Medical evacuation, or medevac, is the transportation of seriously ill patients by air. We provide fully equipped air ambulances, with experienced medical personnel on board, to ensure a safe and gentle journey home.
To provide optimum care for patients, our air ambulances are fitted with permanently installed intensive care equipment. If required, additional equipment can be installed. This flexibility guarantees a fast, safe journey with the shortest possible waiting time at any time, day or night.
Safe medevac transport by ambulance jet
Our ambulance jets carry the following medical equipment:
- Intensive care unit with vacuum mattress and patient loading system
- Central oxygen tank (6,000 litres) and optional reserve tank
- Multi-parameter intensive care transport monitor
- Compact defibrillator/monitor system
- Intensive care respirator
- Portable blood gas analyser
- Satellite telephone.
This is just a selection of the medical equipment on board, but we can source extra equipment, depending on the patient’s medical condition, to ensure their safety and well-being.
Medevac of intensive care patients
In our air ambulance, we are able to safely medevac patients, even those who require intensive medical care. Patients who are travelling with us receive excellent care and arrive at their destination as quickly as possible. Highly experienced, specialist intensive care physicians accompany patients during their medical repatriation: in the event of a medical emergency, they can intervene immediately.
It is even possible to adjust cabin pressure in our air ambulance to the air pressure on the ground, providing a so-called ‘sea level flight’, which is necessary when transporting patients with certain medical conditions.
We also provide ambulance transfers from hospital to airport and, after the air ambulance flight, to your chosen hospital in the UK. Our comprehensive bed-to-bed service is ideal for seriously ill patients: it helps to minimise waiting times for patients and families, and ensures the best possible care during the journey.
