For 25 years London's Air Ambulance has been at the forefront of emergency pre-hospital medicine, gaining a reputation for clinical excellence and pioneering procedures which have been adopted across the world.
We have achieved survival figures for traumatic cardiac arrest and pre-hospital thoracotomy, and success rates for adult and paediatric intubation, which are among the highest in the world.
The London’s Air Ambulance Institute of Pre-Hospital Care is hosting a 2-day workshop ahead of this year’s World Extreme Medicine Expo, to give delegates and medical practitioners an insight into our work and to share some of our advanced practices.
The workshop will give practitioners the opportunity to get involved with medical demonstrations and scenario based exercises while also providing access to the senior consultants and paramedics responsible for London’s Air Ambulance governance, major incident planning, research and innovation.
