ICAR MedCom is an international panel of experts on mountain emergency medicine, consisting of delegates from the ICAR member organisations.
Our work mainly consists of research into and improvement of mountain emergency medicine in a professional mountain rescue environment. Besides this ICAR MedCom's task is to set internationally applicable standards for education and training as well as medical guidelines in mountain rescue medicine. This knowledge shall be transfered to our member organisations and into the world of mountain rescue and mountain emergency medicine.
The ICAR (International Commission for Alpine Rescue) consists of a medical, an air-rescue, an avalanche and a terrestrial commission as well as a sub-commission for dog handlers. The main website and information on the work of the other commissions can be found on www.alpine-rescue.org.
We, the Medical Commission (MEDCOM) provide information on our work on these pages.
