You don’t choose when or where you become ill. It could be far away from home on vacation or a business trip. When you’re too far from home to travel by ground, you can contact an Air Medical Transport to get you back home safely. Whether you’re in a domestic or international location, they can get you home safely. You can fly on a commercial airline with a commercial medical escort, bedside to bedside, with the care you need.
If your condition requires a higher level of medical care, you can be transported by an air ambulance. This type of transport includes:
- Emergency Physicians
- Registered Nurses
- Critical Care Paramedics
- Respiratory Therapists
- Supervision by a physician.
For example, if you would go into liver failure at a distant location, you can return home while maintaining the continuity of care. A flight coordinator will arrange all of the transport aspects needed for your care, and will coordinate all of the patient’s needs and the family concerns, including ground service to the hospital upon arrival. Your family will be kept informed at each step of the flight’s progress. This type of care is available as a 24-hour, on-demand service. There are no hidden fees after you’ve been quoted a price for the services.
When you choose air medical transport, your family can be assured that your medical care will be the same during transport as it is in any hospital. Your vital signs and condition will be monitored continuously. If your child is ill and in need of specialized care in another city, they don’t have to endure endless hours on the ground in an ambulance. Flights are usually non-stop, with medical care of a hospital facility waiting to continue the appropriate care at the destination.
If you need air medical services, there are several options available, depending on your condition. You don’t have to remain in a place far away from your physician or loved ones. You can call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to arrange the transportation you or your loved one need to get home safely and be surrounded by the family that they love.
