Critical care in a backpack

Galveston County Daily News, June 25, 2013

Continuing coverage: The Office of Naval Research has teamed up with biomedical scientists from UTMB to develop the Automated Critical Care System, a package expected to be no larger than a backpack that will automatically sense and respond to a patient’s condition with appropriate IV fluids and emergency drugs. Intended to be a “cruise control” for critical care, the ACCS will make it possible to support casualties in the limited space available inside a crowded aircraft or ground transport.
