Association of Air Ambulances issues further clinical guidance SOPs

The Association of Air Ambulances (AAA) has issued two new clinical guidance standard operating procedures (SOPs).

The new SOPs, titled ‘Hypothermia in Major Trauma’ and ‘Management of Pre-Hospital Asthma’ were published by the AAA’s Clinical sub-committee in January, and will join the already extensive list of guidelines.

Speaking on the development, AAA director Clive Dickin, said:

‘These SOPs provide an introduction, guidance and treatment recommendation for air ambulances and ambulance services, enabling them to adopt best practice in the topics they cover.’

He added that 2014 will see the AAA issue a further seven guidance SOPs, while maintaining and improving those currently in use.
