Sir wazza wrote:In Khon Kaen and Udon, which im both familar with the following applies.

The Amphur Muang is divided into 4 sections and depending which area ur accident / medical emergency occurs will depend on what clincal response applies.

The repsonse is controlled by a call centre / disptach centre.

Private hospitals are exempt from this intial repsonse.

1 /- Chinese rescue pickups, I cant remember the actual name, mutinie ??? sic , these are based from the temples and can be volunteers or even crims doing parole or community hours etc. Little training or no training this and have inside a spinal board and a basic first aid kit and some carrry a well used Extrication collar ( Was it cleaned from the last blood contamination ?? ) . No Oxygen ., No Suction.
Watch ur valuables. Some people work there on weekends and do get 200 baht per shift, Seen as making merit etc.

2/- The local goverment hospital responds its ambulance. Has a crew of 2 or 3 . Driver, Hosp orderley and a Nurse. Depending on how much funding they have, the nurse might have gone to KK / Sirindorn College for a crash course in Pre Hospital Care. The equipment varies and no uniform standards. some dont have O2, in the small outlying areas and no portable suction.

3/- City Ambulances ie Udon Provincial Hospital, KK trauma centre. These have basic equipment, training as above , Portable O2 on most and suction. Crew of 3, Nurses are ER based and still dont have the Emergency Skills of a Paramedic. They provide basic life support only. Nurses do not admin drugs for resuscitation and can consult for some stuff. They can do IV's but they dont save lives.

No Defibs on ambulances except on the Kiprajak Military Hospital in Udon. BUT Nurses are not allowed under law to admin a defib.

4/- Private Hospital Ambulances, look nice , but have the same standard as above.

Scoop and run is the best policy.

There are NO Paramedics in Thailand, the law does not recognise them.

Thailand needs to focus on the basics of Resuscitation.

Airway, Breathing with O2 and Circulation with control of blood loss.

Untill they can competently keep some ones airway open and and not obstructed by the tongue / blood / debris etc, people will continue to die.

The head injury stats are shocking, if ur lucky to survive your primary head injury, then with a partially obstructed airway and no O2, u will develop a secondry brain injury as a result of the raised intercranial pressures.

These people are taken home to die 10 days after the accident or die from aspiration pneumonia coz they inhaled their own vomit whilst lying on their back with no body looking after their ABC's.

Now then who doesnt wear their helmets and who doesnt wear seat belts.
Excellent post/info from our very own medical man Wazza, this is just a sample of what makes this forum great...Cheers mate. =D>

Point to note about the rescue services, whose trucks you often see, is that they have little formal training, their drivers are not trained and as for rescue, very limited.
Call whatever nad hope they get to you before you die, in Udon OK, outside it is in the lap of the gods, have seen often ambulance driving around looking for a house, to assist someone,
Ambulances are not the hig tech ones we have in the west, so if you ha a major accident PRAY. :D

Beer Monkey,

A thoughtful and generous gesture. I have copied and printed out the numbers and have already installed the list under the newest refrigerator magnet. I also printed one to keep in the car.

Thanks for the information in an organized format. Even our housekeeper (who does not read english) will be able to find the right number in case of an emergency.

BM

Where is that info from?
I know the Tourist Police is 1155 (which gets you to a national number then transferred to wherever you are located)
I am not sure what is the 'Tourist Service Centre' you have listed under 1155 ?



Taken from the reverse of a Police ID Card:

Udon Tourist Police Office - 042 211291 Fax 042 328189
'For help and Emergency Call 1155'

All Tourist Police Officers are 'supposed' to be able to speak English (Most can, some extremely well)

Add these to your list :)

Evidently, not for those cases in which your house is burning. ;)
But consider cases when you would like to complain over garbage burning (within the Tessabaan area), unsual noise or air pollution and smoking in public places etc. Community services in general. Ever missed a street light? Or questions on zoning if applicable.

Another new number: 117

Do they have English speaking operators on duty 24/7 or are you better off getting a Thai speaker to call?
No man has a good enough memory to be a succesful liar.

I don't know and I don't expect English speaking operators 24/7.

But in the case of number 199 it is recommended to learn to express the following information:
"Fire" in a reasonable version of English.
To be able to pronounce the burning house address in Thai. Like the 90-days report person within Immigration increasingly likes to ask you where you would be living in Udon or Nong Bua.
xxx Moo xxx - Moobaan name - Tambon name should be sufficient for 199.
