Helm has shaped the ADAC air rescue station for decades. Many measures and devices that are part of the emergency medical standard today were developed or further developed under his leadership in Ulm, Germany. In addition, Helms was able to carry out life-saving measures in critical rescue missions, which are often only carried out in clinics.
Helm, who was also the Clinical Director of the Clinic for Anaesthesiology, Intensive Care Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Pain Therapy at the Bundeswehr Hospital in Ulm, has achieved international recognition primarily because of his services to science and research in the field of emergency medicine and air rescue.
An experienced doctor to take over
"Dr Helm and ADAC Luftrettung have jointly initiated and accompanied many successful developments from which emergency patients now benefit every day. We thank Helm for his outstanding commitment to air rescue in Ulm”, said the Managing Director of ADAC Air Rescue Frédéric Bruder during the official farewell ceremony.
