There are still a few meters to the nursing home. The team often has to run during their missions.

Hello where? The helicopter is no longer considered only a means of rescue for victims of traffic accidents, but also the fastest way to transport an emergency doctor to the patient. Bye bye. - Bye bye. We found the resident unconscious in a wheelchair at 6 p.m. Hmm. -He had a weak pulse. Greet her. Turn to us. Hello, my name is Hossfeld. I'm the emergency doctor. Look at his mouth again to see if he has bitten his tongue. Well, let's go back then. - Yes, thanks. Thank you. (Mobile phone rings) A new

Resuscitation? Mm. We haven't decided what this is yet. This is a situation that hits us again and again: we are with a patient and the control center has another alert and there is no emergency doctor available near this alert. Then a call often comes on the phone: "Does the current patient need you or can this work without you?" They don't have an emergency doctor. The question is whether you would be viable. Will you take her to the clinic when we fly to rehab? I don't think we need to do anything interventionist. You should ask what we do with it now.

Yes, you can alert us. (tense music) The report: a man, unconscious in the garden. The lifeguards are with him and are trying to revive him. The helicopter takes the rescue team to the scene via the shortest possible route. (tense music) "Landing." (driving music) The firefighters are already waiting on the ground. Hello, thanks for the service. Okay, let's go. - How old is the patient? (driving music) Hello. - Hello. Hello. - Hello. Yes. (Calm conversation) In this case it was a patient who announced that he was going to visit his neighbors, but then did not show up.
They looked: Where is he? And we saw him lying face down in the garden between the two houses, unconscious. The volunteer fire department was practicing next door. Firefighters quickly realized it was a case of cardiac arrest. Resuscitation measures began immediately, they alerted the emergency doctor and therefore us, and they continued this first aid, this cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the chest compressions in turns. So let's move on. - Do you use false teeth? Okay, order the staff to leave. Yes, outside. Block. - Locked from view. 23 onwards. Now we can connect the CO2. - Yes effectively. OK. Does it have main or secondary power? - Lateral current.
Then a milligram of Supra, places an access in the back. Well, then you can send one of your people back to the helicopter by car and get our resuscitation device. CPR Corpuls. Do we have a pulse? Wait a minute. (rising tone) I don't feel anything here. - Away from the patient. Everyone away. (Beep) And now. (off:) If we take six or seven minutes and nothing happens, the brain is left without oxygen for six or seven minutes. Brain cells inevitably die. This is serious damage to the body. In this case, blood flow to the brain was maintained all the time by cardiac massage.
Do you know if you have any pre-existing conditions? Did you regularly see your family doctor or... Is your heart beating again? Relief. One two three. He has no previous illnesses, but he has a huge scar on his stomach. We cannot make any statements about cardiology or medication, because he is alone and we cannot obtain any information. Can I give you your date of birth, first and last name? Perhaps it was once stationary. The patient is taken by ambulance directly to the nearest clinic and there must go to the intensive care unit. Straight to the intensive care unit? - Yes effectively.
The helicopter lands on the roof. They should inform the technology. The complexion looks better. CO2, we have an ECG, we have blood pressure, hopefully we will have saturation right away. We had a temperature of 34 - 34.6. Exactly. BZ? - 158. Okay, so we have everything complete. We were also able to successfully resuscitate the patient and get him to a clinic for a cardiac catheterization because he obviously had a severe heart attack according to the ECG. AND? death. Now she got some pressure and was breathing. She has stabilized thanks to drug therapy. So cardiac catheterization will now be the result of the examination.
So, have a good afternoon. - Thank you so much. Bye! (Calm conversation) Goodbye. - Hi thanks. Hello. The Christoph 22 team returns to Ulm. After an operation that would have been completely different without the preparatory work of the rescuers. (Thoughtful music) This has proven once again that non-professional resuscitation can do it. A very, very important message for all citizens, for all potential first responders, is: the worst thing is to do nothing. You have to go to the patient, you have to look, what happened, what can I do? You can't be afraid of the situation. Just say: I will call the emergency doctor, the rescue service.
Until they come, I am with you. This is a very important help. Back in Ulma. It's already getting dark. Christoph 22 can still fly after sunset. Pilot Jens Jasper is an experienced night flight pilot and flight instructor. Flying at night requires increased attention and special equipment. They are called residual light intensifying glasses and they manage to amplify so much residual light even from very low light, which is almost dark for our own eyes, that we then obtain a very acceptable image again and then it is shown to us in green. However, the downside is that this is a purely two-dimensional image, which means that we are actually looking at two screens that are in front of our eyes all the time.
And, consequently, also much more exhausting and exhausting. (Alarm, uncomfortable music) The next alarm. A woman complains of pain and difficulty breathing. Night operation for the rescue team. That means even more concentration, even more tension. (Uncomfortable music) Pilot Jens Jasper checks the flight data so he can get his team safely to the location in the dark. I love flying at night. Your daytime habits no longer work at night. You don't have peripheral vision with night vision goggles. All of this takes a lot more planned work. So let's try to do a quick scan. Let's go to "Destination".
Let's say 1700, then we'll add 600 to that. There would be 2,300. So let's take a look. Here is the church tower, otherwise I don't see anything. We headed to the right edge of these dark fields. Yes actually. I open the door. There's still room here. Leave the backpack there, the RTW is there anyway. I go out and secure. It is not far from the field to the woman's apartment. But first you have to find the house in the dark. (Uncomfortable music) Get in the back, okay? Thank you. Good day. Hossfeld is my name, I'm the emergency doctor. He has been suffering since yesterday.
Especially the right half of the thorax. Yes. In fact, we just sang my birthday. Congratulations. - Thank you so much. He now says that he feels very hot in his stomach. Then came enormous difficulty breathing. (Eerie music) The emergency room doctor has already received important information from the woman's family doctor. As emergency physicians, we often encounter patients we know nothing about. We have no information about medical history. Contact with family doctors helps because patients in Germany, at least older patients, have very good connections with family doctors, especially in rural areas. Has the pain gotten worse? Or were they sometimes bad, sometimes better, and then bad again?
Always. Always like that. Then it is better. Please? If you keep going, it's better. Now I'll give you an intravenous needle and painkillers. And then we'll take a closer look. 75. (The woman groans.) Joke with her more if she is so tormented. She now she has something for the pain. The ECG is not abnormal. I don't think she has anything on her mind. The first thing we need is an x-ray. That's why we go to the hospital in Ehingen and they do an x-ray. All the best, right? Thank you. (Suspense music) Back to base. The time has come for the Christoph 22 team to finish their work. (Exciting music) (Upbeat music) The ADAC Christoph 22 rescue helicopter takes off from the Bundeswehr hospital in Ulm to carry out its rescue operations.
A cooperation. The ADAC provides the pilots and the 2,000 HP helicopter, and the Bundeswehr the medical staff. I am deployed as an emergency paramedic on the rescue helicopter. This is called TC HEMS, meaning technical crew member. My job is to support the pilot in aviation matters on the path to deployment. And on site, the emergency doctor collaborates in the patient's care. (Calm music) Andreas Knöfel is a professional soldier and has been part of the Christoph 22 team for 16 years. The fast rescue team. We will be in the air between 1:30 and 2 minutes. That's what sets the helicopter apart: that we are so fast.
We try to get help to the patient as quickly as possible. (Radio message) There are days that are full of routine. But there are also operating scenarios that keep you busy for longer. And you take it home and you talk about it at home and you try to reflect on it. (Soft music) At home, with the family. My path at first was, when I was six years old, I was in the yard and I wanted to be able to fly with the rescue helicopter that was flying above me. That was a childhood dream. A childhood dream come true.
Come on, get up, put the food in. Support is extremely important. My wife and I have a doctor at my side who, naturally, understands me when I have to face missions that may remain in my memory. But that is extremely important. Especially when there are missions with hard blows of fate, with children, that's easy... It's always going around in your head. During missions, you often come into contact with relatives and relatives, who suffer greatly and are in a kind of state of shock. And yes, that... takes its toll on you. So it's important to talk about it. (Thoughtful music) Anything else or is it good? - More.
Now we are about to travel abroad again for two months. This is for the kids too... Because Loris is now at the age where she really notices: Dad's been away for a while and all. Yes. But... we will do the best we can. Foreign deployment with the Bundeswehr. As a soldier, the emergency paramedic is also deployed in other countries. That's the necessary evil, I would say, that comes with the life of a professional soldier, or even a contract soldier, that you have to participate in foreign missions. Personally, I always see it as an enrichment, but also as a great deprivation for my family.
A few weeks in Africa. The crew also trains here for operations at home. This creates even better teamwork. Blind trust and understanding. (Bright sounds) Back in Ulm. A new crew enters service. Pilot Mark Rothenhäusler and emergency doctor Christian Fischer. Your mission... It was an older man who was riding his electric bike and he fell for an unknown reason. (tense music) The accident site is in a wooded area. An ambulance is already at the scene. (Busy music) Hello. Hello. The patient was lucky because he was found by a passing driver and notified the emergency services. Then they called us immediately.
The rescue service arrived before us and found a patient who during our initial examination had developed a significant traumatic brain injury. So there is a greater impact on the head. The helmet the patient was wearing was also destroyed, so we had to assume that these were more serious injuries, perhaps even internal bleeding. (in:) Are you taking blood thinners? - No. Or tablets? Because? - tablets. Xarelto or aspirin, Eliquis? - Lighter than aspirin. Oh well. Do you have pain anywhere now? Except your face will probably burn. Not for the moment. - Okay, I got it. Did I fall on my bike? - Yes, exactly.
Does nothing hurt you? - Neither. Is everything okay there? OK. I'm sorry, did I fall on my bike? Yes, exactly. You fell on your bike because the tireexploded. We have to take you to the hospital, okay? Honest? - Yes. They look pretty battered. The man is confused and he doesn't remember. I'm sorry, did I fall on my bike? Yes, they are Ella. Now let's go out and move you. Now somehow I have a movie tear. Yes. You fell on your bike. Well, okay, then we can really... What is this? Where are we right now? In a Red Cross car? - Yes effectively.
Wait, let's go. Did I fall on my bike? - Yes. Emergency doctor Christian Fischer decides that the patient will be flown to the Bundeswehr hospital in Ulm. There he must be examined closely to rule out internal injuries. The hospital has its own landing pad. From here, patients are transported directly by elevator to the shock room. (String music) Next alarm for Christoph 22. (Radio announcement) (Radio announcement) And that's it. It has a construction tower crane. A serious traffic accident has been reported. "That doesn't sound so good." "Christian, I'm taking a dreamy little backpack." "You take a dream backpack, I'll take it to your head." "Let's take a look and maybe that's an option." "I'll take the blood immediately.
We won't have much chance." "I think so too. That really doesn't sound right." "Eeeeee..." "He's really screwed." Even from the air you can see how bad the situation is. I'm going to get a burdock. - "Good." (Excited music) The place of the accident: a straight road (Nervous pulsation) A completely destroyed car next to the bridge Yes, of course, that is something that is thought about a lot, especially how the accident happened, perhaps in the access mechanism. How could such a serious injury occur? And a disastrous image emerged at the scene (Disturbing music) The woman was freed from the car.
According to the first person who arrived, she talked to them at first and they couldn't do it. nothing and there was no way to stop it. Well, the injury was so fatal that it has to be said that I can't do anything outside right now. In the accident the woman was seriously injured. (Dark music) The tragic thing about this is that someone who is awake is basically in a physical state where you feel like you have to be able to survive. In this case, even after rescuing the patient, it was ultimately an injury that we could not have treated or saved the patient in any way. (Somber music) Flying emergency medics don't always save lives.
Sometimes the injuries are too serious. So being fast and full of effort no longer helps. (Solid music) There's also a bit about carpooling. There are always destinations behind this. Then people are torn from half their lives. Of course, this is not very pleasant for relatives either. You think about it the same way. At some point you differentiate yourself, you have to do it. If you say you know you couldn't have done anything else, then of course you evaluate it completely differently. Even experienced rescuers can't handle something like this easily. It's always difficult when you can't help anymore. (Tragic music) There are many missions from my early days that could be reproduced in almost complete detail, that are really etched in your memory and are there, as if the mission had just ended, and they remain.
Good. You are starting? Yes, I would take the green route. Good. Lead? In his free time he tries to disconnect as much as possible. Climbing with his wife Simone. It's the perfect sport for him because he has to focus on something else. Ultimately, the focus needs to be on this because as soon as you get distracted and not focused on the route, you will make mistakes and fall, hopefully in the belay and not on the ground. Here he completely trusts his wife. Very good. An important balance in another world, far from rescue flights. In reality, it is the case that when he comes home and walks through the front door, he is 100 percent a family man and he doesn't feel the need to argue or discuss various things with me.
Maybe not bother at all, just stay away from it. I think he just has his coworkers where he can talk to them when he needs to talk. (upbeat music) Christian Fischer enjoys being an emergency doctor. A strenuous and time-consuming job, but one he still enjoys. Above all, it's the variety, the uncertainty that you can't prepare for. Of course you develop something of a certain routine, like in any job, but somehow it's not there. Since each task and each patient are different from previous patients, you always have to adapt to a new situation. (Informal music) It is often in the air or on the climbing wall.
He likes to do both. He is happier here. Well well. He was fast. (Calm music) Next mission. (radio message) Verification completed. And he sees. "The transplant was performed in Tübingen." "The patient is currently unstable." Christian, I would ask you to be yourself first. I'll keep it off until it goes out. "We have the bus on the left, the fir tree on the right and the cars behind." We were able to land in a large parking lot in town relatively close to the doctor's office. Then we joined the RTW team. (Soft sounds) A teenager in critical condition.
Blood poisoning. An emergency. His family doctor called an emergency doctor and brought Christoph 22. Yes, hello. 17 years old, condition after kidney transplant... Hello. This sepsis probably would never have developed to this point in many of us because we don't take immunosuppressive medications. However, this patient is susceptible to trivial germs, viruses that would not bother us in everyday life. And he showed signs of complicated sepsis, with the corresponding consequences and organic complications. We were worried about the patient. The rash, is that what you mean here in the eye, the bruise? In sight. We would make a second entry.
So a broad spectrum penicillin would be best. Does the pharmacy have anything? (Emotional music) So, he is stable in the sense that he has a hundred pressures, he is tachycardic. That means it is transportable for us, that is correct. Early treatment is particularly important if there is suspicion of blood poisoning or sepsis. It is known that if therapy is delayed, mortality increases enormously in a short period of time and the threat to the patient's life becomes more serious by the hour. Now it is necessary to quickly make the right decisions. When did that start? Tell me.
So I've had a bit of a cold for a few days now. Then, at night, he had a fever. - Well. Hello. Yes, ADAC Luftrettung, Christoph 22. Schneider, hello. The child's mother arrives at the scene. The main goal is simply to fight the infection. She will receive the first dose of antibiotics from us. It is certainly good to have a large clinic that can also serve young patients and those with pre-existing conditions. Since when have you noticed these bleedings? I'm just seeing it for the first time. - So from today. I'll see if I can take a quick look at your spleen before we get to the car.
In any case, you now have a family doctor who reacted well and did a good job. The emergency doctor decides that the young man will be transferred by rescue helicopter to the university hospital in Tübingen. (Uncomfortable music) What worries me are those petechial hemorrhages he has everywhere. (Soft music) Christoph 22 can land on the roof. The young man is quickly handed over to local doctors. At the Tübingen clinic we already know him and his story. Since yesterday afternoon he has noticed that he has a developing infection, especially with a sore throat. He has already shown clear signs of sepsis.
An operation that keeps the emergency doctor busy for even longer. (off:) Especially when it comes to unusual missions, you will naturally want to know what happens next. We often don't have the opportunity to really investigate or follow up. But these are precisely the cases in which we simply want to move on, because it is also a destination that does not leave us completely indifferent. But today we learned that, fortunately, everything went well and that the patient was able to leave the intensive care unit relatively quickly and today he will be discharged. (Expectant music) You could help someone else.
Good for the motivation of the Christoph 22 crew, who travels every day in their rescue helicopter and tries to help save lives. ROE 2023
