Clinicians from Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance (LNAA) were recently invited to the European Congress of Emergency Medicine. This annual conference showcases the latest research and developments in emergency and pre-hospital medical care and is attended by delegates from around the world.

The conference took place in Barcelona, Spain between 16 – 20 September and was attended by over 3000 doctors, nurses, paramedics and students. The three LNAA speakers were delighted to share their knowledge with the conference attendees and gave three inspirational talks on aspects of pre-hospital care.

Dr Shayda Karimi first spoke about how LNAA teams ensure that every anaesthetic delivered in the field is given safely and efficiently.

Then Senior HEMS paramedic, Erica Ley spoke about the future of paramedicine and how paramedics are developing as clinicians in the UK.

Finally, Deputy Medical Director, Dr Adam Chesters spoke about mentorship and supervision and how to ensure all our new HEMS doctors become the best versions of themselves.

They also supported two medical students, Jade Livingstone and Jasmine Kirk, who completed their university projects with LNAA, and were able to present their work at the conference. This was a fantastic achievement for the student doctors.

The LNAA team were able to also learn from other experts around the world and bring back this knowledge and expertise to provide the best care for our patients in Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and beyond.
