Date:10/28/2010

FAIRFAX, Va., Oct. 28, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The enVision eICU® Center at Inova Health System recently collaborated with the Northern Virginia Hospital Alliance (NVHA) Regional Hospital Coordinating Center to provide telemedicine support during an "all-hazards" event to increase surge capabilities in the region.  Inova's enVision eICU Center provides 24x7 remote patient monitoring and support using eICU Program technology from Philips VISICU.  The exercise was funded through the Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI) and is part of the National Capital Region (NCR) Critical Care & Trauma Surge initiative.  

On October 14th, the Northern Virginia region participated in the three-day mass casualty exercise named Capital Shield.  The exercise was led by the Department of Defense.  The scenario was a commercial airline crash-landing in the parking lot of the Pentagon with simultaneous vehicle explosions.  A total of 133 "red" tag (critical care) patients were distributed throughout the alliance members.  Nine hospitals utilized 2-way video on portable eCareMobile carts (Philips VISICU; Baltimore, MD) to seek guidance from the physician triage office at the enVision eICU Center to support the care of the adult patients.  The nine participating hospitals were Inova Loudoun (Leesburg); Inova Fair Oaks (Fairfax); Inova Mount Vernon and Inova Alexandria (Alexandria); Mary Washington (Fredericksburg); Reston (Reston); Fauquier (Warrenton); Stafford (Stafford); and Prince William (Manassas).

Many of these hospitals do not have burn and/or trauma capability.  To address the surge, in demand, an Emergency Room physician acted as a triage officer in the enVision eICU Center to prioritize and help stabilize 23 patients who were awaiting transfer to a burn or trauma center.
