Abstract:

The Far Forward Life Support System FFLSS is intended for U.S. Army use in far forward, battlefield situations. The primary patient population is young, otherwise healthy, adult soldiers. The FFLSS must provide stabilizing medical care in the far forward environment. The device must be easily operated, highly mobile, compact and rugged, and provide automated, definitive support for a minimum of one hour. This project produced a prototype FFLSS and performance data taken on a test lung.
