Abstract:

The scope of the study included modification of the Patient Flow Model PFM to allow the evacuation delay factor to be a user input and testing of the modified PFM to determine impacts on theater bed and evacuation requirements. The principal findings of the study showed that modifying the PFM resulted in significant reductions in communications zone COMMZ bed requirements, minimal variation in combat zone bed requirements, increases in evacuation requirements at specific time periods, more prompt evacuations out of theater and fewer COMMZ hospital requirements due to fewer COMMZ bed requirements.
