MEDEVAC - RESCUE FROM THE AIR

Organizing an ambulance or return transport is a task that can put a heavy strain on the relatives and relatives of a patient in a crisis situation. We often hear the following questions: Is the company also medically competent? Is this flight really safe? Will our family member / friend also receive medical care during the flight? Are the costs excessive?

WHAT IS AN AMBULANCE FLIGHT?

A medical evacuation (English: medevac) is the air transport of a patient whose condition does not permit ground transport over a long distance.

A medical aircraft is a private jet equipped with emergency medical and / or intensive care equipment that specializes in the transport of patients.

An ambulance flight is the safest and fastest travel option for patients who are too sick or too weak to embark on a strenuous scheduled flight.

Private jets and rescue planes can fly to significantly more airports (ten times as much) than normal scheduled aircraft. Hence, you can bring a patient much closer to the receiving hospital.

The aircraft is also manned by a medical team (paramedics, nurses or specialists) and equipped with extensive medical equipment, including a ventilator, ECG, CPR and of course beds and / or stretchers.
