REBOA, ECMO, Thoracotomy? Where should we be focussing our attention in the world of Pre-hospital care?
We were lucky enough to be invited to the London Trauma Conference on the Prehospital Day supported by the Norwegian Air Ambulance Foundation. The day focussed on the areas we can make a real impact to the outcomes of our pre-hospital critical care patients. We grabbed a few minutes time of the following speakers to hear their thoughts;
Intraosseous Access; Jerry Nolan
Pre-hospital Blood products; Jostein Hagemo
Communication under pressure; Dr Stephen Hearn
Pre-hospital Critical Care – what should the near future look like? Dr Stephen Rashford
Have a listen and as always we’d love to hear any thoughts or comments you have on the website and via twitter, and take a look at the references below to draw your own conclusions. We’ll be back in the new year with monthly episodes of Papers of the Month and Roadside to Resus; have a great Christmas and New Year and we’ll speak to you soon!
