Philips' solutions to save lives of our service men and women

When a soldier is injured, he or she begins one of the most complex journeys that a patient can take.

The point of injury (POI) is an example. Basic life-saving measures can be complicated if the POI is also the frontline. In addition to stabilizing the soldier, you may need to protect him.

Treatment means transportation not just from one hospital department to another, but often from one hospital to another—sometimes with hours of transportation time in between.

We understand the complexity of bringing a soldier from injury to recovery over hundreds or thousands of miles. We offer products like rugged, easy-to-use monitors and defibrillators to help in the field and clear imaging equipment to give the finest hospital care. Data is available so the soldier’s medical records can follow her every step of the way.

Philips is dedicated to supporting combat medicine and to making a soldier’s journey to recovery as fast and easy as possible.

Point of injury  

As soon as a soldier is injured, the Golden Hour begins. It is important to get the wounded soldier stabilized for transportation to secondary care as quickly as possible.


The Intellivue MP2 is a light-weight, rugged monitor that is easy to use. It helps you to make informed treatment decisions until transport arrives.

Getting the soldier to the field hospital is the next priority. Basic life-support and monitoring is necessary during evacuation in any circumstances.


The HeartStart MRx is a tough, reliable monitor and defibrillator. It is built to withstand harsh environments and has received Airworthiness and Safe-to-Fly Certifications for use in evacuation aircraft.

Role 1 & 2 hospital  

In the field hospital, advanced medical care is started, including surgical procedures and trauma management.


The Philips IntelliVue MX800 gives you access to relevant patient information using the patient monitor. It has a suite of clinical decision and workflow support applications so you have the information you need right at the bedside.

Once stable, the Critical Care Air Transport Team (CCATT) transports the soldier to longer-term care.


You need advanced monitoring because transportation times can be long. Clinical Decision Support (CDS) helps make decision-making in flight easy and fast. Data can be exported to an electronic medical record (EMR) that will travel with the soldier to the next hospital.
