NO-FEAR Webinar: Medical and logistical constraints of COVID-19 patient transfers
on November 10, 2021
The difficulties of handling patient flow in island areas and the need to transfer patients by air, sometimes over very long distances, were presented. Major constraints applied to aeromedical patient evacuations and these situations show in what sense this pandemic is a disaster. A particular focus was placed on the oxygen issue. The consortium's work has also highlighted the discomfort of Biological PPE worn by medical teams. A promising hood created in partnership with the BAE system and Lancaster University was presented in the webinar.
