Sažetak
OBJECTIVE: The goal of this study was to estimate mean time needed for evacuation of wounded persons from the site of injury to the medical institution. METHODS: Database which includes medical and demographical facts for persons treated in Croatian hospitals during the 1991-1995 war in Croatia was used. RESULTS: 61.11% of wounded were evacuated within one hour. Mean evacuation time was 2.26 hours, not varying significantly for civilians and army units. After the person was admitted in the medical institution, chances of survival were 98.36%. CONCLUSION: Since wartime medical system in Croatia depended on army units for transport and on civilian medical institutions for medical procedures and later care, we conclude that integrated model of medical care led to short evacuation times with no significant differences between soldiers and civilians and soldiers on both sides.
