Abstract : The Burn Resuscitation Decision Support System (BRDSS) is a medical device designed to guide and optimize fluid resuscitation of severely burned patients. The goal of this cooperative agreement is to develop a mobile device that is safe and effective for burn care in the deployed and en route care settings. In this period, we completed Human Factors studies, hardware testing, software design improvements and obtained FDA 510(k) clearance. The device obtained Airmedical Certification. We have completed all major deliverables.
