To better understand each other’s roles, on 14th August LNAA crew and colleagues from East Midlands Ambulance Service, EMAS came together at LNAA headquarters for a joint training day.
The aim was to develop ways of working together as efficiently as possible to provide the best possible care for patients.
Shayda Karimi, a doctor with LNAA organised the day. She said: “At Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance we work very closely with EMAS, particularly in and around Lincolnshire where our base is located. Our EMAS colleagues are crucial to the success of our missions; they are often first on scene and are integral to the initial management and onward journey of our patients.
At more complex missions where there may be severely injured or multiple patients many of the logistical processes of the job passes to the EMAS Tactical Ambulance Commanders.
This training day enabled the LNAA team to learn more about the roles of these senior EMAS clinicians and gave them an insight into why our crews do certain interventions the way we do.
The two teams practiced multiple scenarios throughout the day, including how to treat cardiac arrests, manage trauma patients and how to give pre-hospital anaesthesia. All the participants really enjoyed the event and described the day as ‘breaking down barriers between services’.
