Abstract

One of the most recent innovations coalescing computer technology and medical care is the development of integrated medical component technology coupled with a computer system. One such example is the patient transport system known as the Life Support for Trauma and Transport (LSTATTM). LSTAT is a self-contained stretcher-based intensive care unit designed by the United States Army to provide care for critically injured patients during transport and in remote settings where resources are limited. It contains conventional medical equipment that has been reduced in size and integrated into a single platform. This article presents the latest technology applied to the field of medicine, which should not be limited to patients injured during warfare but should also be used to assist the injured civilian population who need transport from remote settings to urban trauma centers.
