Research description

Our research focus is experimental traumatology, which includes aspects of trauma pathology, prehospital and intrahospital treatment and military medicine. We perform research in mechanical traumatic bleeding control, including Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta (REBOA) and aortic tourniquets. We investigate the pathology of Trauma Induced Coagulopathy (TIC) and Pre-Hospital Advanced Airway Management (PHAAM), including different techniques of surgical airways.
