Lewis Wilber, the Chief and Deputy Chief, Air Force Medical Evaluation Support Activity, examine the lights above a surgical table at the AMESA test facility at Ft. Detrick, Md. on Feb. 15, 2018. AFMESA investigated whether new, light-emitting diode (LED) lights could replace traditional surgical lights for use in deployed environments, but found that under the LEDs, surgeons could not determine if a patient’s flesh was necrotic.
