AAI Air Medical Transportation
"Flight Medical" Can Used To Describe Us For Patient Transport
The air med transport of cardiac patients is a noticeably growing practice. For assorted medical, social, and economic indications, patients are being flown longer distances at commercial altitudes, including international and intercontinental flights. There are data supporting the use of fixed winged aeromedical flights at the beginning of the course of a cardiac event for patients needing medical flight transfer for percutaneous (pertains to any medical procedure where access to inner organs or other tissue is done via needle-puncture of the skin, rather than by using an "open" approach where inner organs or tissue are exposed) coronary intervention or aortocoronary bypass. When contemplating elective long-distance air med transport of cardiac patients for social or economic reasons, it is necessary to weigh the benefits against the potential risks of flight. A few recent studies suggest that long distance air med transport is safe under confidently favourable circumstances. Current guidelines for travel by flight after myocardial infarction may address the use of medical escorts or flying ambulances equipped with state-of-the-art intensive care aviation medical equipment.
