Abstract
The Life Support for Trauma and Transport (LSTAT) is an intensive care unit (ICU) in a 'stretcher' only 5 inches thick. LSTAT is a portable intensive care system which integrates state-of-the-art, commercial-off-the-shelf, hospital grade ICU devices into a single patient resuscitation, stabilization, evacuation, and surgical platform. LSTAT's current and evolving attributes include compact volume, low weight, integrated devices and subsystems, ergonomic patient-caregiver interface, patient and system information system, near-universal power interface, patient- caregiver hazardous environment isolation, and extensive evacuation vehicle interface compatibility. Although the LSTAT system architecture was established primarily to support diagnosis, monitoring and telemedicine consulting, the information architecture and communications suite can also support hosting training experiences and scenarios. The training scenario capabilities and features include: (1) moving training out to the field, (2) facilitating distributed training, (3) off-setting training with remote experts (or potentially embedded expert systems), and (4) facilitating training-by-simulation. Equipping the caregiver via such enhanced equipment and training should ultimately translate into better care for the patient.
