Abstract:

The vacuum mattress is necessary for the transport of casualties with specific types of injuries. No one of the models satisfies the requirements to any extent completely. The vacuum mattresses require a specific patching kit and must be inflatable for patching which requires a valve change. The pumps supplied all are either limited or not usable at all. A pump is required which is of commercial quality and usable models are to be selected. Further tests are needed with an improved model.
