We report the case of a non-physician based critical care transport team (registered nurse and paramedic) that successfully initiated prone positioning of a severe acute respiratory distress patient prior to transport to an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation capable teaching hospital. With the increasing use of advanced treatments such as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, prone positioning, and continuous renal replacement therapy for severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), the necessity to transport these patients to specialized hospitals will correspondingly increase...

Donald S MacMillan
A 30-year-old woman, gravida 1, para 2, in her second trimester presented to the local emergency department complaining of an atraumatic headache described as the worst headache of her life. While undergoing evaluation, she became unresponsive with signs of herniation, including a blown pupil and bradycardia. Emergent imaging identified an intracerebral hemorrhage requiring immediate surgical decompression. The patient was transferred by helicopter to tertiary care. Upon arrival, the patient was taken directly to the operating room and underwent a decompressive craniotomy...

OBJECTIVE: United States Air Force air medical evacuation crewmembers (AECMs) are responsible for the safe air medical evacuation of casualties in dynamic environments and must be highly proficient in the C-17, C-130H/J, and KC-135R/T aircraft. Current methods to train AECMs on their aircraft proficiency include computer-based simulation training (CBT) or instructor-based training (IBT) on an actual aircraft. This study compares the aircraft proficiency scores between AECMs who were trained via CBT and IBT methods...

OBJECTIVE: Specialty pediatric transport teams are widely used for pediatric interfacility transport in the United States, with little industry consensus on optimal team configuration. The aim of this study is to assess the quality of the nurse/paramedic specialty team configuration as indirectly measured by the rate of adverse events in these transports. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of pediatric transport data from a hospital-based dedicated pediatric/neonatal transport team was conducted for patients transported in 2016...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare the relative efficacy of immobilization systems in limiting thoracic-lumbar movements. METHODS: A dynamic simulation system was used to reproduce transport-related shocks and vibration, and involuntary movements of the thoracic-lumbar region were measured using 3 immobilization configurations. RESULTS: The vacuum mattress and the long spine board were generally more effective than the cot alone in reducing thoracic-lumbar rotation and flexion/extension...

The fire department in Atami received an emergency call at 6:17 am, with notification of 4 or 5 casualties because of a fire. Because there was only 1 ambulance (O) at the station, an additional ambulance (P) was also requested. Ambulance O transported 2 patients (A and B), and ambulance P transported 2 patients (C and D). These 4 patients were judged to have severe inhalation injuries at the scene and were transported to 2 local hospitals (X and Y). After patients C and D arrived at hospital Y, the medical staff decided to transfer them to the emergency medical service center...

OBJECTIVE: The feasibility and potential of using drones for providing flotation devices in cases of drowning have not yet been assessed. We hypothesize that a drone carrying an inflatable life buoy is a faster way to provide flotation compared with traditional methods. The purpose of this study is to explore the feasibility and efficiency of using a drone for delivering and providing flotation support to conscious simulated drowning victims. METHODS: A simulation study was performed with a simulated drowning victim 100 m from the shore...

OBJECTIVE: Traumatic injury is the leading cause of mortality in children and the most common cause of emergency medical services transport in pediatric populations. We aimed to identify what factors are currently associated with selection for helicopter transport (HEMS) over ground ambulance (GEMS) in a primarily rural state. METHODS: We performed a retrospective case-control study of trauma patients younger than 18 years old reported to the Oklahoma State Trauma Registry between 2005 and 2014 who received direct transport from the scene of injury to a tertiary trauma center within the state...

INTRODUCTION: Nursing stations are the only access point into the health care system for some communities and have limited capabilities and resources. We describe characteristics of patients injured in Northern Ontario who present to nursing stations and require transport by air ambulance. Secondary objectives are to compare interventions performed at nursing stations with those performed by flight paramedics and to identify systemic gaps in trauma care. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed of all injured patients transported by air ambulance from April 1, 2014, to March 31, 2015...

Marcy Phipps, Virginia Conley, William H Constantine
INTRODUCTION: Despite the prevalence of fixed wing medical flights for specialized care and repatriation, few acuity rating scales exist aimed at the prediction of adverse in-flight medical events. An acuity scoring system can provide information to flight crews, allowing for staffing enhancements, protocol modifications, and flight planning, with the aim of improving patient care, outcomes, and preventing losses to providers because of costly diversions. METHODS: Our medical crew developed an acuity scale, which was applied retrospectively to 296 patients transported between January 2016 and March 2017...
