Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine (2008)

In 2008, DoD established the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine to develop new products and therapies to treat severely injured service members.  Regenerative medicine represents great potential for treating our wounded with debilitating, disabling and disfiguring extremity injuries and burns.

The US Army Institute of Surgical Research developed methods for global critical care transport of burned patients by the Burn Flight team incorporating intensive care, flow sheets, and ventilator strategies.

The Rule of 10's, a modified resuscitation formula, has greatly simplified the calculating of prehospital Intravenous fluids by Medics.

Burn Resuscitation Decision Support software has been developed to assist in the resuscitation of burn patients and to help avoid the complications of resuscitation.
