Retired from the Canadian Armed Forces since 2015 as Intelligence Officer and specialized in CBRNE Defence, Stephane Bourassa is pursuing his scientific research works started in 2009 in Royal Military College of Canada with respect of the application of medical interventions in weapons of mass destruction situation-related. In 2016, the Department of National Defence gave Captain Bourassa’s full rights on its two respiratory device inventions applied to the gas mask technology which brings him
Introduction The use of weapons of mass destruction against civilian populations is of serious concern to public health authorities. Chemical weapons are of particular concern. A few studies have investigated medical responses in prehospital settings in the immediate aftermath of a chemical attack, and they were limited by the paucity of clinical d...
Introduction The survivability of mass casualties exposed to a chemical attack is dependent on clinical knowledge, evidence-based practice, as well as protection and decontamination capabilities. The aim of this systematic review was to identify the knowledge gaps that relate to an efficient extraction and care of mass casualties caused by exposure...
Background: Oxygen titration is recommended to avoid hyperoxemia and hypoxemia. Automated titration, as well as the SpO2 target, may have an impact on oxygen utilization, with potential logistical effects in emergency and military transportation. We sought to assess the oxygen flow required for different SpO2 targets in spontaneously breathing sub...
Background: The gas mask constitutes the main respiratory protective equipment in a chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear environment. The aim of the study was to evaluate the impact of the gas mask on respiratory pattern, gas exchange, and indexes of respiratory effort in patients with moderate to severe stable COPD. Methods: Crossover...
Background: The gas mask is used to protect military and non-military personnel exposed to respiratory hazards (chemical, biologic, radiologic, and nuclear agents). The objective was to evaluate the impact of the gas mask on indexes of respiratory effort and breathing patterns in a human model because no data exist. Methods: The design of the st...
The aim in this program is the management and consequences of a pandemic or a Chemical, biological, radio-nuclear, explosive (CBRNE) event on the health care in Canada. We hypothesised that the existing clinical algorithms and means employed for handling mass-casualty in a pandemic or a CBRNE event are difficult to apply in real situations.
To assess the impact of the gas mask on human respiratory physiology in order to improve that technology.
