Full disclosure: I work with an x-ray generator company interested in designing a product for use in rapid response units. That makes me 1) totally ignorant of your world, and 2) biased. That said, I'm interested to know from the perspective of those in the field if having access to portable x-ray equipment in the ambulance is needed and if so, whether it should be battery operated or if it could be plugged in to an outlet.
I'm helping a chemical instrument maker who is developing a portable HPLC* system, and I have questions for the EMS community, particularly the rare birds with lab chemistry experience. We are prototyping a very small HPLC instrument. No crazy glass bottles and little tubes, it is all self-contained and quite rugged. We hope the consumables and method of use will be as trouble-free as pretty much any of your life-support gear on the truck, like defibrillator, vent/airway, vascular, etc. A probe will simply be dipped into the sample and then screwed by hand into the device, and a typical elutio
Hello everyone, I am a member of a student team of engineers designing an automatic, portable CPR machine. This device could be positioned in public areas (similar to AEDs) and could be attached to patients, freeing medical personell to simultaneously move patients or tend other injuries. We really need to prioritize design characteristics (portability, adjustability, etc.), but without field medical experience, we're a bit in the dark! Would you be able to give us a hand by ranking the following CPR machine characteristics (in terms of importance) on a scale of 1-10? Thank you so
