ASSESSMENT OF KNOWLEDGE LEVEL OF PECULIARITIES OF BATTLE SURGICAL TRAUMA. PART II: SYNDROME OF PROLONGED COMPRESSION

EE Belarusian State Medical University
The Republic Of Belarus

Objectives. To evaluate the knowledge level of surgeons who work in the medical establishments of Ministry of Health of the Republic of Belarus concerning the problems of pathogenesis and treatment of the syndrome of the prolonged compression.
Methods. The data of testing results of 270 surgeons of the establishments of Ministry of Health are presented in the article. Surgeons from various regions of the country working in polyclinics, general surgical and specialized departments of hospitals were included in the investigation. The tests included 20 questions concerning the syndrome of the prolonged compression (SPC) (10 questions present the theme Pathogenesis of SPC and 10 Treatment of SPC with 4-5 variants of answers to choose one correct answer).
Results. Surgeons demonstrated the satisfactory knowledge level of the syndrome of the prolonged compression (Me (25%-75%) 11 (9-12)), however, the answers concerning the theme Treatment of SPC testify to the certain lack of knowledge. Lower level of knowledge (statistically significant differences) were shown by the surgeons of the so-called restricted specialization (Mann-Whitney U-test, U=3124, =0,0040). While evaluating the impact of work experience on the number of correct answers, statistically significant differences between the groups were absent (Kruskal-Wallis test, H=39,04, p=0,5580). Surgeons working in polyclinics demonstrated lower knowledge level of the syndrome of the prolonged compression (Kruskal-Wallis test, H=6,27, p=0,0440).
Conclusions. To improve the system of surgeons training to render medical aid in case of emergencies, its thorough analysis is required.
