MOSCOW, July 9 (Itar-Tass) - More than a thousand athletes and spectators have asked for medical assistance at Universiade- 2013 over the past two days, the press service of the Russian Health Ministry said on Tuesday.
A total of 1,332 incidents, when both athletes and spectators asked for medical assistance, were registered on July 7 and July 8. Seventeen people have been hospitalized, the press service said. Most of the athletes visited doctors because of bruises, strains and scratches, while spectators are complaining of headache, high blood pressure and other indispositions which might be a reaction to a strong heat.
There are 41 medical check points all in all for athletes which are stationed at every facility of the Kazan Universiade. Besides, each of them has a medical check point for the spectators as well. A mobile medical complex of the Federal Medical-biological Agency (FMBA) has been operating to render medical assistance to the members of the Russian national team.
Around 1,500 medical workers had been strained at special courses to give medical support at the Universiada. Medical assistance is also provided by volunteers most of whom are students of medical colleges.
Ambulance and FMBA teams for toxicological and radiation control are on standby at every sports facility and in the Universiade Village. Three medical teams have been patrolling the area of the Universiade facilities round the clock from a helicopter.
An emergency reanimation boat team was set up to render urgent assistance in water areas with the support of the Ministry for Emergency Situations. Six medical organizations of Kazan were employed to render medical assistance under hospital conditions.
"In case of the slightest indisposition or injuries both athletes and spectators may turn to medical workers for help. Medical stations have been operating at all the facilities of Universiade without exception," the press service said, quoting Assistant health minister Anatoly Gulin as saying.
