Cross-sectional study on self-assessed effectiveness of physician-manned European HEMSs
Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMSs) are well established
throughout Europe and are an important element of the effort to provide
prehospital critical care.
Therefore, the objective of this study is to investigate HEMS efficacy
as assessed by the on-duty physicians for each of the missions
undertaken during a certain day in a convenience sample of
physician-manned European HEMSs.
The adoption of the cross-sectional design should expedite the data collection and facilitate future replications of the study.
Finally, given the fair number of countries and HEMSs participating in
the Euphorea network, the secondary objective is to provide detailed
epidemiological information about current HEMS activities in Europe.
A questionnaire has been developed and agreed upon by researchers of the
Euphorea group. The questionnaire is available for compilation on this
web site. The data collection is due in autumn 2013.
