Abstract

 As people walk different paths they require qualified help either when they are in the mountains, by the sea or a lake. Although medical rescue procedures are the same for all patients, the specific environment of coastal area forces rescue services to use different modes of transportation for paramedics and equipment. The aim of this paper is to show the exceptional nature of the work of the Maritime Medical Rescue Team as part of the National Medical Rescue System. Members of this unit are not only qualified paramedics but also specialists in the field of navigation and rescue operations at sea.
