With its history going back thousands of years and amazing sites like the Great Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza, Egypt is a destination that millions of travelers flock to every year. While we prefer to think about all the great things when planning a trip, it’s important to also make plans for what to do if you are injured or fall ill while traveling. If planning a trip to Egypt, you should know the medical situation and plan what to do if you need an air ambulance from Egypt to another country.
Although Egypt’s healthcare system has been improving significantly since the 1960s, it still has some way to go before it’s equivalent to the quality of care provided by other more developed countries. Egypt is currently reforming its health program to more closely align to international standards, with a focus on key areas including enhancing family planning services at a national level, widening the coverage of primary care services, and providing high quality care through financially sustainable health insurance.
Why would an Egyptian native want an air ambulance to another country?
Although healthcare in Egypt is improving, people living in Egypt might choose to receive treatment in another country for several reasons. Egyptians may choose to take an air ambulance to another country with higher quality medical care or to receive specialized treatment. They might also want to travel to another country where family or close friends have moved. Medical treatment and recovery is often a difficult and stressful time, and having the support of family and friends is invaluable. When traveling from Egypt to another country for medical care, an air ambulance provides the safest, most comfortable form of travel.
Why would I need an air ambulance from South Africa to another country?
If you are in Egypt for vacation, business, or any other reason and you fall seriously ill or get injured, you may choose to take an air ambulance home for the same reasons a native Egyptian would. Your home country might provide better quality care than what you can get in Egypt, and you’ll want to be close to your family and friends while you recover. Additionally, you may find it difficult to communicate with the medical personnel in Egypt. Communicating in your native language can be easier, especially during a stressful medical emergency. If you do suffer an emergency while traveling, an air ambulance from Egypt can get you home safely.
Air ambulance in a private jet or on a scheduled airliner
An air ambulance can be either a private ambulance jet or a commercial flight with special accommodations for medical patients. Which method is the best option for you depends on your specific needs. Whatever option is best for you though, an air ambulance from Egypt is the safest way for medical patients to travel. For patients who can travel sitting upright and are in stable condition, Business Class seats are reserved for the patient and an accompanying doctor or paramedic who can offer emotional support during a stressful flight and provide first aid if needed. Patients in stable condition who can travel lying down can also do so on a commercial flight. In this case, seats are removed to create a space for a stretcher and accompanying medical staff who can monitor health and provide medical attention during the flight. Some patients require more intensive care though, and for them a private ambulance jet can be chartered. The jet comes equipped with the latest medical equipment, and the patient is accompanied by a team of medical personnel. A private jet provides the best possible in-flight medical care as well as the shortest lead times.
