Air transportation for patients is available worldwide and there are many things you should know when preparing for an international air ambulance. Not all air ambulances can do international flights, as the planes must be specially equipped in order to travel long distances. With a specialized aircraft and crew, your patient or loved one can have a safe, effective arrangement of transport to and from every city in the world. Flight coordinators can assist with Consulates in order to make the transition from one country to another legal and smooth. The aircrafts provided by licensed air carriers are designed to meet the needs of basic life support and critical care patients, as they are equipped with state-of-the art equipment. There are many different kinds of medical staff for different patients on board international air ambulance flights. These may include include trauma physicians, orthopedic surgeons, heart specialists, respiratory therapists, and ICU/CCU licensed registered flight nurses and paramedics. All medical flight team members should be trained in flight physiology and have emergency and non emergency experience. It can sometimes be arranged to have a flight nurse or paramedic on board a commercial flight which is a viable alternative in many cases to a private international air ambulance.
A coordinator at air ambulance can arrange transfer from bedside to bedside to make your family or patient have the smoothest international possible. Flight team members have the ability to navigate foreign territories, airports, and hospitals. You want to be provided the best service possible for your family or patient. Remember that safety and care of your patients is priority on all international air ambulance flights.
