PANO - Members of the Aeromedical Evacuation Team (AMET) of the Level-2 Field Hospital (L2FH) Rotation 4 have completed a week-long training course on aeromedical evacuation at Hoa Lac airport in the conditions that were close to those in Africa.

Equipped with standard-met aeromedical evacuation equipment, the trainees practiced scenarios, using helicopter Mi-17 of Regiment 916 under Division 371 of the Air Defense - Air Force Service.

During the training, despite climate changes and strict COVID-19 prevention regulations, they carefully and meticulously performed their tasks, practiced even the smallest movements to avoid making mistakes, especially in bandaging, immobilizing, and moving patients and monitoring their conditions during the evacuation.

The trainees were guided by instructors from the Military Medical University and virtually inspected by instructors from the Royal Australian Army Medical Corps in Melbourne.

During the course, the trainees gained experiences and other necessary skills to make them ready for the proud but challenging U.N. peacekeeping mission in the future. Colonel Paul Foura, Australian defense attaché to Vietnam, expressed his pleasure at the good outcomes of the course and believed that the AMET of the L2FH Rotation 4 will accomplish their missions at the U.N. peacekeeping mission.

PANO would like to introduce several photos of the training which was conducted in a prompt and serious manner, taken by reporters Trong Hai, Tuan Huy and My Hanh.
