  1. Multi-Functional Nanotube-Based Sensor Array for Detecting Blood Coagulation Defects

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: DHA19A001

    Defense Health Agency (DHA) is seeking a multi-functional diagnostic to determine blood coagulopathy in real time at point-of-care (POC). Blood coagulopathy, resulting in uncontrolled bleeding, is implicated in 80% of operating room deaths and 50% of trauma deaths. There are many types of coagulation defects, which need distinct interventions. Therefore, DHA wants prompt monitoring of the underlyi ...

  2. POC Blood Coagulopathy Monitor

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHA19A001

    Traumatic injuries account for 30% of all life years lost in the US and is the leading cause of death for people under 46 years of age. Uncontrolled bleeding or hemorrhage constitute 30-40% of trauma related deaths and are considered to be a major cause of preventable deaths. Viscoelastic tests such as thromboelastography and rotational thromboelastometry can monitor the dynamics of clot developme ...

  3. Handoff Training for Combat Casualty Care (HTC3) Framework

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: DHA17B001

    This proposal is to develop a Handoff Training for Combat Casualty Care (HTC3) Framework.Training is the crux of the handoff problem today. Patient handoffs are a crucial part of casualty care, both in military and civilian environments; and today handoffs are being performed in less than optimal fashion, with ineffective communications accounting for 80% of the handoff errors. Our new HTC3 Framew ...

  4. Combat Casualty Handoff Automated Trainer (CCHAT)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: DHA17B001

    Combat casualty handoffs are critical communication moments during which responsibility for the patient and important casualty information is transferred between providers. The nature of these handoffs requires specialized training, for which no standardized framework currently exists. The proposed effort aims to develop a capability, compatible with current DoD systems, that provides caregivers w ...

  5. CCHAT Handoff Protocol

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: DHA17B002

    Research has identified that handoffs are particularly important communication processes, during which communication error can lead to patient safety situations. Organizations have created standard practices and training materials to encourage teamwork communication for handoffs, however these do not necessarily capture the needs of military medicine of combat casualty care. Combat casualty handof ...

  6. ECCCHO: Effective Combat Casualty Care Handoff Operations

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: DHA17B002

    Approximately 70% of sentinel events in medical care are related to communication mishaps, and despite regular and frequent occurrence, an even higher percentage (80%) of severe medical errors are related to miscommunication during handoffs (i.e., the transferring of information, responsibility, and authority for patient care from one provider to another). The TiER1 team proposes to address challe ...

  7. Low-Cost Diagnostic Platform for Rapid Biochemical Detection

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: DHA17B004

    Triton Systems will develop a novel approach to field-based disease and biochemical diagnostics through innovative use of extremely low cost bioanalytical devices.The proposed platform will provide a low cost, portable, and reliable diagnostic test for on-site use in austere and resource-limited environments.The devices will be highly durable, rugged, and easy to use without user-induced variation ...

  8. Rapid SERS-based Detection of Sepsis and TBI Biomarkers

    SBC: Ionica Sciences, Inc            Topic: DHA17B004

    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) often occurs when a sudden trauma or head injury disrupts the function of the brain. Common causes of TBI include damage caused by explosive devices, falls and vehicle or motorcycle accidents. Sepsis is the result of a massive immune response to bacterial infection that gets into the blood. Sepsis often leads to organ failure or injury, and has always been a significan ...

  9. Oxygen Production and Delivery on Demand

    SBC: Global Research and Development Inc.            Topic: DHA17B005

    This proposal is in response to the Defense Health Agency 2017 Phase I SBIR topic 17B-005.The approach is the use of a membrane oxygen pump using newly developed nano-thickness membranes with all the layers less than 1 micron total.Nanometer thickness membranes enable more oxygen output per surface area at temperatures of 300-600 C than current state-of-the -art 600-800 C membranes that are 50-300 ...

  10. AeroQUEST: Aeromedical Quantified Understanding via Experimental Standards Toolkit

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: DHA17C001

    Adverse physiological events (PEs) have plagued warfighters piloting military aircraft, in particular PEs involving hypoxia and cockpit cabin decompression. Though there has been a large variety of research performed in trying to understand the problems and why theyre caused, there are inefficiencies due to the lack of standardized cross-laboratory protocols, procedures, and metrics. To address th ...
