Prof. Dr. Stefan Pickl and Dr. Sorin Nistor from the Chair of Operations Research are developing a decision support system with a reachback function for a major disaster situation with many victims at a central supply point as part of the NATO project SPS G5700. Decision makers (medical personnel and first responders) are to be supported during the initial examination by portable ultrasound devices and easy-to-use applications on mobile devices. The system simplifies triage and provides more accurate re-trial of victims with thoracic or abdominal trauma by providing effective treatment suggestions and assisting in the coordinated evacuation of injured persons.
