BEIJING, Oct. 20 -- Recently, the General Hospital of the PLA Xizang Military Command formed a medical team of 12 medical experts from departments including orthopedics, gastroenterology and psychology to provide medical care for plateau troops.
The medical team traveled more than 2,000 kilometers, and arrived at different units under the Nagqu military sub-command to provide physical examination, medical treatment and other services.
With an average elevation of more than 4,500 meters, Nagqu City is known as the life exclusion zone. The doctors made detailed diagnosis and treatment for the troops, and introduced to them the causes and prevention methods of different diseases.
For those recruits who had never been in plateau areas before, the psychological experts taught them how to relax and adapt to the plateau environment as soon as possible through personal psychological counseling services and team games.
