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.)
