Abstract:

The Burn Resuscitation Decision Support System BRDSS is a medical device designed to guide and optimize fluid resuscitation of severely burned patients. The goal of this cooperative agreement was to develop a mobile device that is safe and effective for burn care in the deployed and en route care settings. We developed a prototype system for clinical evaluation, down selected to the most preferred tablet system and worked extensively with US Army Institute of Surgical Research USAISR to improve the design of the device. We applied for and obtained FDA regulatory clearance after additional human factors validation and other testing. We worked with USAARL to obtain Aeromedical Certification. The device is now in Full Rate Production and is being used in military and civilian burn care hospitals.
