      Over the past few decades, reports have described favorable results from transfusion of blood products in helicopter EMS (HEMS). Nevertheless, the initiation of a HEMS transfusion program requires consideration of many factors, some unique to each clinical site. This paper describes our experience developing a HEMS transfusion program in an urban non-hospital based HEMS program with a history of long transport times. When considering blood use away from the hospital, major consideration must be given to safe storage and monitoring of blood products both on the ground and while in flight. PRBCs have been shown to generally be resilient to helicopter transit and have a prolonged storage duration. Transfusion of other blood products, such as plasma, involves additional challenges but has been achieved by some HEMS sites. Flight protocols should be developed addressing when and how many blood products should be transported, potentially considering patient factors, scene factors, and the regional availability of blood products during interfacility transport. Quality assurance and documentation protocols must also be developed for blood product use in flight. In our center's experience, we have so far transfused a limited number of patients with generally good results. Patient outcomes are described as below.

  • Evaluation of Intensive Care Unit Ventilators at Altitude

      Introduction Devices may forgo US military air worthiness and safety testing in an attempt to expedite the availability of critical assets such as mechanical ventilators with a waiver for one-time use in extenuating circumstances. Methods We evaluated two Intensive Care Unit (ICU) level ventilators: Drager Evita XL and Puritan Bennett (PB) 840 in an altitude chamber at sea level and altitudes of 8,000 and 16,000 feet. Results Altitude affected delivered tidal volumes (VTs) in volume control mode (VCV) and Pressure Regulated Volume Controlled (PRVC) mode at altitude with the Evita XL but the differences were not considered clinically important with the PB 840. Sixty-seven percent of the VTs were outside the ASTM standard of ± 10% of set VT with the Evita XL at altitude. Conclusion The PB 840 did not deliver VTs that were larger than the ASTM standard up to an altitude of 16,000 feet while the majority of the delivered VTs with the Därger XL were greater than the ASTM standard. This could present a patient safety issue. Caregivers must be aware of the capabilities and limitations of ICU ventilators when utilized in a hypobaric environment in order to provide safe care.

  • Infusion Pump in UH60L/M Flight in Afghanistan: Why Failures Occur

      The ALARIS MSIII Infusion Pump (CareFusion, San Diego, CA) uses 3 separate alarms designed to prevent air emboli: “check air sensor,” “air in lower tubing,” and “air in line.” It is assumed that ambient pressure changes cause air emboli that lead to pump failure although evidence to support this is limited. In this small study, the MSIII proved to be highly resilient and able to maintain function even after large repetitive emboli. Although unproven, it is more likely that these alarms are usually caused by loosening of the intravenous tubing within the pump’s collar. This disjointing of the tubing and the ultrasonic sensor can be perceived as an air embolus leading to severe consequences. If the user attempts the clear air function, the pump will not resume function. Problems such as this may have been related to at least 1 reported patient death. More research is needed to determine the cause of these alarms and determine the exact cause. Patient safety can potentially be improved at all levels including manufacturer modifications and operator training. It seems reasonable that the manufacturer should design a mode (“transport mode”) that allows the pump to function even with air emboli.

      EMS workers typically do not receive training on empathy and compassion, yet these skills are highly valued by patients at their most vulnerable. Alessio and Lidia, from Italy, were on a cross country honeymoon trip when Lidia died suddenly, leaving Alessio alone and frightened. Jason, a flight nurse and emergency room nurse, demonstrated empathy while assisting Alessio through the difficult tasks of returning Lidia's body to Italy, navigating the legal paperwork and providing grief support with a language barrier. In just 72 hours together, a bond was forged that transcended obstacles and led to a friendship and sweet reunion. Professionalism does not preclude the demonstration of empathy and compassion, but enhances the human connection so vital for true “caregivers”.

      Objective Airway management is vitally important in the management of critically ill and injured patients. Current tools to predict the difficult airway have limited application in the emergency airway situation. The aim of this study was to derive a novel difficult airway prediction tool for emergency intubation. Methods A retrospective descriptive analysis was performed in a population of air medical rapid sequence intubation patients requiring more than 1 attempt. The Delphi technique was used to classify the etiology for airway failure as reported by providers as part of a performance improvement database. Etiologies were organized into 6 categories, and an acronym was derived for ease of recall. Results A total of 504 patients were screened, with 63 (12%) patients identified in whom the initial intubation attempt was unsuccessful. All 63 patients (100%) were placed into 1 or more categories (HEAVEN criteria = Hypoxemia, Extremes of size, Anatomic challenges, Vomit/blood/fluid, Exsanguination/anemia, and Neck mobility issues). The database was relatively modest in size, and many patients had more than 1 criterion present, limiting our ability to perform prevalence calculations. Conclusion The HEAVEN criteria represent a set of difficult airway predictors that may be applied prospectively by emergency airway personnel, facilitating airway decision making. These criteria should be validated prospectively.

      Mountain rescue operations often confront crews with extreme weather conditions. Extremely cold temperatures make standard treatment sometimes difficult or even impossible. It is well-known that most manual tasks, including those involved in mountain rescue operations, are slowed by extremely cold weather. To lessen and improve the decrement in performance of emergency medical treatment caused by cold-induced manual impairment and inadequate medical equipment and supplies, simulation training in a weather chamber, which can produce wind and temperatures up to −22°C, was developed. It provides a promising tool to train the management of complex multidisciplinary settings, thus reducing the occurrence of fatal human and technical errors and increasing the safety for both the patient and the mountain emergency medical service crew.

      Objective We aimed to determine if the implementation of Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation (SBAR) training improved the quality of real-life telephone communication. We evaluated interfacility neonatal and pediatric transports performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, and physicians (MDs). Methods This was a quality improvement study performed to evaluate telephone communication before and after SBAR training. Training consisted of lectures, review of audio files, and simulated role-playing. Recorded audio files of real-life transports were evaluated for clarity and content by 3 raters using a standardized scoring tool. Results Ninety-four and ninety-three calls were evaluated before and after the intervention, respectively. The total item scores were higher posttraining (mean ± standard deviation [pre: 15.06 ± 2.60, post: 17.60 ± 2.61], P < .001). Global rating scores ≥ 4 were higher in the posttraining group (pre: 50.0% vs. post: 66.7%; P = .02; odds ratio = 1.43; 95% confidence interval, 1.04-1.97). There was no significant difference in the duration of calls (mean ± SD [pre: 9.29 ± 4.59 minutes, post: 9.70 ± 4.65 minutes). In subgroup analysis, the total item score was significantly improved posttraining for registered nurses and respiratory therapists but not MDs. Conclusion Standardized SBAR training was effective in improving telephone communication by RNs and RTs. The inclusion of SBAR training routinely within the educational curriculum of transport programs can enhance communication.

      Although research on effective teaching methods exists, the application of this information in prehospital medical education is limited. Applying lessons from the realms of cognitive psychology and neuroscience, prehospital educators can enhance their ability to teach. One such concept is the theory of cognitive load. Understanding this theory can reduce the mental strain placed on learners and allow educators to best accomplish long-term learning success, defined as “far transfer” of material to novel contexts. Thus, we propose 5 concise strategies gleaned from cognitive science literature: Tell a story, Time, Technical elements, Think novelly, and Testing and recall (referred to as the “5 T’s”). Each strategy is grounded in research and applicable to medical education. Increased educator awareness and use of these strategies garners the potential to transform prehospital medical education.

      Objective The purpose of this study was to determine if a helicopter flight simulator could provide a useful educational platform by creating experiences similar to those encountered by actual flight nurses. Methods Flight nurse (FN) and non-FN participants completed a simulated emergency scenario in a flight simulator. Physiologic and psychological stress during the simulation was measured using heart rate and perceived stress scores. A questionnaire was then administered to assess the realism of the flight simulator. Results Subjects reported that the overall experience in the flight simulator was comparable with a real helicopter. Sounds, communications, vibrations, and movements in the simulator most approximated those of a real-life helicopter environment. Perceived stress levels of all participants increased significantly from 27 (on a 0-100 scale) before simulation to 51 at the peak of the simulation and declined thereafter to 28 (P < .001). Perceived stress levels of FNs increased significantly from 25 before simulation to 54 at the peak of the simulation and declined thereafter to 30 (P < .001). Perceived stress levels of non-FNs increased significantly from 31 before simulation to 49 at the peak of the simulation and declined thereafter to 25 (P < .001). There were no significant differences in perceived stress levels between FNs and non-FNs before (P = .58), during (P = .63), or after (P = .55) simulation. FNs' heart rates increased significantly from 77 before simulation to 100 at the peak of the simulation and declined thereafter to 72 (P < .001). Conclusion The results of this study suggest that simulation of a critical care scenario in a high-fidelity helicopter flight simulator can provide a realistic helicopter transport experience and create physiologic and psychological stress for participants.

      There is a long history of adopting lessons learned from aviation to improve health care practice. Two of the major practices that have successfully transferred include using a checklist and simulation. Training and simulation technology is currently underdeveloped for nurses and health care providers entering critical care transport. This article describes a pedagogical approach adopted from aviation to develop a new simulation platform and program of research to develop the science of critical care transport nursing education.

      Objective Previous studies have reported that air medical transfer of women in preterm labor can be safely accomplished, without preterm birth occurring; in fact, many women were later discharged without preterm birth occurring. The purpose of this study was to determine if nifedipine, when used as a tocolytic, is effective at facilitating in utero transfer of women in preterm labor in the Top End of the Northern Territory of Australia. Methods This was a retrospective descriptive study over a 3-year period of all women transported in preterm labor between 23 + 6 to 36 + 6 weeks’ gestation of pregnancy (N = 325). Results The average gestation period was 32 + 2 weeks. The mean retrieval time was 6 hours. The mean time of birth from referral was 33 hours. A number of women gave birth to a preterm newborn in a remote health center (17%). There were 3 in-flight preterm births, and 49% of women were discharged without a preterm birth occurring. All women transported by air medical retrieval were admitted to the tertiary hospital for at least 24 hours. Conclusion In this study, nifedipine was used successfully to facilitate in utero transfer in many cases. Nearly half of the women referred were discharged without preterm birth occurring. Findings compare favorably with other published studies.

      This nonhuman simulation study was conducted to determine the decrease in temperature that occurred to 1-L bags of normal saline in a cold environment. The bags were warmed to 39°C and administered through intravenous (IV) tubing at a set flow rate while in a cold environment. The goal was to determine if there was a significant decrease in fluid temperature from the bag to the catheter site. Three trials were completed at temperatures of 0°C, −7°C, −12°C, and 22°C (control). Each bag of normal saline was warmed to 39°C using the SoftSack IV Fluid Warmer (Smithworks Med Inc, Lindale, TX). Fluid was collected and temperatures recorded at 5-minute intervals. The results showed a statistically significant (P = .003) change in temperature between the IV bag and the administration site. The most rapid change occurred within the first 5 minutes. The temperature change was more significant with colder ambient temperatures, with an average of a 28.7°C difference at −7°C and −12°C after 30 minutes. It appears that the most significant heat loss occurs through the IV tubing itself. Therefore, it may be beneficial to insulate the tubing on a trauma patient receiving warmed IV fluids in a cold environment to help prevent hypothermia.
