Paper Abstract

Combat casualty care is a subfield of emergency medicine that requires intense situational awareness, encyclopedic knowledge, split-second decision making, and high-performing technology. Training medics with these skills requires much time and effort, yet even with the best training, medics can still experience numerous challenges. Artificial intelligence (AI) could offer numerous positive benefits in combat casualty care, but also has significant drawbacks and pitfalls. As a result, there is a vast, multi-dimensional space of possible AI systems and implications to be investigated. Given this context, it would be beneficial to develop a system for guiding research and development efforts in this arena. This paper describes our initial efforts to build a decision-making framework for that purpose. This framework should benefit the field of combat casualty care in at least two ways. First, the framework will support a comprehensive and holistic view of AI applications. Second, it should help to prioritize areas and techniques for research investments.
