Our service has performed the world’s first roadside balloon surgery to control internal bleeding.   Use of pre-hospital Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta (REBOA) to control haemorrhage in trauma patients is a ground breaking move by London’s Air Ambulance. Read full story here.

Dr Gareth Davies will take to Twitter to answer any medical questions relating to pre-hospital REBOA today (17 June 2014) between 4-5pm.

Please submit your questions, tagging #GD_REBOA, by 3pm today for consideration.

(We may not be able to answer all questions.  If submitted by 3pm then we will respond with answers within one week.)

Why not follow the conversation @LDNairamb #GD_REBOA
