Several years ago KCSARA was contacted regarding our policies on Suspension Trauma (AKA Harness Syndrome). At the time I had never heard of the syndrome, and Greg Prothman with SMR helped me find out more information on the topic.

I’ve recently run across a website that is dedicated to providing advice and education about suspension trauma and associated conditions. The site has a lot of information about what causes this hidden killer, as well as an approach rescuers can take to mitigate the effects.
