Forward Aeromedical Evacuation

Many potentially preventable deaths in recent conflicts have occurred in the prehospital phase, of which Forward Aeromedical Evacuation (FAME) casualty movement played a role. To address this, the FAME mission has evolved from rapid and efficient clearing of the battlefield to a relative extension of heretofore-fixed, facilitybased resuscitative capability. Despite these recent advances, there remains convincing evidence that an opportunity to improve upon this record exists through further improvements in airframe, mission tasking, and clinical capabilities.

Saving Life and Limb – an Ethical Dilemma

Life- and limb-saving surgery in a level 1 trauma centre can be carried out with almost unlimited resources in western countries. In the austere environment military surgery is well organised up to the level of a role III facility and for allied forces transfer to a role IV facility results in optimal care for the severely injured. However, when local victims are presented to a role II/III facility transfer to a level 1 trauma centre is not feasable, and the optimal medical care available will be a role III military hospital combined with local facilities. This can lead to adapted medical decision making, taking into account rules of engagement and ethical aspects.
This case presentation demonstrates the potential of life- and limb-saving surgery, including secondary reconstructive procedures.

Continuous Improvement in Healthcare Support to Operations

This paper discusses the emerging concept of Continuous Improvement in Healthcare Support to Operations (CIHSO) recently introduced within NATO. It starts by summarising the developments in NATO policy regarding clinical governance and how this has evolved into CIHSO before examining the operational aspects of CIHSO within the Plan-Refine-Execute (PRE) process of operational planning process. It then looks at the components of a CIHSO system as it might apply to the deployed military healthcare system covering the functions of medical and tactical evacuation, deployed hospital care and executing medical operations. The last stage of PRE should include assessment through the tracking of key performance indicators of the military medical system. The UK and American systems of assurance for the deployed trauma system are reviewed as part of the clinical aspect of CIHSO, as well as consideration some of the emerging issues in the management of CIHSO in a multinational environment.
