, an attending physician of the Intensive Care Unit, Ren Li, a senior nurse of the Obstetrics First Department, and Wang Pan, an ambulance driver.
The contest tested both knowledge and practical skills, including team cardiopulmonary resuscitation, emergency care for compound injuries, endotracheal intubation and driving skills, testing the core skills of each team, such as pre-hospital emergency care response speed, on-site handling capability, and teamwork ability.
In addition to the team award, Yan also won the third-place prize in the doctor professional group, Ren won the third-place prize in the nurse professional group, and Wang won the second-place prize in the driving professional group.
The contest was intended to improve the standardization, process and homogenization level of pre-hospital emergency care service.
Moving forward, the CQHCWC will further strengthen pre-hospital emergency care services and enhance comprehensive emergency treatment abilities to protect the health and safety of women and children.
