These annotated bibliographies are intended to serve as a reference for clinicians and researchers with interest in identifying HEMS outcomes-related literature. The reviews cover the HEMS outcomes literature published in indexed English-language journals from the time period 1980 through 2013. For articles published after 2013, please refer to the HEMS monograph located on this website.
As stated within the introduction of each of the publications below, these bibliographies are not intended to be 100% all-inclusive overviews; they are rather surveys of articles of particular interest to the reviewers. The reviews are provided on this website, to assure a single-site location for reference aid. Framing the information in the outcomes papers may be facilitated by the following 2012 article from EM International (doi 10.1155/2012/698562): Helicopter EMS: Research endpoints. Further information and ongoing updating of HEMS outcomes literature (particularly since 2013) is available by examining the HEMS monograph explained elsewhere on this website.
