A one-year old child with concussion syndrome and high temperate was transported from Syunik Province to Surb Astvatsamayr Medical Center via a sanitary helicopter. This is what spokesperson of Yerevan’s Surb Astvatsamayr Medical Center Gevorg Derdzyan wrote on his Facebook page, adding the following:
“The baby was admitted to Meghri Medical Center, received first aid and was transported to Yerevan via a helicopter.
Doctors say the baby is in medium grave condition.
Thanks to the sanitary helicopter, the baby was transported to Yerevan in two-and-a-half hours. In a usual case, it would have taken 16 hours. The speedy transport of the baby allowed the doctors at Surb Astvatsamayr Medical Center to start providing medical treatment quickly and save another life.”
