Abstract:

This document reports the results of a test and evaluation of five medical backpacks. The tests were performed over a three-month period by the medical departments of four Navy ships and one land-based Marine Corps search and rescue unit. The prototype medical backpacks were designed to transport advanced life support medical equipment and supplies such as oxygen and ECG monitordefibrillator from the ships medical department to a shipboard casualty. This configuration allowed the medical personnel to have their hands free to negotiate the narrow passages and ladders found aboard ship. Author
