The Medical Commission has the goal of developing recommendations and guidelines that deal with the scientific and practical aspects of mountain medicine. This video includes an update by the Medical Commission President Fidel Elsensohn (Austria) as well as reports from Dr. John Ellerton, (England and Wales), on treating pain in the mountains and Dr. Ashish Lohani, (Nepal), on current projects of IKAR in his country. The Avalanche Commission studies snow science and the prevention of avalanche accidents. It involves avalanche professionals, volunteers and dog handlers. This video includes an update by the Avalanche Commission President Dominique Letang (France) as well a report by Marcel Meier (Switzerland) on the work of the Avalanche Dog Handlers special meeting. Next year at Lake Tahoe the focus will be on avalanche issues, with a theme of dealing with multiple burials.
