Patna Air Ambulance is preparing to resume patient shifting between hospitals in a bid to support them at the time of emergency services with the Covid-19 response.
As the area braces itself for the pandemic’s second wave, anticipates facilitating the shifting of both Covid-19 and non-Covid-19 patients through Air Ambulance Services in Patna to help balance capacity in the intensive care team.
The patients which will be transported due to Covid-19 or non-Covid-19 will all be critically unwell, intonated, and anesthetized.
The charity supported the transfer of lots of critically unwell Covid-19 positive patients by road ambulance in Patna from April and October of this year, 2020. In this second wave, the air ambulance from Patna will also be facilitating non-Covid-19 patient transfers on the Chopper.
The transporting will take place alongside the charity’s normal air ambulance to act as a back-up to hospitals that cannot facilitate the shifting themselves.
