Medical emergencies ...

Its that time of year ...

Under the care of the Coast Guard Operations Center - Greek Coast Guard, it was transported in the morning hours yesterday, Tuesday, August 1, 2017, with the vessel "AGIOS IOANNIS ROSSOS" N.S. 158, from the port of Skiathos at the port of Volos, 21 years old, who needed immediate hospital care.

The 21-year-old was taken from an ambulance of the EKAB and transferred to the Volos Hospital for care and hospitalization

Later again with care of the Coast Guard Operations Center - Greek Coast Guard, two patients were taken from Skiathos to Volos, who needed immediate hospital care. In particular, a 7-year-old and a 64-year old were transferred to the port of Koukounaries and to the port of Volos and were transferred by EKAB ambulances to the Volos Hospital for Care and hospitalization.


'In the morning, the life of a 21-year-old national who made a holiday on Sporades Island with his company was in serious danger yesterday morning. The young man had fun with his friends in a shop when, for unknown reason, the moments of carefreeness turned into a nightmare and martyrdom. Suddenly she began to squeeze off the pain while she had only consumed three drinks, which raises concerns even for their quality.

However, lately there have been many incidents with young people being transferred to Volos General Hospital having consumed alcohol. Doctors are saying dangerously. In the summer with high temperatures and with the increase in alcohol consumption it is necessary to pay close attention to the consumption of alcoholic beverages.

It all happened around 4 at dawn. While the evening was flowing nicely, and for the moment nothing said that something bad would happen, the 21-year-old showed acute abdominal pain and found himself from one moment to the other at the Health Center of the island to seek help. He had fled poorly from the fun center because of unbearable pains, and a friend of his was with him and accompanied him.

This Health Center not the first time people are asked for help with a similar symptom. However, the 21-year-old really had a severe pain, which did not seem to have faded. According to information, he is reportedly asked about his diet or alcohol, and said he had consumed only alcohol and specifically three drinks.

The incident, reportedly, was considered suspicious with regard to its development. The 21-year-old was judged to be in need of immediate hospital care as the pain continued to be acute. Immediately, with the care of the Coast Guard - Greek Coast Guard, a company was set up to transport it to Volos. Around 21:00 the 21-year-old moved to Volos.

The young man was admitted to hospital at the Volos General Hospital. According to information, it is monitored by the surgical clinic, having undergone pancreatitis. Pancreatitis, reportedly, is caused by several reasons, one of which is alcohol. The young man, however, did not use it inexorably.

Achilopoulos doctors watch the young man conservatively, that is, they expect to see the course of his health by administering the required medication. The 21-year-old, up until yesterday evening, reportedly had not yet recovered from the pain.

In order to treat this inflammation in the pancreas, it takes some time. Doctors continue to follow closely at 21, as pancreatitis can cause serious health problems.
