How to save accident victims – An initiative of Inaya Foundation

One of the main project of the Inaya foundation is to save accident victims. Why Inaya is taking initiative because one of the pathitic reason is  in India, the people did not like to save the people who felt in road accident. For giving some times to them. It helps to save ones life.

In April 15 2013, there was an incident held in jaipur.  A man and his young son in Jaipur, injured in a major road accident, sat on the road next to the bodies of his wife and infant daughter for an hour, desperately in need of assistance, but nobody stopped to help. Because of this kind of reasons we take this initiative

 Why should I care?

 You should care because,

  • India has the highest number of road accidents deaths in the world - over 1,35,000 in 2012 alone. On an average, 15 people die and 60 are seriously injured every hour in road accidents in India.
  • Road accidents in India are the leading cause of death in the age group 15-45, the most productive group of our society.
  • Consequently, the annual economic loss is close to 2.5% of India’s annual GDP (Planning Commission of India).
  • 80% of road accident victims in India do not receive any emergency medical care within the critical first hour after an accident. (Study by the Indian Journal of Surgery -2006)
  • According to the Law Commission of India, 50% fatalities can be averted if victims get even basic care on time. That's 70,000 lives!
  • While Police first-responders in most states are untrained to provide any medical aid, bystanders and passers-by choose to remain spectators for fear of getting involved in prolonged legal procedures.
  • With emergency medical services missing or inadequate in most parts of the country, Police and bystanders can play a life-saving role for victims if trained and empowered to do so.

 Save the Golden Hour

Every year nearly 150,000 people die in road accidents in India, the highest number in the world. The first hour of such an emergency, often called the ‘golden hour’ is widely regarded as the most critical for saving lives. The 201 report of the Law Commission had stated: “Doctors point out that at least 50 per cent of the fatalities can be averted if victims are admitted to a hospital within the first one hour.”

According to organisations working in the sphere of trauma care, “If the victim can be stabilised and transported safely to a hospital in this timeframe, his or her chances of survival increase significantly.”

Unfortunately, however, such prompt care is generally not available in the country. According to a study by the Indian Journal of Surgery in 2006, 80 per cent of road accident victims in India do not receive any emergency medical care within this ‘golden hour’.

The primary step to correct this deficiency is to set up a good pre-hospital trauma care system. While this is obviously very important, a World Health Organisation (WHO) report on ‘pre-hospital trauma care systems’ says, “Even the most sophisticated and well-equipped pre-hospital trauma care system can do little if bystanders fail to recognise the seriousness of a situation, call for help, and provide basic care until help arrives.”

First aid is the initial care given to an injured person. This timely care prior to the arrival of the medical help means the difference between life and death. As it is not always possible that proper medical care reaches the victim within an hour. In that case the passerby, onlookers and other people involved can provide the first aid to serious victims. However, improper handling to victims sometime worsens the situation. Though providing proper first aid to an accident victim is not so complicated but one should be aware of the procedures and precautions.

One of the misconceptions about road accidents death is that most of them happen due to sever injury and loss of blood. But reality is that most common cause of death in road accidents due to loss of oxygen supply. Most of the times it happens because airway gets blocked due to great impact and shock to body. Normally it takes less than four minutes for a blocked airway to cause death

 How Inaya works

 The Inaya team has a four-pronged strategy,

  1. Tie up with Red Cross and give awareness to the colleges and general people
  2. Give awareness about the jaipur traffic and accident prone areas
  3. Give awareness to the accident insurances

 For the execution of this strategy we make a separate team with the help of volunteers
