Durham, NC – October 26, 2020 —410 Medical, a medical device company developing innovative products for resuscitation of critically ill patients, and the Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF), a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), today announced their partnership to support research evaluating the effectiveness of LifeFlow, a simple hand-held tool for rapid delivery of fluids, in improving patient outcomes. The LifeFlow Resuscitation Research Grant will fund prospective clinical research up to $250,000 over 18 months.
“We know that early fluids improve outcomes in patients with shock, but our understanding of the ideal timing, volume and clinical circumstances of administration have been limited by the traditional tools available for fluid resuscitation,” commented Valerie J. De Maio, MD, MSc, FACEP, Senior Scientist and Director of Science & Research at 410 Medical. “We are excited to partner with EMF to foster new research evaluating the impact of earlier, targeted fluid delivery with LifeFlow.”
This grant opportunity will fund scientifically rigorous research in the emergency department or prehospital setting examining early volume resuscitation with LifeFlow in patients presenting with shock. Letters of Intent (LOI) are currently being accepted through November 20. Highest scoring letters will be invited to submit full proposals.
“Emergency Medicine Foundation supported research has been defining Emergency Medicine practice for almost fifty years and continues to refine our practice and benefit our patients today,” said David E. Wilcox, MD, FACEP, EMF Board of Trustees Chair. “We are pleased to collaborate with our colleagues at 410 Medical to sponsor this important research to define, refine, and potentially further improve our early fluid administration in our emergency patients.”
