The earthquake of Turkey-Syria has killed tens of thousands of people. Other tens of thousands survived the buildings collapse. Larger number of survivors suffer from deep body injuries called crush injuries. As the name implies these injuries result from blunt trauma to the body by the falling heavy concrete blocks. The squeezed muscle tissues die and release toxins into the blood, which can result in organ failure and death. This a chronic condition that requires weeks to months to treat.
Our job is to help wounds heal faster after crush injuries treatment. With your support, we will provide earthquake survivors with a negative pressure treatment supplies. Each patient will receive a full treatment kit consisting of the negative pressure apparatus (PragmaVAC) and specialized wound dressing for this treatment, that will be used to heal the wound after crush injuries.
