The feature describes Nathan Christopherson, vice president of surgery for Northwell Health in New York, who oversees trauma centers, and his discovery of the T6 iPad app:
Apple says the app has been used in Afghanistan, as well as at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, it is named after the six-hour period where medical intervention after a traumatic injury can get the best outcome. The app can deliver all sorts of info like calcium alerts during blood transfusions and can run across multiple devices using the cloud.
One Northwell Health surgeon said "Information is power, and T6 is a great tool to improve the accuracy of information transmission throughout the continuum of a patient's care. In the military, we've learned how critical that is when it comes to moving severely injured patients from the field. T6 is going to help streamline the flow of data from the point of injury to the ICU and everywhere in between — that's going to be huge for trauma medicine, whether that's civilian or military."
