Abstract:

The flight surgeon emergency kit was developed to provide a standard, lightweight, compact, medical kit for use by flight surgeons in their travels. A prototype kit was assembled in-house to meet the design requirements. Initial development test and evaluation DTE indicated a need for minor changes. The modified prototype successfully completed DTE. Twenty-five 25 prototype kits were assembled and made available to volunteer Air Force, Army, and Navy flight surgeons for operational test and evaluation OTE. The prototypes met the design objectives and were unanimously endorsed by the flight surgeons participating in the OTE. It was recommended that the kits be federally stock listed or, in lieu of stock listing, samples and literature be made available to all flight surgeons as a standard for routine use.
