Air Ambulance India specializes in Patient Transport
India
has teams of in house aviation and travel experts who will makethe arrangements necessary to deal with any medical or securityrequest requiring ground or 
Air Ambulance
transportation. With their industry knowledge, established contacts and logistical expertise, our teams can quickly organize a variety of services. We can secure widebodied aircrafts to respond to mass casualty situations and largescale security evacuations. Where we need to enhance our capabilityto evacuate critical medical cases,
India
has invested in a fleet of International SOS
air ambulances
that function as intensive careunits in the sky. These can be immediately deployed and have adultto neonatal and pediatric capability in India.The reason why
air ambulance in India
is so vital is as follows. If aperson is on vacation in Mexico and has a medical emergency suchas a heart attack, kidney failure, third degree burns, a spinal fractureetc... He requires immediate attention and the best doctors or surgeons to perform an operation. This is just one example of wherethe services of an air ambulance would be essential, to transport thepatient immediately to trusted professionals. Another example of where an air ambulance is used and needed by hospitals is in thecase of an organ transplant. For example, a person in New Yorkneeds a liver transplant and the only suitable donor is in SanFrancisco, the hospital needs the organ to be transported within 24hours. In this case they would have an
air ambulance
pick up theliver from San Francisco and deliver it to New York within the allottedtime frame. The trip is too far for a helicopter; therefore a jet is theonly way to transport it.An
air ambulance
in
India
is essential for any medicalfacilities, since a medical emergency can arrive sporadically. If youhave this service, you will be ready and well equipped to handle theemergency and very likely save a life. Make sure that your hospital or nursing home provides this service and will always be ready to savelives.Use of 
air ambulance
in Military :
 
As with many innovations in Emergency Medical Service (EMS), theconcept of transporting the injured by aircraft has its origins in themilitary and the concept of using aircrafts as ambulances is almost asold as powered flight itself. Air medical transport first occurred in 1870during the Siege of Paris when 150 wounded French soldiers weretransported by hot air balloons to France. During the First World War 
Air Ambulances
were tested by various military organizations.Aircrafts were still primitive at that time, with limited capabilities andthe efforts received mixed reviews. The exploration of the ideacontinued, however and by 1936, an organized military air ambulanceservice was evacuating the wounded from the Spanish Civil War for medical treatment in Nazi Germany. The US military has recentlyemployed UH 60 Black Hawk helicopters to provide
air ambulance
services during the Iraq War to both civilians and military personnel.The use of military aircrafts as battlefield ambulances continues togrow and develop today in a variety of countries, as does the use of fixed wing aircrafts for long distance travel, including repatriation of the wounded.Things that are certain is that an
Air Ambulance
service will routinelytransport to and from hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitationfacilities, hospices and private residences with a highly trained groupthat will safeguard lives by providing medical treatment services whiletransporting the patients. The air ambulance specialist usuallyconsists of emergency or critical care medical technicians,paramedics, flight nurses, a respiratory therapist, a surgeon,anesthetist, trauma specialist and even a physician. It depends on thetype of service provider, the vehicle used for air ambulance itself andmedical treatment requirements of the patient. All the medical staffsare required to have ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) andPALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) certifications.Organization:
Air ambulance
service, sometimes called aero medical Evacuationor simply Mede vac, is provided by a variety of different sources indifferent places in
India
and the world. There are a number of reasonable methods of differentiating types of air ambulanceservices. These include military/civilian models and services that aregovernment funded, fees for services, donated by businessenterprises or funded by public donations. It may also be reasonable
 
to differentiate between dedicated aircrafts and those with multiplepurposes and roles. Finally, it is reasonable to differentiate by thetype of aircraft used, including rotary wing, fixed wing or very largeaircrafts. It should also be noted that this information applies to air ambulance systems performing emergency services. In almost all jurisdictions, private aircraft charter companies provide nonemergency air ambulance service on fees for services basis.Government operated
air ambulance
in
India
:In some cases,
air ambulance
services will be provided bygovernments, either directly or by means of a negotiated contract witha commercial service provider, such as an aircraft charter company.Such services may focus on the transfer of critical care patients, maysupport ground based EMS on scenes or may perform a combinationof these roles. In almost all cases, the government will provideguidelines for use to both hospitals and EMS systems in
India
, inorder to keep operating costs under controls and may specifyoperating procedures in some level of details in order to limit potentialliabilities, but almost always takes a 'hands off' approach to the actualrunning of the system, relying instead on local managers with subjectmatter (physicians and aviation executives) expertise.An
air ambulance
is the same idea as an ambulance truck; the onlydifference is that one drives and one flies. Another term in
India
that'salso used to describe an
air ambulance
is Mede vac. An air ambulance has all the required tools and machines for a medicalpatient in order to transfer them safely to a hospital. The aiambulance jets are all equipped for advanced life support withventilators, medications, CPR equipments, an ECG, stretchers and allthe necessary medical supplies.There is no loss to the hospital or any medical facility that uses
air ambulance
(Government use, Nursing homes, assisted living etc...)in
India
because they are only charged a fee when they actually useit. For instance, if anyone has this service there will be an aiambulance waiting for them until they call in an emergency. There isno charge for having the air ambulance waiting around for possibleuse. To learn more about the
