Key message

The National System for Managed Introduction of New Health Technologies within the Specialist Health Service in Norway commissioned a systematic literature search followed by sorting of relevant research on "Prehospital emergency thoracotomy in traumatic cardiac arrest" from The Norwegian Institute for Public Health, Division for Health Services. The objective was to identify existing literature/research on the subject as a background for a potential health technology assessment.

Method

We developed search strategies and conducted searches in eight databases in March 2017. Two investigators independently reviewed and evaluated the relevance of retrieved references based on predefined inclusion and exclusion criteria.

Results

  • Our literature searches identified 2615 references in total. We judged 17 of them as potentially relevant. After full text reading, we included six articles.
  • We sorted the references according to type of trauma; penetrating or blunt.

All included articles are retrospective case series reporting data for around 189 patients treated by helicopter emergency medical services/mobile intensive care unit in UK (London), the Netherlands, Belgium (Brussels), and Japan. (The number of patients is uncertain due to overlapping study populations).
