Bali International Emergency Battle Summit 2022

Bali International Emergency Battle Summit 2022 is an international activity involving doctors and nurses from various countries created by BBM Medindo.

It held with the topic “Time Saving, Life Saving, and Save the World” adopted the Trimatra evacuation concept which have meaning professional evacuation on land, water, and air. We created this seminars to prepare the Bali Medical Tourism and bring world peace in line with the G20 event with the theme Recover Together, Recover Stronger.

The aims of this summit are: To prepare a professional medical team capable of providing protection and assistance from various situations, both land, water and air evacuation.

Disasters, catastrophes, and accidents can happen anytime and anywhere, this phenomenon proves the importance of providing protection and assistance for people who affected by disasters can be protected from death and disability, so that they can survive and live normally as they are.

In the framework of response and recovery, there is a large difference between the terms emergency and disaster. An emergency is an event that can be responded to using the resources available at hand, implying that there is no need to request external assistance. A disaster, on the other hand, is characterized by impacts that overwhelm the capacities of local responders and place demands on resources which are not available locally.

Hence, an event is declared as a “disaster” when there is a need for external assistance to cope with its impacts. A national government declares a state of disaster or national calamity as a way to request international humanitarian assistance and the support of the international community to cope with the impacts of the disaster.

When an emergency or a disaster affect a city or a region, efforts are conducted initially to care for the wounded, to restore lifelines and basic services, and subsequently to restore livelihoods and to reconstruct communities. Such efforts can be structured in three phases:

  • The Response phase, where activities such as search & rescue, rapid damage and needs assessments, and the provision of first aid are conducted; followed by the opening and management of temporary shelters for those left homeless as well as the provision of humanitarian assistance to those affected;
  • The Rehabilitation phase where basic services and lifelines are restored, even on a temporary basis, including the road network and other essential facilities including bridges, airports, ports and helicopter landing sites;
  • The Recovery phase where reconstruction efforts are carried out on the basis of a more precise assessment of damage and destruction of infrastructure. In addition, efforts are conducted to reconstruct infrastructure when needed and to restore the livelihoods of those affected.

Emergency Medical Teams (EMTs) are an important part of the global health workforce. They provide extra surge capacity and expertise to countries in response to disasters and health emergencies. Consisting of doctors, nurses, paramedics and other health professionals from across the world, the teams are rapidly deployed to help patients during disease outbreaks, sudden onset disasters – and now, the war in Ukraine. A key feature of the EMTs is their self-sufficiency – all team members are fully trained, have the skills appropriate for the situation, and bring with them their own equipment and supplies, to avoid adding a burden on the already stretched national health systems of the countries they operate in.

The purpose of the Emergency Medical Teams (EMT) initiative is to improve the timeliness and quality of health services provided by national and international Emergency Medical Teams and enhance the capacity of national health systems in leading the activation and coordination of rapid response capacities in the immediate aftermath of a disaster, outbreak and/or other emergency.

Emergency Medical Teams (EMT), now considered a vital aspect of the global health workforce, are teams of health professionals (doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, paramedics, etc.) that provide direct clinical care to people affected by disasters and conflicts and support local health systems. Any team of health professionals now coming from another country to practice health care in disaster or conflict settings needs to arrive as part of a team, which must be qualified, trained, and bring equipment and supplies to deliver an effective response rather than imposing a burden on the national system. EMTs must strive for self-sufficiency, providing a quality of care that is appropriate for the context, with credentials that meet a minimum acceptable standard.

Traditionally, these teams have been focused on the management of trauma and surgical care, but the response to the Ebola outbreak demonstrated the value in other contexts, such as epidemics and complex emergencies. EMT response can be both National and International from Governments (civil protection and military), Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs), International Humanitarian Networks (International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, Médecins sans Frontières), United Nations Contracted teams, and Private-for-Profit Sector.

The readiness of the medical team added value in an effort to improve the quality of health services, not only for cases of daily emergencies, but also at the same time being prepared when a disaster occurs in Indonesia’s territory. In many cases, the provision of emergency care and the rapid movement of assistance from the scene of an injury to a health care facility can save lives, reduce the incidence of short-term disability and dramatically improve long-term outcomes. However, there is not much of this yet.

The medical emergency team (MET) is a system approach that promotes early and appropriate intervention in the care of critically ill hospital patients. The benefits of the MET in terms of absolute in-patient mortality and cardiac arrest rates are not yet well-defined, although preliminary studies are promising.

The MET does provide a potentially beneficial impact on many other aspects of patient care. These benefits include: (i) facilitating an integrated and coordinated approach to patient care across the hospital, (ii) increasing awareness of at-risk patients, (iii) encouraging early referral of seriously ill patients to clinicians with expertise in critical care and (iv) providing a foundation for quality initiatives for hospital-wide care of the seriously ill. The MET also empowers nursing staff and junior medical staff to call for immediate assistance in cases where they are seriously concerned about a patient, but may not have the experience, knowledge, confidence or skills necessary to manage them appropriately.
