OBJECTIVE: This review describes disposition of transported children and identifies contributing factors affecting optimal patient placement. The study describes timing and patient placement indicators in transport patients to identify areas of improvement, re-education, and training. METHODS: A retrospective chart review for transports via our pediatric specialty transport team from January 1, 2012, to December 31, 2014, was performed. Patients were identified by the transport quality assurance performance improvement database, hospital electronic medical records, and transport medical records...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of strategic air medical evacuation (STRAT AE) is to enable the continuity of care and repatriation of wounded soldiers. Between 2001 and 2014, STRAT AEs have been implemented many times over the course of the military engagement in Afghanistan. The purpose of this work was to study the nature of the pathologies and the medicalization of patients most seriously wounded during the PAMIR Operation (Afghanistan). METHODS: This was an epidemiological study conducted retrospectively from January 1, 2001, to December 31, 2014, of the STRAT AEs with the air medical team from the Afghan operating room to France...

OBJECTIVE: Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) emerges as a salvage option in therapy refractory cardiogenic shock but is limited to highly specialized tertiary care centers. Critically ill patients are often too unstable for conventional transport. Mobile ECLS programs for remote implantation and subsequent air or ground-based transport for patient retrieval could solve this dilemma and make full-spectrum advanced cardiac care available to patients in remote hospitals in whom shock otherwise might be fatal...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence, safety (as measured by the incidence of adverse events), and effectiveness (as measured by the incidence of intubations) of ketamine sedation in patients with acute behavioral disturbance (ABD) during air medical retrieval. METHODS: This was a retrospective observational study. Eligible patients were identified by searching the electronic databases of 2 air medical retrieval services in Queensland, Australia, for adult patients with ABD transported between January 1, 2015, and June 30, 2016...

OBJECTIVE: This study sought to assess the impact of a helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) capable of night operations. METHODS: This is a retrospective case review of all night HEMS missions attended by a charity air ambulance service in South East England over a 2-year period (October 1, 2013, to October 1, 2015). RESULTS: During the 2-year trial period, the HEMS service undertook a total of 5,004 missions and attended to 3,728 patients...

OBJECTIVE: Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding is a common medical emergency with significant morbidity and mortality. Many patients are coagulopathic, which may perpetuate bleeding. Remote damage control resuscitation, including early correction of coagulopathy and anemia, may benefit exsanguinating patients with GI bleeding. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of patients with acute GI bleeding who received packed red blood cells (pRBC) and/or plasma during transportation to our institution between 2010 and 2014...

INTRODUCTION: Critical Care Transport teams use various strategies to maintain temperature sensitive drugs and equipment at optimal temperature. The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of current passive refrigeration of temperature sensitive transport medications/equipment. METHODS: Initially, we performed a retrospective review of transport durations. Subsequently, an experimental paradigm was created using a temperature probe inside of the transport cooler packs utilizing various configurations and initial starting temperatures with high and low "in range" temperature margins of 8°C (max) and 2°C (min)...

Increased fracture displacement has previously been described with the application of pelvic circumferential compression devices (PCCDs) in patients with lateral compression-type pelvic fracture. We describe the first reported case of hemodynamic deterioration temporally associated with the prehospital application of a PCCD in a patient with a complex acetabular fracture with medial displacement of the femoral head. Active hemorrhage from a site adjacent to the acetabular fracture was subsequently demonstrated on angiography...

We report on the repatriation of a 28-year old female from Germany, who was involved in a serious bus accident and was transported to the nearest hospital in Oruro, Bolivia. CT scans and x-rays performed in this hospital demonstrated a complete pneumothorax right. Thorax drainage was inserted, which was removed after 5 days. Since the hospital refused to acknowledge the presence of a residual middle-sized pneumothorax on the repatriation day and did not want to insert another tube, the decision was made to repatriate the patient on commercial flight back home to Germany without a thoracic tube...
