IAF’s Rapid Response Team Mobile Hospital Saves Devotee at Ram Temple

In a well-timed medical intervention, a mobile hospital operated by the Indian Air Force’s (IAF) rapid response team successfully rescued a devotee who suffered a heart attack during the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ event at the Ram temple in Ayodhya on Monday.

Following the collapse of 65-year-old Ramkrishna Srivastava inside the temple complex, the BHISHM Cube team, led by Wing Commander Manish Gupta, swiftly evacuated him within a minute, providing on-site treatment during the critical golden hour — the first hour after a traumatic injury or medical event, crucial for successful emergency treatment.

Upon initial assessment, Srivastava’s blood pressure was found to have spiked to a dangerously high level of 210/170 mm Hg. The rapid response team administered preliminary treatment on-site. Once the patient’s condition stabilized, he was transferred to the civil hospital for further observation and specialized care.

As part of the Arogya Maitri Disaster Management project, two Cube-BHISHM mobile hospitals were deployed in Ayodhya to enhance medical readiness and response capabilities specifically for the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony. These mobile hospitals are equipped with innovative tools designed to augment disaster response and provide medical support during emergencies.
