Prehospital medical treatment, new technology and biosensors

Our research into sensor technology and signal processing developments is designed to empower both clinicians and patients. We aim to enhance advanced prehospital treatment, bridge monitoring between prehospital and in-hospital settings, and aid detection of health deterioration necessitating a transfer from homecare to hospital care. These aspects also consider future challenges outlined in the whitepaper on regional and rural policy. 

Our research scope also includes the evaluation and feasibility of advanced treatment protocols and technologies. These include REBOA (Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta), ECPR (Extracorporeal Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation), active decompression strategies during chest compressions in cardiac arrest, the therapeutic use of Nitric Oxide gas during patient transfer with respiratory failure, and advancements in toxicology. The treatment avenues are explored to enhance the efficacy and outcomes for the relevant patient populations.

In addition to these subjects, our research objectives cover airway management, trauma, analgesia, simulation training, and hemodynamic control. Substance abuse treatment, mainly through the NINA studies, are significant clinical priority areas.
