ADAMS Database

The Atlas & Database of Air Medical Services (ADAMS) includes descriptive & geographic information on air medical service providers, their communication centers, base helipads, RW aircraft and receiving hospitals. The need for such a data resource is driven by newly-emerging Automatic Crash Notification (ACN) technologies which are changing both the content and the manner in which motor vehicle crash emergency messages are routed. In addition, ADAMS has attracted interest from homeland security and disaster response agencies.

American Association for the Surgery of Trauma

This site promotes the exchange of scientific information regarding all phases of the care of the trauma patient. This will include prevention activities, prehospital care, resuscitation, operative care, critical care, rehabilitation and trauma system design.

COMCARE

COMCARE is a non-profit national advocacy organization of over 100 members, all dedicated to advancing emergency communications. As an organization, our goal is to create an environment of borderless, geographically targeted information sharing to achieve the most advanced response to emergencies.

MEDLINE®

The world’s most comprehensive source of life sciences and biomedical bibliographic information, with nearly eleven million records.

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Since 1976, NCSA has provided the data and the analysis to allow complete understanding of the nature, causes and injury outcomes of crashes and the strategies and interventions that will reduce crashes and their consequences.

PubMed

PubMed is a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine that includes over 16 million citations from MEDLINE and other life science journals for biomedical articles back to the 1950s. PubMed includes links to full text articles and other related resources.
