London Air Ambulance joining us Extreme Medicine Conference 2014

The world famous London Air Ambulance team will be joining the Extreme Medicine Conference in 2014 not only as highlighted speakersLondon Air Ambulance during the main conference but also partnering to deliver a pre conference trauma workshop.

London’s Air Ambulance features in BBC Two – An Hour To Save Your Life (#AHTSYL) – 3-part series starting 4th March, 9pm

This new series looks at innovations in emergency medicine and the improvements in patient outcomes as a result of doctor-led pre-hospital care and fast-tracking heart attack/cardiac arrest, stroke and trauma patients to specialist centres.

It was filmed over the summer of 2013, spending two months with London’s Air Ambulance including with our Physician Response Unit (PRU), a medical emergency fast response team who are tasked to out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients, at The Royal London and London Chest Hospitals and with the London Ambulance Service.  Filming also took place in Nottingham and Birmingham.

Across the three programmes, nine patient stories are featured, five of these are involving London’s Air Ambulance in the pre-hospital phase. The key clinicians involved in each patient case conducted in-depth retrospective interviews so the style of the programmes is very much clinicians taking the audience through what happens.
