Aero unveils life-saving solutions at the ES Show

16/10/19

Aero gave emergency services personnel a sneak preview of its new RapidStop Tourniquet at the Emergency Services Show earlier this year.

Joining 450 exhibitors, we were delighted to showcase the latest in indispensable life-saving equipment. The tourniquet, developed by leading experts at MIT, has a ratchet and buckle system which allows a person to deploy the tourniquet with just one hand. Blood flow to the injured limb is reduced in seconds – making it an ideal solution to anyone exposed to traumatic, life-threatening situations.

We also heard from police and fire services personnel who back our commitment to increasing collaboration between the services. Recent events have shown us that services need to be ready to work together effectively at any time. The Manchester Arena attack, which required police, fire and ambulance personnel to collaborate in seconds in an extremely pressured and volatile environment, further demonstrates the need for our personnel to use standardised approaches and equipment where possible, to save time.

Training and CPR was a major part of the show. Aero spoke to emergency services procurement and training experts about the need to support CPR training with effective simulation products. Our new range of manikins, or Simulation Solutions, offer people the chance to train on ‘lifelike’ manikins, where trainers can simulate real-world emergencies and scenarios that will engage and improve skill retention in learners. 

Attendees also asked about Aero’s ability to supply its products to public services through a national framework. For the emergency services, procurement can be a real headache. That’s why Aero offers its first aid and life saving equipment through the national framework and has been doing so since a successful trial with the blue services in 2013.

Connected defibrillators were also big on the agenda. We had many questions from attendees about the challenges they had managing their defibrillators across fleets. Defibrillators can now come fitted with WiFi or 3G  capabilities – making it possible for them to be managed off-site. We were able to demonstrate how easy – and vital – this is to services. Connected AEDs do not get forgotten about and are always ready when needed. Additionally, these devices can connect to the emergency services and onto hospitals.

Last but not least, we enjoyed an excellent demonstration of trauma and extrication hosted by West Midlands Fire Service. It is now the third year in a row that we have sponsored this demonstration as we believe the ongoing support of our emergency services is invaluable to keeping our communities safe.
