[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: To describe a portable life support device for transportation of pre-hospital patients with critical illness.
The characteristics and requirements for urgent management during transportation of critically ill patients to a hospital were analyzed. With adoption of the original equipment, with the aid of stale of the art soft ware, the overall structure, its installation, fixation, freedom from interference, operational function were studied, and the whole system of life support and resuscitation was designed.
The system was composed by different modules, including mechanical ventilation, transfusion, aspiration, critical care, oxygen supply and power supply parts. The system could be fastened quickly to a stretcher to form portable intensive care unit (ICU), and it could be carried by different size vehicles to provide nonstop treatment by using power supply of the vehicle, thus raising the efficiency of urgent care.
With characteristics of its small size, lightweight and portable, the device is particularly suitable for narrow space and extreme environment.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: To satisfy the requirements of pre-hospital and first aid at scene for critical patient, rapid transportation, and nonstop treatment in hospital, this paper describes a design of a stretcher integrated first-aid system (SIFAS), which can provide seamless link between pre-hospital and in-hospital first aid.
With the requirements of integration and informationization, related functional modules of the former invented SIFAS were redesigned with principle of miniaturization. Adhering to the principle of best man-machine performance, systemic structural characteristic was studied. Aiming at achieving the best maneuverability but with lightest weight, the materials and processing technology of the framework were modified and improved.
The SIFAS designed possessed good flexibility, it could be carried on pushed, and it could be attached to many carriers, with shortened time, and continuous first aid could be realized, and waiting time for first aid was greatly reduced.
The SIFAS provides a possibility for establishing a emergency green path for pre-hospital and in-hospital first aid, and it improves emergency of the patient and quick response of relevant medical institutions.
