In der deutschen Nord- und Ostsee werden Offshore-Windparks errichtet und betrieben. Die Entfernung zum Festland, besondere Umweltbedingungen, Limitationen in der Zugänglichkeit, Arbeiten in Höhen und Tiefen sowie die Weitläufigkeit der Windparks stellen Herausforderungen für die medizinische Versorgung und Rettung von verletzten oder erkrankten Arbeitern(More)
As there are only few reliable data concerning mortality of SCI patients, this retrospective monocentric cohort study was carried out. Despite essential improvements in intensive medical care from the accident scene to clinic life, comprehensive rehabilitation, and implementation of a lifelong aftercare system, the life expectancy of SCI patients is still(More)
OBJECTIVE Our purpose was 2-fold: 1) to show emergency-related traumatic injury and acute disease patterns and 2) to evaluate air rescue process times in a remotely located German offshore wind farm. Optimally, this will support methodologies to reduce offshore help time (time from the incoming emergency call until offshore arrival of the helicopter). (More)
In an interdisciplinary project involving electronic engineers and clinicians, a telemetric system was developed to measure the bending load in a titanium internal femoral fixator. As this was a new device, the main question posed was: what clinically relevant information could be drawn from its application? As a first clinical investigation, 27 patients(More)
OBJECTIVES The monitoring of fracture healing is a complex process. Typically, successive radiographs are performed and an emerging calcification of the fracture area is evaluated. The aim of this study was to investigate whether different bone healing patterns can be distinguished using a telemetric instrumented femoral internal plate fixator. MATERIALS(More)
