Jaques Reifman led the team that created a first-of-its-kind, portable computer system that enables medics to diagnose and treat patients quickly and accurately during emergency transport and alert trauma centers to prepare immediate blood transfusions. The unit can also save civilian lives, especially in remote areas where specialized trauma centers may be hours away from where an injury occurred.
