A most gratifying medical balance


Despite the warm temperatures at the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON weekend there were no serious complications. The real,- BERLIN-MARATHON Medical-Team registered in total a figure of 1,843 assistances which included 1,456 in the finish area. 65 people were hospitalised and four people got emergency hospitalisation. But at no point anybody was in a life threatening state. Most assistances were because of minor problems (1,774). This means things like apply a plaster or supply liquid.

„The medical treatment was warranted at every point. We saw that we also master everything in warm weather,“ said Co-Medical Director Lars Brechtel. He also referred to a figure of 200 suspensions from the race after medical checks on the expo BERLIN VITAL.

At the inline skater race there were 481 treatments, but 457 were minor treatments. In total 24 people got hospitalised, with one emergency, but it was harmless as it appeared later. The cooperation with the Berlin Fire brigade and other services was really good on both days.
