REMOTE International Meeting HEMS 2018: SIAARTI and Leonardo bound together for the future of HEMS

On Dec 1-2, 2018 the Italian Society of Anesthesia, Analgesia, Reanimation and Intensive Care will host the first HEMS and SAR international meeting point in Vergiate (home of Leonardo Helicopters)

Italy is ready to become the capital of the HEMS world. On Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd December 2018, at the headquarters of Leonardo Helicopters in Vergiate (Varese), will take place the REMOTE International Meeting HEMS 2018 congress, the brand new HEMS and SAR international meeting point organized by the Italian Society of Anesthesia, Analgesia, Reanimation and Intensive Care (SIAARTI).

The first edition of REMOTE will include meetings, workshops and test flights with a number of helicopters made available by Leonardo for the demonstration sessions that will take place both on the ground and in the air. REMOTE 2018 will be a unique event to discuss and share information and methodologies regarding airway management and CPR on HEMS duty.

For the occasion, SIAARTI will present the first batch of the new HEMS guidelines, the first international example of recommendations on how to manage patients on HEMS duty, a project born with the aim of standardizing HEMS in Italy and become a benchmark for other services. The HEMS guidelines will address topics such as the appropriateness of the HEMS alert system, the effectiveness of time-dependent pathologies, the needs for a standard of onboard instrumental equipment, medical skills to access the service, the on-time treatment of the time-dependent pathologies, the importance of human factors and the CRM training of the healthcare teams.

Meetings scheduled during REMOTE will focus on different healthcare sectors and technical-operational issues with a focus to the analysis of the real value of helipads in urban areas, mountains, on the sea and their displacement on maxi emergencies. International and italian speakers will stand up during the workshops in order to provide updates on the HEMS state of the art and future perspectives, both at a healthcare and technology level.

The complete program is available on the official REMOTE 2018 website.
