Probably the biggest clinical prehospital study in Finland
BOPRA is an investigator-driven study carried out in cooperation of FinnHEMS Research and Development Unit, university hospital districts, Lapland hospital district and several universities of applied sciences. The study is mainly funded by FinnHEMS R&D Unit but it has also received some funding from Helsinki University Hospital. No funding is received from the manufacturers and the study group members have no conflicts of interest.
Anesthesia and rapid sequence intubation are some of the most essential procedures performed by Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) in Finland. Participation in a clinical study may help develop the treatment of critically ill or injured patients.
