Etzer Augustin, Michael Karsy, Jim Bryan, Jian Guan, Richard H Schmidt
Tension pneumocephalus is a rare but dangerous complication of craniotomy, sinus surgery, and traumatic cranial injury. Compared with simple pneumocephalus, which often resolves spontaneously over the course of a few days, tension pneumocephalus tends to increase with ongoing cerebrospinal fluid leak and requires immediate neurosurgical treatment to prevent cerebral herniation. Air transport of patients with tension pneumocephalus for neurosurgical care entails a risk of neurologic worsening because of changes in ambient air pressure with altitude and cabin pressurization...

Carlo Bellini, Simona Serveli, Luigi A, Pietro M, Daniele S, Luca A Ramenghi, Tiziana Cinti, Francesco Campone
The purpose of this article is to describe the long-distance, nonstop intercontinental transport of a severely ill, mechanically ventilated newborn from Shanghai, China, to Genoa, Italy focusing in particular on the clinical and planning difficulties. The aircraft equipment, the assessment and preparation for transport are discussed.

Thomas E Pearson, Meg A Frizzola, Marc A Priest, Monica F Rochman, Curtis D Froehlich
Takotsubo syndrome is rare in pediatric patients but must be considered in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage with pulmonary edema and cardiomyopathy. A systematic, collaborative approach is needed to facilitate emergent transfer of patients where extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (e-CPR) is used as a lifesaving measure. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) use in transport requires preplanning, role delineation, resources, and research efforts to be successful. We present an unusual transport case of successful e-CPR/ECMO treatment of Takotsubo syndrome in a 12-year-old boy with an isolated traumatic intracranial injury, cardiomyopathy with pulmonary edema, and multiple cardiac arrests...

OBJECTIVE: Airway management is a requisite skill set for helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) providers. Cricothyrotomy is a potentially lifesaving skill that is used when other airway maneuvers fail. The authors reviewed all transports by a helicopter program in which cricothyrotomy was performed to assess the frequency, success, and technique. METHODS: This was a retrospective chart review of air medical patient records from an electronic medical record system over a 112-month period...

OBJECTIVE: The "National Standard Requirements for Helicopter Emergency Medicine Services Physicians" gives recommendations on medical requirements for flight physicians. This study describes the level of formal competence, experience, and guideline compliance of Norwegian helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) physicians. METHODS: In May 2013, all HEMS physicians with full-time engagement at Norwegian HEMS bases were invited to participate in a cross-sectional survey using a structured, Web-based questionnaire...

OBJECTIVE: We developed a Neonatal Intubation Checklist for Airlift Northwest. Our goal was to improve the preparation, technical proficiency, and safety of neonatal intubation without increasing the time required to perform the procedure. METHODS: The Neonatal Intubation Checklist, a "call and response" checklist for neonatal intubation, was developed. Its effectiveness was evaluated during a baseline assessment and 2 practice sessions after a checklist orientation...

OBJECTIVE: We retrospectively investigated all of the intoxicated patients who were transported by a doctor helicopter (DH) in eastern Shizuoka between April 2004 and December 2015 to determine when air medical transport was used in cases of toxic exposure. METHODS: Subjects were divided into 2 groups: an outpatient group of subjects who went home after receiving a medical evaluation and treatment and an admission group. RESULTS: The outpatient and admission groups included 17 and 31 subjects, respectively...

OBJECTIVE: The competence, composition, and number of crewmembers have generally been considered to influence the degree of patient care and safety in helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS), but evidence to support the advantages of one crew concept over another is ambiguous; additionally, the benefit of physicians as crewmembers is still highly debated. METHODS: To compare perceived safety in different medical crew models, we surveyed international HEMS medical directors regarding the types of crew compositions their system currently used and their supportive rationales and to evaluate patient and flight safety within their services...
