I read the article by Van Hoving et al. with great interest. Two interesting aspects of the study are that it included patients in the prehospital setting, and involved both the Division of Emergency Medicine and the Department of Civil Engineering at their institution (Stellenbosch University, Western Cape, South Africa). The authors acknowledge that it is a pilot study with many limitations. Nevertheless, important lessons can be learned from it that may improve the design and performance of future studies.
