Nee, 'n psigoterapeut.

Hehe nou dat ek vir Heimer en Freak moeg gemaak het wil ek graag vir Bradleys dankie se^ :

Almal weet miskien nie maar Bradleys is 'n baie bekwame para-medic met baie ondervinding van motorfiets ongelukke, hy was al die medic by 14 Desert Runs , hy het al met verskei gebreekde bene gewerk  , insluitende femurs en selfs gebreekde nekke . Hy het presies geweet wat om te doen met Charl , pasient stabiliseer, hart en pols gemeet, hy het die femur breek korrek gediagnoseer, korrekte en sterk pyn medisyne gegee,  en het ook die groot moontllikheid geweet van murg in sy bloed en moontlik longe kon lek ,  en dat vir die rede dat Charl nie in 'n back -up voertuig kom weggeneem word nie. Hy moes met ambulaans wat suurstof ens het geneem word. So niemand se^ dat selfs die hoogste gekwalifeseerde doktor meer as Bradleys kon gedoen het nie op die toneel en sonder 'n ambulans nie . En ek wil ook net hierby die geleentheid neem om vir Bradleys dankie te se^ vir wat hy met Charl en sy ander 4/5 patiente van die dag gedoen het met medisyne wat hy met sy eie geld gekoop het . Thanks Bradleys  :thumleft:


thank you apology is about ten posts to late

this is not an apology  ??? and I do not need to apologise. I dare you to find one negative thing I said about Bradleys . I will re -post my so-called offending post and then you tell me where I said anything bad about Bradleys , for whom I have the greatest respect for .

No offence to anyone who was involved in organising the Bash but I think Karoodonkie has a very valid point.  I was supposed to leave Cape Town on Friday afternoon to come to the Bash,  but when my friend's condition worsened I got distracted and it got late, and I then decided to not leave Cape Town by myself at 18h30 .

This was a good decision BUT I was worried that my friends at the Bash would be worried about me and go and look for me.  I could not reach anyone at the Bash , including the owners , due to there being no reception.  I made over 10 telephone calls to neigbouring farms including the Tankwa National Park phones ,but there was no way of contacting anyone at the Bash. Fortunately my friends figured I would not ride in the dark. But it would have been a lot easier if I had a contact number , if one person at the Bash could have had a sat phone esp if I had ridden through and needed help in the middle of nowhere. In my case I have no moan (@ Freak :deal: ;)) but in Charl's case the situation was a lot more serious so I use my case merely to illustrate Karoodonkie's point .

Secondly no offence to anyone at the Bash but for a future Bash it would be a good idea to
find out before the time and put this on the main thread , which are the closest hospital to the Bash , the telephone numbers and the exact procedure to follow to get a seriously injured person to the nearest hospital in the quickest amount of time without stressing out the wives back in Cape Town .

I think Karoodonkie was a tad reactive when he made his point on the Charl thread, but essentially I agree with his points .

Having said that , I cannot compliment Piston Pete, Bradleys and the other back up drivers enough for everything that they did do at the Bash . I just think we can learn from Karoodonkie's very valid points.

Ons praat weer as ek jou in die stof optel - jy sal bid vir `n ambulans!!!
Dink bietjie realisties, tot die manne in die Dakar val hulle vrek -  jy is seker BETER!!!!  >:D  >:D

Hmmm, ek dog die Dakar is 'n wedren?  ???

Se my Karoodonkie, as jy met jou bike langpad ry, vat jy mediese backup saam? Ek is seker sommige ouens is deur trauma die naweek. Maar ons moet 'n tree teruggee en 'n bietjie nugter daaroor dink.



Ag julle hou net van stry en bragg oor joe tough julle is , maar julle weet Karoodonkie is reg , as daar 120 plus bikers bymekaar is sonder 'n telefoon dan is die beslis 'n resep vir moeilikheid, en dit is heeltemal anders as wat dit net jy en jou buddies op 'n ride is.  So hou nou op om cowboys te speel en dink realisties  :deal: ;)

Ek dink by die volgende Bash sal die organiseerders 'n telefoon reel en met die naaste hospitaal reel dat hulle ten minste net weet van die Bash en weet hoe om by die Bash uit te kom  , dit sal stupid wees om dit nie te doen nie.
We vote you to be in charge of it  :thumleft:

Yes with pleasure , at this rate it looks like I am the most sensible person on this thread :mwink: . And I will ask Karooodonkie to help me  ;) >:D

no disrespect to charly650 that is in hospital as i type this.... i really do hope he recovers fully and will be riding with us again shortly....

but sheesh people.... TTFU!!!!!! did we not all sign an indemnity form when we got there? are we not all responsible for our own actions?

we know what this hobby entails.... and well aware of the consequences....

no-one is to blame.... things, bad and good, happen all the time....

that's life!!!

I will not let the organisers of a bash be responsible for my misfortune should /when it happens,all they are doing is giving us a destination and a chance to meet like minded adventure individuals a chance to meet.They help by provide us braai packs and bevies instead of us lugging everything with.
I for one enjoy solo as there is no pressure how long I take to get there and which route.(copy's of my routes at home with wife)
I sometimes have a geocamp and the guys must find me it is up to the individuals to look after themselves and their mates when in a group.if I had to organise medics ect I would also need the law with some of the dogs >:D
example
http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=28428.0

Agreed Drazil !

Shew , this was a long read !

Note to self ,
 Always have the PH no. of the nearest Emergency services in or around the provinces you intend riding through.
And have an ICE Sticker in your Wallet and another on your helmet.

After my accident in Anaysberg last year in June, as I was being re least from Tygerberg Hospital,I noticed my ICE sticker that was stuck on my helmet , stapled to the top of my file.
I was quite impressed that it had gone full circle , From my accident , to the helicopter , to the hospital and back into my hand,



I`m busy making myself and my riding buddies another temp let up presently.

But on your own phones , who actualy has the ph no. of the emergency services in there area ?
I feel that if you go riding with your mates , you are respossible for your self first and should feel resposible for them too.
So get the emergency services no. and put it on your phone.

As for Bradley`s " YOU ROCK "

He has helped me through 2 serious accidents over the past few years and is very controlled and organized on an accident scene

And many thanks to Tuareg for saving my bacon last year.

Anybody with some contacts for Voltarin Ampules and Med kit replenishments , please pm Bradleys , I think its high tim we chip in , me incl.

FOUND THIS ON THE NET

What to do next

Phone ER24 on 084 124

084 124 is the national number which will connect you with ER24s Contact Centre.
It is an emergency line where a call taker will request the following information:
Your telephone number (to remain in contact with you should you be cut off)
Your location (street name and nearest cross road)
The details of what has happened, how many people are injured, whether there is e fire, etc.

This will allow the dispatcher to send the correct personnel from the closest area. In addition the call takers are able to give you telephonic advice as to what to do to help the injureed on the accident scene

Assisting the Injured

If you have a First Aid kit, take it out of your vehicle. Put on the rubber gloves that are inside the first aid kit.

Calm and reassure the people that have been involved in the accident. Make them aware you have called the emergency services and that help is on the way. This may be the only thing AND the most important thing you can do to help someone involved in an accident.

The most important principles when helping an accident victim are the following:
Safety Do not attempt heroics which may potentially jeopardise your own safety. Your safety comes first, before that of the injured. You are of no use to anyone if you become injured while attempting to help others.
If there is any fire/ flames and you have a fire extinguisher, use it and direct the foam/ water at the base of the flames.
Do NOT move the patient or attempt to remove them from the vehicle UNLESS there is an immediate threat to life (e.g. the car is on fire and you are unable to extinguish it). There may be an underlying injury to the neck or spine and unnecessary movement could make this worse.
If the person is unconscious, open the mouth and check there is nothing inside causing obstruction.
Check if the person is breathing.
If the patient is breathing leave them in the position you find them and monitor them regularly.
If the patient is NOT breathing and you have been trained to do so, you may begin CPR and rescue breathing as necessary.
If a person is bleeding heavily from a wound, take any available material e.g. a t-shirt/ gauze from the first aid kit/ a towel/ a blanket/ etc, and place it over the open bleeding wound. Then press tightly applying direct pressure to the wound. Maintain that pressure until the emergency services arrive. Do not stop pressing to check if there is continued bleeding or to look at the wound. This procedure may save a persons life.

I can offer a suggestion wrt contacts during the Bash - forgive if I state the obvious - i have read only a few pages of the fred

At RR everyone gets a landline number (ideally on the farm and even before you arrive) that is manned right through the day - this is on the programme and can be put into your cell but can also go on tank bag.

Depending on how far out the possible rides are - the para-medic can wait on the farm or ride out to where reception is available and wait there. Will then be contacted either directly or through the landline number at the base camp.
