      Introduction In our trauma system, helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) can be requested to attend a scene call for an injured patient before arrival by land paramedics. Land paramedics can cancel this response if they deem it unnecessary. The purpose of this study is to describe the frequency of canceled HEMS scene calls that were subsequently transferred to 2 trauma centers and to assess for any impact on morbidity and mortality. Methods Probabilistic matching was used to identify canceled HEMS scene call patients who were later transported to 2 trauma centers over a 48-month period. Registry data were used to compare canceled scene call patients with direct from scene patients. Results There were 290 requests for HEMS scene calls, of which 35.2% were canceled. Of those canceled, 24.5% were later transported to our trauma centers. Canceled scene call patients were more likely to be older and to be discharged home from the trauma center without being admitted. Conclusion There is a significant amount of undertriage of patients for whom an HEMS response was canceled and later transported to a trauma center. These patients face similar morbidity and mortality as patients who are brought directly from scene to a trauma center.

      Objective Defining vital sign thresholds has focused on mortality, which may be delayed for hours, days, or weeks after injury. This limits the immediate clinical significance in guiding therapy to avoid arrest. The aim of this study was to identify a systolic blood pressure (SBP) threshold indicating imminent cardiopulmonary arrest. Methods This was a retrospective, observational study analyzing physiological data from air medical patients suffering witnessed arrest. We limited the analysis to a subgroup of adult (> 14 years) patients with hypoperfusion-related arrest. Prearrest SBP values were plotted over time, with arrest defined as “time zero.” Multiple linear regression was used to define a best fit curve to identify an inflection point beyond which arrest was imminent. Results A total of 53 eligible patients were identified; 33 (62%) were trauma victims. A fifth-degree equation showed appropriate goodness of fit (r = −.66, P < .0001). An inflection point was identified at an SBP of 78 mm Hg, with arrest occurring approximately 3 minutes later. Conclusion An inflection point below SBP 80 mm Hg was identified, suggesting a predictable physiological pattern for perfusion-related deterioration. This may help guide therapy to reverse deterioration and prevent arrest.

      Objective Simulation training is an integral part of the training of medical personnel. However, there are limited data on the use of simulation in the training of helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS). Methods In this study, we retrospectively compared the number of orientation flights needed to be released to a full crewmember and the cost of training in an air medical flight academy before and after implementation of a high-fidelity air medical simulator. A total of 13 participants in the air medical services flight academy were analyzed. Four of these participants went through the standard academy. Nine participants went through the standard academy but had additional training using the simulator. Results There was no statistical difference in the number of orientation flights before release from training (P = .35). Also, although there was a trend that the simulator decreased the overall cost of training, there was no significant difference between the groups (P = .16). Conclusion This study found that the use of a high-fidelity simulator when training HEMS personnel does not significantly reduce the number of orientation flights needed to become a full crewmember. There was a trend toward a significant reduction in the total cost of training.

  • Should Helicopters Transport Patients Who Become Sick after a Chemical,

      The local fire department executed a training simulation for chemical and explosive incidents at a large sports facility. In this training simulation, a physician-staffed helicopter arrived at the request of the fire department and landed just outside the cold zone in the parking area. The doctor and nurse of the helicopter were escorted to a red area in the cold zone, which was selected based on the results of postdecontamination triage. After the patients had been treated, they were air medically evacuated to the base hospital. In the Tokyo subway sarin attack in 1995, St Luke's International Hospital admitted over 600 victims. During this incident, 23.2% of medical staff suffered secondary injury from sarin exposure. If air medial crews respond with subsequent postexposure effects during flight, an affected pilot could lose control of the helicopter, resulting in a fatal crash. Based on potential safety concerns for air medical and ground personnel, our recommendation would be that air medical helicopters not be dispatched to sites of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive incidents.

      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. Results During the study period, 22,434 patients were transported, 13 (.057%) of whom underwent cricothyrotomy. The typical patient was a male trauma victim with a mean Glasgow Coma Score of 5 transported from an accident scene with a mean age of 34.3 years. Six (46%) of the patients were alive at 24 hours. All patients (13/100%) received attempted endotracheal intubation; the mean number of attempts per patient was 2. The success rate was 100% with all patients ventilated via cricothyrotomy. Conclusion This study shows cricothyrotomy is a rarely performed skill but that HEMS providers are able to successfully learn the skill with proper training and oversight.

      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. Intubation proficiency was evaluated using a validated assessment tool that included a proficiency score, a global rating scale (GRS) score, and time to perform the procedure. Results Significant improvements in intubation proficiency and time to intubation were noted when teams used the intubation checklist (proficiency score: 29 [7] at baseline vs. 57 [1] with checklist, P < .001; GRS 2 [2, 2.5] at baseline vs. 5 [3, 5] with checklist, P < .001; baseline intubation time 626 [93] seconds vs. 479 (44) seconds with checklist, P < .001). These changes were associated with a large effect on proficiency (ƞ2 = 0.89), GRS (ƞ2 = 0.6), and time to successful intubation (ƞ2 = 0.52). Conclusion The use of the Neonatal Intubation Checklist improved transport team performance during simulated neonatal intubations and decreased the time required to successfully perform the procedure.

      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. We describe a case in which severe symptomatic tension pneumocephalus developed after endoscopic endonasal sinus surgery in an 81-year-old man. The patient lived in a remote area and required air transport for medical care. Pretreatment with oxygen therapy and maintaining the patient in a flat supine position rapidly improved his neurologic status, allowing transportation without incidence. A recommendation was also made to the medical transport team to fly at the lowest possible altitude. Specific precautions may enable safe transport of these critically ill patients for treatment, although further data must be obtained before these can be definitively recommended.

      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. Results Perceived patient and flight safety is higher when HEMS is staffed with a dual medical crew in the cabin. Tradition and scientific evidence are the most common reasons for the choice of medical crew. Most respondents would rather retain their current crew configuration, but some would prefer to add a physician or supplement the physician with an assistant in the cabin. Conclusion Our survey shows a wide variety of medical staffing models in HEMS and indicates that these differences are mainly related to medical competencies and the availability of an assistant in the medical cabin. The responses suggest that differences in medical staffing influence perceived flight and patient safety.

      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.

      Introduction Critical Care Transport teams use various strategies to maintain temperature sensitive drugs and equipment at optimal temperature. The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of current passive refrigeration of temperature sensitive transport medications/equipment. Methods Initially, we performed a retrospective review of transport durations. Subsequently, an experimental paradigm was created using a temperature probe inside of the transport cooler packs utilizing various configurations and initial starting temperatures with high and low “in range” temperature margins of 8°C (max) and 2°C (min). Results The mean round-trip transport time was 2.5 hours and over 15% of transports last longer than 4 hours. At a starting temperature of −3.9°C, the cooler and ice pack maintained “in range” temperatures for 3 hours. When the ice pack starting temperature was −12.9°C, high temperatures excursions weren’t experienced until 6 hours 55 minutes, but initially low excursions fell below for up to 3 hours. iSTAT® cartridges remained within range between 1-4 hours at cooler and ice pack starting temperature of −3.9°C. Conclusion The current system of passive refrigeration does not appear to be sufficient for safely storing medications or point-of-care testing equipment for our transport services. This might reveal a flaw in the existing practices around medication refrigeration in transport.
