Making decisions under pressure can be difficult, especially when lives are on the line.
During a high tension emergency response call, paramedics are required to make immediate decisions that can dramatically impact the care a patient receives. Assessments are made on the type of specialist treatment required, and whether treatment is only available at specialist hospitals. These factors all need to be considered while administering necessary first aid and transporting a patient for further treatment.
“Paramedics work in a high-pressure, time sensitive environment. We are pleased to have supported the development of this product that assists paramedics with making better care-related decisions.” Professor Kon Mouzakis – Co-Director, A²I²
