Abstract:

The United States Joint Forces Command USJFCOM is conducting the Joint Medical Distance Support and Evacuation JMDSE, Joint Capability Technology Demonstration JCTD to enable military precision logistical delivery of critical, mission specific combat casualty care support packages to include telemedicine, enhanced digital patient encounter documentation capture, and transmission capabilities for medical first responders. Dubbed, the Joint Combat Casualty Care System JCCCS, these enhanced capabilities will be air-dropped by a lightweight version of the Joint Precision Airdrop System JPADS from manned andor Unmanned Aerial Systems UAS to augment and extend in-place combat casualty care within forward Army, Marine Corps and Special Operations ground forces, Air Force Para-rescue teams, and Navy ships that have limited organic medical support. Within these combatant organizations, medics or corpsmen will be provided an on-demand capability to capture and transmit digital physiological monitoring data i.e. blood pressure, pulse, temperature, respirations, ECG, ECO2, SP02, ventilator treatment, intracranial bleeding data and other elements common to the Tactical Combat Casualty Care and Field Medical Cards and digital voice recordings of patient encounters to enable immediate telementoring and to facilitate incorporation of more accurate and more complete point-of-injury data within the patient s permanent medical record. A set of ruggedized combat casualty care equipment and a lightweight digitally enabled physiological monitoring system are being integrated with military radios and soldier headset voice data capture technologies, and will be packaged for just-in-time air delivery via JPADS. The amount and type of support will vary by mission and unit needs. A series of three 2010-11 Operational Demonstrations involving six operational scenarios involving land, air and maritime forces will be used to determine the utility of JMDSE capabilities.
