Outcome after severe head injury treated by an integrated trauma system. (1/99)

OBJECTIVES: To describe outcome after treatment of severe head injury within an integrated trauma system. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of all patients with severe head injury admitted to the Royal London Hospital by the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) between 1991 and 1994. Type of injury was defined on initial computed tomography of the head and outcomes assessed 12 months after injury using the Glasgow outcome score. RESULTS: 6.5% of HEMS patients had long term severe disability (severe disability or persistent vegetative state on the outcome score); 34.5% made a good recovery. CONCLUSIONS: The concern that a large number of severely disabled long term survivors might result as a consequence of this system of trauma management is not confirmed. The case mix of severity of extracranial injuries in these patients makes comparison with other published series difficult, but these data fit the hypothesis that pre-hospital correction of hypoxia and hypotension after head injury improves outcome.  (+info)

Safety of air medical transportation after tissue plasminogen activator administration in acute ischemic stroke. (2/99)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We sought to determine the safety of air medical transport (AMT) of patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) immediately after or during administration of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). Patients with AIS treated with tPA in nonuniversity hospitals frequently need transfer to tertiary care centers that can provide specialized care. AMT is a widely available mode of transport that is crucial in providing expedient and quality health care to critically ill patients while assuring high level of care during transportation. The safety of AMT of patients with AIS after or during administration of tPA has not been examined. METHODS: We performed retrospective chart review of 24 patients with AIS who were treated with intravenous tPA and transferred by helicopter to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania or the University of Cincinnati Hospital. The charts were reviewed for neurological complications, systemic complications, and adherence to the National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) protocol for AIS management. RESULTS: No major neurological or systemic complications occurred. Four patients had hypertension warranting treatment, 3 patients experienced motion sickness, 1 patient developed a transient confusional state, and 1 patient experienced minor systemic bleeding. Four NINDS protocol violations occurred, all related to blood pressure management. CONCLUSIONS: In this small series, AMT of AIS patients after thrombolysis was not associated with any major neurological or systemic complications. Flight crew education on the NINDS AIS protocol is essential in limiting the number of protocol violations. AMT of patients with AIS provides fast and safe access to tertiary centers that can provide state of the art stroke therapy.  (+info)

Helicopter transfer offers a potential benefit to patients with acute stroke. (3/99)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Rapid transport of patients to specialized centers is widely used in the management of myocardial infarction, trauma, and more recently, acute stroke. We evaluated the role of helicopter transportation as it relates to the availability of acute stroke therapies and patients' perceptions of care. METHODS: We reviewed records of all patients transferred to a university hospital within 24 hours of stroke onset from January 1996 to December 1997. Data were collected on demographics, neurological deficit, treatment, and outcome. In addition, a questionnaire was sent to all patients with items about perceived reasons for helicopter transfer, expected and actual treatment, outcome, and overall impression. RESULTS: Helicopter transfer was used for 73 stroke patients. Before transfer, 8 patients (11%) received tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). On arrival, no patient received tPA, 38 patients (52%) were enrolled in acute stroke studies, and 35 patients (48%) received no specific medication. All but 2 patients were managed in a specialized stroke unit. Of the 35 patients who received no specific therapy, 24 (69%) were ineligible for treatment or study enrollment owing to 1 or more exclusion criteria, but rarely (3%) because of time. Of the 45 respondents to the survey, most (84%) were transferred at the suggestion of the physician at the originating hospital because of a possible treatment that was unavailable there. Most patients (93%) believed that there was a benefit from emergent helicopter transfer to a stroke center, although 40% of respondents received no specific therapy. CONCLUSION: Interhospital transfer by air may benefit a substantial number of acute stroke patients by offering potential therapies and intensive management not available elsewhere.  (+info)

Doctor-staffed ambulance helicopters: to what extent can the general practitioner replace the anaesthesiologist? (4/99)

During two years, a rural ambulance helicopter programme saved 41 patients' lives. In 29 of these patients, the decisive medical interventions were carried out by the flight anaesthesiologist before reaching the hospital. We asked an expert panel to assess whether these interventions could have been carried out by a general practitioner (GP). This was the case for 17 (59%) of the 29 patients, while more advances skills, equipment or drugs were needed for 11 (38%). Among these 11, three patients would probably have died without the interventions. We conclude that GPs can manage a majority of life saving missions for a rural ambulance helicopter programme, but the lack of a flight anaesthesiologist may imply substantial health losses for a few patients.  (+info)

A trauma resource allocation model for ambulances and hospitals. (5/99)

OBJECTIVE: To develop a mathematical model for the location of trauma care resources. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Severely injured patients queried from Maryland hospital discharge and vital statistics data. A spatial injury profile was created by parsing these patients into ZIP codes. STUDY DESIGN: The Trauma Resource Allocation Model for Ambulances and Hospitals (TRAMAH) was formulated using integer and heuristic programming. To maximize coverage of severely injured patients, trauma centers and aeromedical depots were simultaneously sited using TRAMAH. A severe injury was considered covered if at least one trauma center was sited within a time standard by ground, or if an aeromedical depot-trauma center pair was sited in such a way that the sum of the flying time from the aeromedical depot to the scene of injury plus the flying time from the scene of injury to the trauma center was within the same time standard. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: From 1992 to 1994, 26,774 severe injuries were considered for coverage. Across Maryland, 94.8 percent of severely injured residents had access to trauma system resources within 30 minutes and 70.3 percent had access within 15 minutes. For the same number of resources as the existing Maryland Trauma System, TRAMAH achieved a coverage objective of 99.97 percent within 30 minutes. This translated into an additional 461 severely injured people covered each year. Holding in place the trauma centers of the existing system, approximately the same percentage of coverage as that of the existing system was achieved within 15 minutes by optimally locating six fewer aeromedical depots. CONCLUSIONS: TRAMAH will allow trauma systems planners to better locate their resources with respect to spatial needs and response times.  (+info)

Thrombolysis in the air. Air-ambulance paramedics flying to remote communities treat patients before hospitalization. (6/99)

PROBLEM ADDRESSED: First Nations* communities in the North have a high prevalence of coronary artery disease and type 2 diabetes and face an increasing incidence of myocardial infarction (MI). Many conditions delay timely administration of thrombolysis, including long times between when patients first experience symptoms and when they present to community nursing stations, delays in air transfers to treating hospitals, uncertainty about when planes are available, and poor flying conditions. OBJECTIVE OF PROGRAM: To develop a program for administration of thrombolysis on the way to hospital by air ambulance paramedics flying to remote communities to provide more rapid thrombolytic therapy to northern patients experiencing acute MIs. COMPONENTS OF PROGRAM: Critical care flight paramedics fly to northern communities from Sioux Lookout, Ont; assess patients; communicate with base hospital physicians; review an exclusion criteria checklist; and administer thrombolytics according to the Sioux Lookout District Health Centre/Base Hospital Policy and Procedure Manual. Patients are then flown to hospitals in Sioux Lookout; Winnipeg, Man; or Thunder Bay, Ont. CONCLUSION: This thrombolysis program is being pilot tested, and further evaluation and development is anticipated.  (+info)

Profile and outcomes of patients transported to an accident and emergency department by helicopter: prospective case series. (7/99)

OBJECTIVES: To study the profile of airlifted patients and their outcomes after arrival at the hospital, and to evaluate the appropriateness of their prehospital care and the decision to use aeromedical evacuation. DESIGN: Prospective case series. SETTING: Accident and emergency department of a public hospital, Hong Kong. PATIENTS: All patients transported to the department by a helicopter of the Government Flying Service from June 1998 through November 1998. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Demographic data, sources and locations of referral, clinical features, triage category, interventions used, and outcome. RESULTS: A total of 186 patients were transferred by helicopter during the 6-month study period. The 101 patients who had been transferred from a rural hospital or clinic were older (mean age, 50 years versus 35 years), comprised more females (55% versus 26%), had a higher overall mortality rate (19.8% versus 3.6%), and had a higher hospital admission rate (91.1% versus 37.6%) than the 85 patients who had been airlifted from the scene of an emergency. Neurological disorders were the most common presentation among interfacility transfers (21.8%). Among the 85 scene transfers, limb injuries (32.1%) and heat illnesses (24.4%) were the most common reasons for helicopter transport. Most interfacility transfers were appropriate, but 34.1% of patients who had been transferred from the scene of the emergency were later discharged and 21.1% refused consultation. CONCLUSIONS: Scene and interfacility transfers by helicopter have different patient profiles, and a substantial proportion of scene transfers may be inappropriate. Guidelines such as field triage and helicopter dispatch criteria need to be established.  (+info)

Treatment of refractory unstable angina in geographically isolated areas without cardiac surgery. Invasive versus conservative strategy (TRUCS study). (8/99)

AIMS: We compared invasive (on-site coronary angioplasty or emergency air-ambulance transfer for bypass grafting surgery) vs conservative (persistent medical treatment) strategies in the management of refractory unstable angina in geographically isolated hospitals without cardiac surgical facilities. METHODS AND RESULTS: One hundred and forty eight randomized patients with refractory unstable angina were compared on an intention-to-treat basis. Outcomes (invasive vs conservative): (a) in hospital: stabilization (96% vs 43%, P=0.0001), non-fatal myocardial infarction (2.6% vs 4.2%, P=ns), death (1.3% vs 8.3%, P=0.046), combined outcome (3.9% vs 12.5%, P=0.053) and hospitalization (11.4+/-6.3 vs 12.4+/-8.0 days, P=ns). (b) 30-days follow-up: non-fatal myocardial infarction (2.6% vs 4.2%, P=ns), death (2.6% vs 11.1%, P=0.030) and combined outcome (5.3% vs 15.3%, P=0.031). (c) 12 month follow-up: non-fatal myocardial infarction (3. 9% vs 4.2%, P=ns), death (3.9% vs 12.5%, P=0.053), combined outcome (7.9% vs 16.7%, P=ns), re-admissions for unstable angina: (17.1% vs 23.6%, P=ns), late coronary angioplasty: (15.8% vs 11.1%, P=ns) and (d) late coronary bypass grafting: (7.9% vs 12.5%, P=ns). CONCLUSION: Invasive treatment of patients with refractory angina in remote areas without surgical back-up results in significant in-hospital stabilization and a reduction in major events in-hospital and at 30 days. Coronary angioplasty in stand-alone units and air-transfer of these patients seems safe.  (+info)

Introduction: Inter-hospital transfer of ischemic stroke patients by Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) is common in rural states. The administration of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) is often initiated at the outside hospital and continues during HEMS (drip and ship). Due to the unstable nature of rtPA after reconstitution in conjunction with strong, low frequency vibrations present during HEMS, there is potential for the physical integrity and thrombolytic activity of rtPA to be compromised during inter-hospital transfer.. Hypothesis: Air ambulance transfer alters the antigen integrity of rtPA in ischemic stroke patients.. Methods: Prospective cohort study of acute ischemic stroke patients receiving rtPA during air ambulance transfer to a comprehensive stroke center (CSC) (intervention group) compared to patients who presented directly to our CSC Emergency Department (control group). The duration of each flight was recorded to control for degree of exposure. To ...

Background: In the isolated and dynamic health-care setting of critical care air ambulance transport, the quality of clinical care is strongly influenced by non-technical skills such as anticipating, recognising and understanding, decision making, and teamwork. However there are no published reports identifying or applying a non-technical skills framework specific to an intensive care air ambulance setting. The objective of this study was to adapt and evaluate a non-technical skills rating framework for the air ambulance clinical environment.. Methods: In the first phase of the project the anaesthetists non-technical skills (ANTS) framework was adapted to the air ambulance setting, using data collected directly from clinician groups, published literature, and field observation. In the second phase experienced and inexperienced inter-hospital transport clinicians completed a simulated critical care air transport scenario, and their non-technical skills performance was independently rated by two ...

Last week, there was a news story about emergency vehicles for which queue modelling is relevant. In the United Kingdom, there are about 30 air ambulances, mostly helicopters, which provide rapid transport of patients from their point of need to a hospital. As my house is close to the hospital in Exeter, we frequently see one of the two air ambulances that fly in our county of Devon from our garden. I am not sufficiently familiar with the air ambulances from the neighbouring counties to be able to recognise them, but I know that there are times when "Our" ambulances will cross the border and vice versa, so the Dorset ambulance sometimes comes to Exeter, and - rarely - that from Cornwall flies here, though that generally only visits the west and the north of Devon. So, essentially, the emergency service in Devon might be modelled as a queue with two servers. Or, you could model the emergency service in Dorset, Devon and Cornwall as a queue with four servers. However, as soon as you allow the ...

In the early 1980s, studies showed about half the deaths due to trauma could have been prevented if patients had received critical care sooner. When Dr. Greg Powell lost a young mother who was being transported from a rural area to Calgary by ground ambulance, he decided something had to change. Thats when he founded STARS.. Less than half the population of Western Canada lives in major urban centres and has access to critical care within minutes. For the other half such access is measured in hours. That can mean the difference between life and death; full recovery or permanent damage.. With STARS, those living in rural communities, working in remote areas, travelling on highways or being transported from community hospitals to major medical centres, receive the very best in critical care in helicopters staffed and outfitted as mobile ICUs.. ...

In Hong Kong, all air ambulance service is provided by the Government Flying Service; a joint service providing aviation support to all departments of the government.[6] The service operates from two bases (the current and former Hong Kong airports, Hong Kong International Airport and Kai Tak Airport. While the service employs a number of different types of aircraft, those used for both air ambulance service and search and rescue service are primarily of the Puma and Super-Puma types. The physical terrain is such that most level areas are densely populated and heavily built up. As a result, air ambulance operations usually involve those communities which are isolated either in the mountains, or on offshore islands, with an occasional rescue at sea or medevac flight from a ship. It used to have ambulance crew with basic life support equipment from Hong Kong Fire Service Department (HKFSD) abroad when mission needed. Under the "Air Medical Officer" (AMO) programme, helicopters are equipped with ...
EMS consists of hospital emergency departments and emergency medical services, including Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (Polish Medical Air Rescue), where health services are provided only to persons whose life or health is seriously endangered.. Trauma centers and hospitals units specializing in the provision of health services cooperate closely with EMS . Also public services are established to cooperate with EMS and provide assistance to persons in a state of sudden health risks, in particular: Fire Brigade, Police, Volunteer Search and Rescue teams/organizations (specialized in mountain or water rescue) and other organizations that perform rescue operations as part of their statutory tasks. The National Emergency Medical Services is supervised by the Minister of Health. The planning, organizing, coordinating and supervising of the system at the regional level belongs to the voivodes.. Please remember if you notice a person in a state of sudden health risk or you are witness to the ...
Purpose: To standardize the care of acute stroke patients who receive IV tPA being transported by ground EMS from a treating hospital to a stroke center.. Background: National consensus guidelines exist for the hospital management of patients receiving IV tPA for acute ischemic stroke. Such patients require close monitoring and management to minimize risk of clinical deterioration. Although patients are often emergently transported from local hospitals to a stroke center, there are no treatment specific national guidelines for managing such patients enroute. As a result, there is a need to develop and implement a standardized approach to guide EMS personnel, particularly in states like Georgia where the public health burden of stroke is high.. Methods: In 2012, the "Georgia EMS Interfacility Ground Transport Protocol for Patients during/after IV tPA Administration for Acute Ischemic Stroke" was developed in conjunction with the Georgia Coverdell Acute Stroke Registry, the Georgia State Office of ...
Results. Seven percent of all patients received a TT (5% unilateral, 2% bilateral). Ninety-seven percent of all patients with a TT were endotracheally intubated. The success rate for correctly placed chest tubes was 78%. Twenty-two percent of the chest tubes were misplaced (i.e., too far in the chest, twisted, or bent); half of those had to be corrected, with one needing to be replaced. There were no statistical differences in the frequency of Monaldi or Bülau positions, or the frequency of left or right chest TT. In addition, the two positions did not differ in misplacement rates or the need for intervention. Helicopter emergency medical services physicians used the Monaldi position significantly more frequently than the Bülau position. In-hospital physicians performing interhospital transfer used the Bülau position significantly more frequently, whereas ground emergency medical physicians had a more balanced relationship between the two positions. Tube thoracostomy had no influence on ...
The study, published online ahead of print in Annals of Emergency Medicine, was led by assistant professor Jason McMullan, MD. In a multicenter, retrospective chart review, McMullan found that a majority of STEMI heart attack patients transferred by a hospital-based helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) in 2007 did not receive treatment within the time period recommended by national physician groups.. For patients with a ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), a type of heart caused by a sudden, total blockage of a coronary artery, the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiologists have set a goal of 30 minutes to open the artery if a clot-busting drug is given (a treatment known as fibrinolysis) or 90 minutes if a stent is to be placed in the artery (percutaneous coronary intervention, or PCI). The length of time from the patients arrival at the emergency department to treatment by PCI is commonly referred to as "door to balloon" time.. "The goal of treating ...

Introduction: Rapid Sequence Induction of anaesthesia (RSI) is the recommended method to facilitate emergency tracheal intubation in trauma patients. In emergency situations, a simple and standardised RSI protocol may improve the safety and effectiveness of the procedure. A crucial component of developing a standardised protocol is the selection of induction agents. The aim of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of a traditional RSI protocol using etomidate and suxamethonium with a modified RSI protocol using fentanyl, ketamine and rocuronium. Methods: We performed a comparative cohort study of major trauma patients undergoing pre-hospital RSI by a physician-led Helicopter Emergency Medical Service. Group 1 underwent RSI using etomidate and suxamethonium and Group 2 underwent RSI using fentanyl, ketamine and rocuronium. Apart from the induction agents, the RSI protocol was identical in both groups. Outcomes measured included laryngoscopy view, intubation success, haemodynamic ...
Introduction: Research within the European Union has shown international visitors to have a higher injury mortality than residents. Traffic accidents are the leading cause of injury-related death among overseas visitors and evidence suggests overseas visitors are at a greater risk of being involved in road traffic accidents than the resident population. Little information looks specifically at pedestrian injuries to overseas visitors. Pedestrian deaths account for 21% of all UK road deaths.. Methods: A retrospective database review of London helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) missions was undertaken to examine the number and type of missions to overseas visitors, specifically examining pedestrian incidents.. Results: Of 121 missions to overseas visitors, 74 (61%) involved the visitor as a pedestrian struck by a vehicle. Thirty-five pedestrians (47%) were struck by a bus and 20 by a car (27%). Fourteen patients (19%) had an initial Glasgow coma scale score of 3-8, suggesting severe head ...

Patients who are intubated (breathing tube in windpipe) are often transported by air ambulance. Changes in atmospheric pressure during flight may cause pressure increases in the air-filled cuff holding the tube in the windpipe. Studies show that more than half the patients had potentially harmful pressures in the cuff during flight. High pressures lead to complications, such as injury to the windpipe. To avoid injury, cuff pressures must be kept at a safe level. There are many ways to avoid unsafe cuff pressures. One is to inflate the cuff with sterile fluid instead of air. Fluids are not subject to changes in atmospheric pressure. Using fluid, instead of air, in the cuff causes less pressure increases and less windpipe injury. The use and safety profile of this during transport by air ambulance has not been studied. This study compares tracheal tube cuff pressures, filled with air or fluid, at routine flying altitudes during patient transports by air ambulance ...
News Article. April 20, 2016. Beckers Hospital CFO. The air-ambulance industry can save lives, but it often spells financial demise for patients.. An article in the Billings Gazette follows the story of Montana resident Jason Ebert who was saddled with a $27,000 air ambulance bill, shedding light on the issue many states currently face. According to the report, air ambulance prices are largely unregulated because the aircrafts fall under the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978. This act protects airline industry fares, routes and services from state interference, with the goal of increasing competition and reducing rates.. However, in the air ambulance sector, competition actually increases costs, according to the report. The high fixed costs of operating the aircraft and staffing them with trained medical providers are difficult to offset when a company is competing for a small number of flights.. North Dakota passed legislation last year to attempt to regulate the industry, but a federal judge ...
Mercy Flight Western New York has several aircraft available waiting to respond if needed. Studies have shown that with critically ill or injured patients, the reduction in out of hospital time leads to better patient outcomes. We rely on our police, fire, EMS and hospital partners to provide early notification of our aircraft to benefit the patient by having an aircraft ready to go and on the way. Our helicopters should be used when it will significantly reduce the transport time of critically ill or injured patients to a specialty care center. Additionally, our helicopters should be used if the specialized services offered by the Mercy Flight medical team would benefit the patient prior to arrival at the destination facility. The added benefit of using a helicopter is the point-to-point aspect versus ground transport which can be delayed due to traffic, road construction etc. Unfortunately, weather plays a large factor in the availability of a helicopter. As weather conditions at the scene or ...

Paradigm Paralysis: Doing More With Less In The Transport Helicopter Community CSC 1993 SUBJECT Area - Aviation EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Title: Paradigm Paralysis: Doing More with Less in the Transport Helicopter Community Author: Major Christopher E. OConnor, United States Marine Corps. Thesis: Operating a transport helicopter squadron below 100 percent of its authorized table of organization (T/O) manpower strength is an inefficient, labor intensive way of doing business. The Marine Corps must change its staffing policies and incorporate innovative new ideas to rectify manpower shortages. Background: The Marine Corps has never manned its transport helicopter squadrons at 100 percent T/O. The Marine Corps created staffing goals and manning levels in an attempt to account for personnel shortages; however, these procedures were marginal at best and did not correct the problem. Transport helicopter squadrons still do not have enough personnel, and must rely on enlisted Marines to perform extra duties in ...
A picture of a U.S. Army helicopter and pilot, taken at Ft. Wolters Army Base before the close of the fort in 1974. Ft. Wolters was home to a primary helicopter flight training school during the Vietnam War. In a war that featured helicopters, 70% of the helicopter pilots in the Vietnamese War received all or part of their training at Ft. Wolters in Mineral Wells. The Helicopter Pilots Association is the primary sponsor of the National Viet Nam War Museum being built near the airport in Mineral Wells. The museum currently contains a half-size replica of the Viet Nam War Memorial Wall in Washington, D. C., and a beautiful Meditation Garden.

Life is strange isnt it; from one day to the next you dont know what will happen. Sometimes it seems that no matter how hard we plan and try to think ahead, life just has a way of throwing you a curved ball that changes your life forever.. Saturday 28th August 2010, was a sunny bank holiday weekend and Callum my 16 year old son had gone on a climbing trip with his dad to Highcliff Nab in Guisborough, a local beauty spot. Sadly within half an hour of them arriving - Callum had fallen 70 feet from the top of the cliff - landing on his head.. 26 people went to his aid from The Great North Air Ambulance; Cleveland Search and Rescue Team, the North East Ambulance Service and Cleveland Police. After an initial assessment of Callums injuries by the air ambulance doctor, he directed 16 people who were all working on different parts of Callums badly injured body to treat his multiple injuries. It took them an hour to stabilise Callum before they could carry him back up to the top of the cliff where the ...

My name is Jennifer Blatz and I have been working as a Chief Administrative Officer in rural Manitoba for just over six years now, and have been employed for the RM of Ste. Anne for five of these years. I absolutely love my job and all of the different types of mandates that come along with it.. Keeping our fire departments managed on an administrative level, it is so obvious to our regional municipalities that STARS has become indispensable to our first responders when attending motor vehicle accidents, when transport is needed to a major trauma centre or when faced with recreational accidents in areas that are too isolated for our vehicles to access. Just as importantly, having lived in farming communities all my life, STARS attendance at farm related accidents has been vital. STARS critical care teams have responded to our area 282 times since 2010.. In July 2016, representatives of STARS attended one of our Council meetings to discuss the STARS organization and the types of services they ...

In 2016, the NHS has received over 80,000 alcohol related, 999 emergency calls which requires about 7% of staff to deal with these emergencies. On the weekends, this number can be even higher with 1 in every 5 calls being from someone who has had too much to drink. Aside from the primary health concerns for the individual who has drunk too much, it also draws away limited resources from those who may need it more.. Binge drinking can not only end in a messy night out with cuts, scraps and bruises but also lead to more serious health problems such as liver failure and even death. However there are simple steps that you can take to ensure that you enjoy the night out safely.. ...

Patients who are potentially unsuitable for helicopter transport are identified by abnormal physiological variables, either alone or in combination, in the adverse clinical signs box of the transport algorithm (figs 1 and 2). These findings correlate with the potential for life threatening injury pattern, airway obstruction, failure of oxygenation and ventilation, and exsanguination either at the scene or during transport to hospital. Other authors have validated that derangements of respiratory rate, pulse rate, blood pressure, and conscious level, either alone or in combination, accurately predict serious injury patterns, and justify field triage directly to regional level 1 trauma centres in the USA.18 Reduction in level of consciousness to an AVPU score of P or less predicted an injury severity score (ISS) of ,15 with a sensitivity of 93% and a specificity of 85%.18 Similar physiological observations used to derive the prehospital index have been used to justify and validate timely ...

The Helicopter Interdiction Tactical Squadron (HITRON) is an armed U.S. Coast Guard helicopter squadron specializing in Airborne Use of Force (AUF) and drug-interdiction missions. It is based at Cecil Field in Jacksonville, Florida. HITRON flew armed Agusta MH-68A Stingray helicopters from December 2000 until February 2008. At that time, HITRON took on the mantle of the Atlantic Area Deployment Center, and began flying the MH-65C Dolphin. The unit was formally commissioned in 1998 and as of December 2011 it had interdicted 209 vessels resulting in seizures totalling over $10 billion USD. When conducting counter drug operations, HITRON aircrews will deploy aboard Coast Guard cutters for thirty- to sixty-day deployments. While on deployment, go-fast boats are searched for not only by the HITRON helicopter but also by shore based maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) such as the Coast Guard HC-130J Hercules. If an MPA locates a go-fast, the HITRON crew will launch from the cutter to intercept it. The crew ...

At this impressive rate, to lower the helicopter just 10 meters from its initial position, the rope would have to be 10 m/s * (10 m / 0.1 m/s) = 1000 meters long...1 kilometer (more than half a mile), lol. Probably not going to happen. And even then, the helicopter will still be high in the air, so this method wont work in bringing the helicopter to the ground...only decreasing its altitude a bit, since the character has to climb up the rope a much greater distance than the helicopter comes down ...
GAO reviewed the Army Helicopter Improvement Program (AHIP) to assist Congress in its review of the fiscal year 1984 budget.. If successfully developed, the AHIP will provide a capability to overcome major deficiencies in existing scout helicopters. However, the programs cost growth has been dramatic: its cost has more than doubled in less than 3 years. The program is still in an early stage of development, and the helicopters capabilities have not been tested or demonstrated. Coupled with other uncertainties that exist in the program, some additional cost increases can be anticipated. GAO concluded that how well the Army can control the programs cost will likely determine its future, because past Army efforts to develop a new scout helicopter were halted early in development due to congressional displeasure with its high costs.. ...
Above: The Tok River Fire as the helicopter landed. The helicopter is in the brown grassy area near the bottom of the photo.. The Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Center has released a report they call a "Rapid Lesson Sharing" about a close call that happened in Alaska late in the afternoon on July 14, 2016.. The report does not clearly, unequivocally, and in detail describe how and why the wind changed and affected the direction of spread, but there are two clues. The "Event Type" is "Thunderstorm Influence on IA [initial attack]". And, the "Lessons" section has tips about attacking a fire when thunderstorms are in the area.. In this incident, a helicopter ferried an Incident Commander and three firefighters to a new fire. As they approached and made several orbits over the new start to size it up they noticed a thunderstorm in the general area. The fire was 10 to 15 acres and burning in black spruce with 50 to 75-foot flames at the head. The pilot and the helicopter manager on board selected a ...

Using a lower Kv motor provides a higher torque constant (Kt). They are, after all, inversely proportional. At the lower rpm that I enjoy, the average current is drastically reduced, so Io comes into play. Io will go slightly higher, along with Kv, so if we want a low Io (unloaded current), we want a low Kv. A motor requires 5 amps of current just to run, for example. Lets also say that you want ballistic power and have the helicopter configured to deplete the battery in three minutes and its a standard 700-size helicopter with 12S 5,000 mAh LiPo batteries. Three minutes would be 80 amps average current to use 4,000 mAh (its common to only use 80% of the pack). Five amps are used to turn the motor, so you have 75 amps to do work. Six percent of the energy consumed is not used to fly the helicopter.. Now lets say that you want a 12-minute flight time, so you gear differently and drop the rpm to allow the motor to only draw a 20-amp average. Five amps are used to spin the motor and 15 are used ...

By The Portales News-Tribune, N.M. Jun. 18--Roosevelt General Hospital Director James DAgostino told board members Tuesday an AreoCare helicopter was now stationed in Clovis to handle emergency patient transfers to Lubbock. Featuring twin engines, the MD 902 helicopter flies at about 145 mph, allowing a patient to be transported to Lubbock in 35 minutes, DAgostino said. The helicopter also features onboard medical equipment that can be used to monitor and treat patients. "It is very beneficial for the hospital and residents of Portales to have the medevac helicopter stationed so closely," DAgostino said. The MD 902 helicopter is being housed at a hanger located at the Clovis Municipal Airport. A helicopter stationed at RGH during the day was moved back to Lubbock in March after another AeroCare helicopter was grounded for repairs, according Andy Faletto, director of the Lubbock branch of AeroCare. Other business before the board included: --The board approved a medical staff bylaws revision ...
By David Poulson. One in three Americans lives in rural areas where getting urgent medical care for events like cardiac emergencies, stroke and trauma are extremely difficult due to the distance of appropriate medical facilities. Since 1990, over 22% of Americas hospitals have closed.. Getting timely, appropriate medical care is deadly serious. Trauma doctors refer to the first hour after a traumatic injury as the "Golden Hour" because during this critical window, the right kind of medical care can lead to vastly better outcomes with regard to saving lives and preserving quality of life. Eighty-five million Americans who live more than one hour from a hospital with a Level 1 or Level 2 trauma center by ground transport can only access these centers within the Golden Hour because of air medical services.

The U.S. Marine Corps has demonstrated an autonomous technology on a UH-1 Huey military helicopter at Marine Corps Base in Quantico, Virginia.. The flight demonstration was part of the Autonomous Aerial Cargo/Utility System partnership between the Office of Naval Research and Aurora Flight Sciences, ONR said Wednesday.. "With AACUS, an unmanned helicopter takes the supplies from the base, picks out the optimal route and best landing site closest to the warfighters, lands, and returns to base once the resupply is complete; all with the single touch of a handheld tablet," said ONR Executive Director Walter Jones.. AACUS consists of integrated software and sensor systems built to detect and avoid external obstacles during autonomous flight.. The system is remotely controlled through a handheld tablet device and designed as a possible alternative to high-risk convoy or manned aircraft operations.. ...
The hell with that. First of all, we pay for those helicopters. The least you can do is give us a heads-up so we can stand outside and watch our money. Secondly, why dont you flyboys - and I admire your derring-do - go someplace where it might make more sense to scare the hell out of everybody? Like Chicago. Maybe four or five nights of training over Chicago would cut the death rate. The gangsters would be too terrified to shoot anybody. Or, if its privacy youre after, fly over Detroit. Nobody there. Plenty of empty, tall buildings downtown. I started to get the pattern, and by the third time they flew over Monday night I saw them - sleek, black, minimally illuminated. Wow. They are impressive. I am happy to have helped pay for them. But why are we the guinea pigs? These exercises have to be incredibly dangerous. Large, fast, essentially blacked-out helicopters are flying over a packed urban center, between downtown St. Paul buildings where people live. City council member Dave Thune and I ...

Multi-Body System Simulation combined with System Identification was developed as a method for determining the stability characteristics of a human powered helicopter(HPH) configurations. HPH stability remains a key component for meeting competition requirements, but has not been properly treated. Traditional helicopter dynamic analysis is not suited to the HPH due to its low rotation speeds and light weight. Multi-Body System Simulation is able to generate dynamic response data for any HPH configuration. System identification and linear stability theory are used to determine the stability characteristics from the dynamic response. This thesis focuses on the method development and doesnt present any HPH analysis results.

Robust control has not been used as widely as it could because modelling tools have not advanced as far as analysis and synthesis tools. This becomes readily apparent when applying robust control theory to real problems. With this in mind, an experimental platform was designed and built to study the application of robust control. This platform consists of a real-time computer and a radio-controlled model helicopter mounted on a six degree-of-freedom stand. Experimental systems provide the opportunity not only to verify the applicability of new control theory but also to highlight potential deficiencies.. Traditional system identification and control techniques were used to construct hover controllers for the model helicopter. These techniques are not suitable for the construction of robust models for a system of this complexity. In particular, there was no systematic way to augment nominal identified models with uncertainty suitable for the construction of robust controllers.. To address this ...

Since I have a long weekend I decided to pass by Extreme Hobby and pick up a small indoor helicopter. I played with it in their store a while back and since then its always been on my mind. Unlike the crappy toy helicopters you find at regular toy stores, this is a proper tiny hobby grade helicopter. It comes with a 4-channel 2.4Ghz digital transmitter with four AA batteries for it, the actual micro helicopter and a 1-cell LiPo battery.. The helicopter is very tiny which makes it perfect for flying around in the living room. Helicopters in general are difficult to fly and so this micro helicopter for me is a good way to get into them. As a beginner its a bit mind numbing still trying to fly this thing around. The left stick on the transmitter controls the throttle and the direction the helicopter is facing. The right stick controls the flight direction, front back left and right. You charge the helicopters battery in the actual receiver, there is a slot in the back where you can insert the LiPo ...

... CSC 1993 SUBJECT AREA - Aviation EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Title: Replacing the Aging CH-46 Author: Major Gary L. Willison, United States Marine Corps Thesis: The Marine Corps currently recognizes that CH-46 helicopters are no longer capable of conducting the medium lift mission. The Marine Corps must replace these helicopters with a fleet of aircraft capable of conducting the mission for the next 25 years. Background: Marine CH-46 helicopters are now technically obsolete and are rapidly approaching the end of service life. Outdated systems and growing maintenance concerns emphasize the need to replace these helicopters with aircraft capable of performing medium lift missions well into the 21st century. Inadequate payload, insufficient fuel endurance, and primitive navigation and communication systems limit the aircrafts capabilities. The cockpit lighting system is incompatible with night vision goggles. To correct the medium lift problem the Marine Corps is exploring two ...
