The Main Results

  • A general, fluid-model based approach, for modeling MCEs.

  • An MCE classification scheme ,wherein a resource allocation policy is suggested for each class.

  • A real-time management approach.

Policies Application

(b)

(a)

A dynamic allocation of surgeons to two treatment stations, life-saving followed by operating, so as to minimize mortality during an MCE. (a) Represents an event that took place far from the hospital, hence the arrival waves are 60 minutes apart and (b) represents an event at closer proximity where the arrival waves are 15 minutes apart.


MCE Real-Time Management

Optimal resource allocation solutions for different time points 0, 60, 120, 180


Summary

  • Traditional MCE models are based on simulation experiments.

  • We used fluid models to formulate the problem and then gained structural results.

  • The suggested optimal allocation policies can be easily applied to prepare an emergency plan for reference scenarios.

  • A developed rolling horizon approach allows for real-time management of MCEs.
