“The cabinet is small, but all the devices are multifunctional, and therefore the military doctors have enormous opportunities even in this small area. This apparatus is, in fact, a whole complex for emergency care. What is important – he can also monitor the patient’s condition, ”reports Pavel Remnev, correspondent for Zvezda.

There is even a telemedicine device to which you can connect an x-ray, an ultrasound machine and via satellite, in real time to collect consultations with specialists from Russia.

And, of course, humanitarian aid – military medics took drugs for all occasions. From several types of antibiotics to heart medications. Medicines will be given so that people can continue treatment at home.

So far, only three doctors work in the office: a therapist, a surgeon, and a traumatologist.
