My research focus is experimental traumatology, which includes aspects of trauma pathology, prehospital and intra-hospital treatment and military medicine. I investigate how to stop catastrophic bleedings, which may occur as a consequence of physical trauma. Examples are car accidents, blast trauma and injuries from military conflicts. A severe bleeding may lead to death within minutes if not stopped. Improved methods of bleeding control and patient stabilization are fundamental for successful medevacs and transport to definite surgical care, which ultimately will improve survival, both in civilian and military settings. I investigate mechanical traumatic bleeding control methods, including Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta (REBOA) and aortic tourniquets (AAJT). I study the pathology of Trauma Induced Coagulopathy (TIC). I investigate airway management, including Pre-Hospital Advanced Airway Management (PHAAM) and various techniques of surgical airways. A severely injured patient requires a secured airway to ensure enough oxygen to be delivered to the brain and internal organs for survival. However, securing an airway often requires intubation and mechanical ventilation, interventions which may cause harm or death by further deteriorating a low blood pressure. I believe that new methods of airway management could improve survival in certain severe trauma bleedings. I investigate whether permissive hypoventilation could replace current treatment algorithms of securing the airway and allow for a focus on blood transfusion and circulatory management in severe trauma.
