Commercial Medical Stretcher Service
International commercial medical stretcher services convert a commercial airliner such as the Boeing 757 or Airbus 340 into an advanced air ambulance, offering a cost effective alternative to private air ambulance services for those that are traveling to international destinations and need greater accommodations for passengers. Seats are removed and a medical stretcher is installed in the commercial aircraft.
There are some guidelines and restrictions involved, and therefore each case is carefully and individually assessed. Eligibility is determined by our Medical Director, Dr. B Crandall, who operates in association with the medical department of the commercial airline to be utilized for the flight. Due to the approval process from the commercial airlines, normally, we require several days’ notice in order to make necessary arrangements. The flight is staffed with Air Critical Care’s professional medical team that are trained as critical care specialists and are also medically trained in advanced air ambulance transports. Aboard the commercial stretcher service is all of the necessary emergency equipment that is needed, including but not limited to: a cardiac monitor, defibrillator, IV pumps, portable transport ventilators, oxygen and multi-parameter monitoring, and emergency medication. We are a mobile air ambulance and ICU in the air.
