Chamber of Physicians tests new emergency doctor helpline
This will soon be the number to call when you need an emergency medical service, says the chairman of the Myanmar Medical Association. Kyaw Myint Naing said that the number will call any time of dawn and will replace a set of elusive nine-digit numbers. "The new number is more comfortable than the old numbers, which were hard to memorize and little known," he said.
In October 2012 the rescue team in Yangon was put into operation. It provides free pre-clinical and emergency transport for road crashes, catastrophes and man-made catastrophes. Pyidaungsu Hluttaw's spokesman, Thura U Shwe Mann, called on the Ministry of Communications, Post and Telegraphs to assign a three- or four-digit number to the emergency response teams on the advice of the Chamber of Physicians in August.
During the 7th sitting of the House, Thura U Shwe Mann said that the long telephone numbers currently in use make it more difficult for citizens to get help in an emergency. From the MMA headquarters in the municipality of Mingalar Taung Nyunt, the department operates five Ambulance services.
Over the past 12 month, more than 460 patients have been sent to the hospital to help, 66 of whom were wounded in road crashes, Dr Aung Lin said. In addition, he added that accessing the emergency line is crucial, as the emergency services staff also give advice on traumatic situations before the rescue vehicle reaches the scene.
"When we get a call, we first ask what the issue is and what we can do before the paramedic arrives," he said. It has been set up with the assistance of the MMA and the Ayeyarwady Foundation by Max Myanmar.
