ICAR Recommendation 0033 - AVCR – The Avalanche Victim Resuscitation Card

Date published: 17.10.2015

 

Short summary: In 2015 members of ICAR MedCom published a flowchart for treatment of avalanche victims in accordance to current knowledge and guidelines. This has now become an internationally implemented tool by mountain rescue organistations.

Training and knowledge of what to do when confronted with avalanche victims is of great importance. The algorithm is available as a pocket card. For training purposes, a teaching presentation in different languages has also been designed.
