In most countries the majority of trauma deaths occurs outside of a hospital. At least 1/3rd of potentially preventable deaths occur prior to arrival at hospital and over half occur during the hospital reception and a resuscitation phase of care.
There is a lack of state organised emergency ambulance services. Persons who shift the victims are usually untrained public.
Basic life support (BLS) is the level of medical care which is used for victims of life-threatening illnesses or injuries until they can be given full medical care at a hospital. It can be provided by trained medical personnel, including emergency medical technicians, paramedics, and by laypersons who have received BLS training. BLS is generally used in the pre-hospital setting, and can be provided without medical equipment.
