Using ground ambulances, vital conditions such as urgent operations, serious injuries needing immediate medical treatment, and rapid repatriation to a distant hospital in another city or a foreign country can not be achieved. Using an air ambulance is the safest way to find for immediate emergency operations and treatments.
An air ambulance is either a rotary flight-helicopter or a fixed-wing aircraft-jet, equipped with all medical equipment and emergency care staff used to move patients to a distant hospital for urgent medical care in life-threatening conditions, either within a country or to a foreign country. It may also be used to carry back a patient from his place of medical care who has undergone serious surgery or treatment.
Who Needs An Air Ambulance?
Air ambulances are designed specifically for emergency medical situations. For patients who are unable to survive on their own because of some medical conditions that need assistance from care staff and medical equipment, they act as a means of transport to medical facilities.
It is advisable that when considering a medical facility, an air ambulance should be contacted if it is longer than 200 metres, especially in critical cases. In time, a ground ambulance will never get a vital patient to a location that distance. Some of the instances that could need an air ambulance service include:
A patient in a foreign nation in need of cancer care.
A patient goes through trauma and has to be transported to a distant medical facility.
A stroke patient.
Elderly patients, Alhmezier in particular.
A patient who wishes to return after a critical procedure that includes supervision and bed rest from his/her country of treatment.
Why Do You Need An Air Ambulance?
Air ambulances are the safest for patients in need of urgent care over long distances because:
In particular, when the medical condition is an emergency and needs urgent care, they save time.
They are fitted with all life support medical devices before they can get to the hospital.
There is the presence of highly trained medical staff right through the flight to take care of the patient.
How Much Does An Air Ambulance Flight Cost?
As each patient is special and needs certain requirements, the cost of an air ambulance flight is determined by an air ambulance company depending on the patient involved. It is therefore not possible to provide an estimation. Certain variables, however are considered and charged.
The patient's state
The urgency of the case.
The number of allocated medical staff.
The logistics, depending on distance travelled, and the hospital or hanger landing fee.
The number of the patient's corresponding family or friends.
Charges for ground ambulances.
Booking rate for the hospital, etc.
How Quickly Can It Be Arranged?
Contracts must be established with the air ambulance company a week or a few days after the day of the transfer to book an air ambulance service to allow the company to arrange for the needs of the patient as necessary.
However, air ambulances may be scheduled and sent immediately in case of an emergency while the medical team in charge starts to process the booking. Due to the need to obtain visas and international permits, international emergencies will take a long time to deal with. This can be achieved within 24 hours, and afterwards the flight can take place.
