From Injury, via MDLinx:
Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) treatment is associated with a non–significantly higher risk of in–hospital mortality for patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and a non–significantly lower risk for patients without TBI. This increased risk of mortality in TBI patients is attributable to the increased prehospital time. These results indicate that HEMS does not have a positive impact on survival.
