ICAR MEDCOM
Alpine Rescue & Mountain Emergency Medicine

The History of ICAR MedCom



“I’m very happy that this commission has survived, considering the difficulties it experienced  becoming a commission of world importance for Mountain Emergency Medicine.

This would not have been possible without the friendship and collaboration of old and present members of the Commission: I wish to express my thanks! Thank you friends.”
