Air Ambulance Australia Services
What Is An Air Ambulance?
An air ambulance is a specially equipped aircraft which has been fitted with a stretcher, a full life support system and other vital medical equipment in order to provide in-flight medical care when needed during the transport of patients to healthcare facilities. These aero medical transports may also be used to transport medical professionals to locations where their expertise is needed, as well as for the transport of organs and other tissue for transplant surgeries. Australian Corporate Jet Centres offers a full range of aeromedical services for emergency and non-emergency situations.
When do you require the Services of an Air Ambulance?
Aero medical transport may be called for in a variety of situations which include the following:
• Relocation of patients who require specialized medical care in another healthcare facility that cannot be conveniently reached by other means of transportation
• Repatriation of patients who have become ill or injured while abroad
• Transfer of patients including organ transplant donors and recipients; burn, stroke and advanced spine and head injury patients; cancer patients; and specialized surgery patients
Arranging an Air Ambulance Service
In the majority of cases, the decision about whether aero medical transport services are required is made by healthcare providers rather than the patient or their family. Physicians and other medical professionals will contact Australian Corporate Jet Centres to arrange air ambulance service and communicate with us regarding the kind of in-flight care required for the patient and of course, the itinerary for the flight. Our in-flight medical crews will also be brought up to date on the patient’s case in order to provide them with the best possible care during transport.
Our medical air ambulance services are available around the clock, every day of the year to provide necessary, lifesaving aero medical transport services in Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere around the world with the fastest possible deployment times. Our fleet includes aircraft which are equipped for non-stop medical transport, anywhere any time: the Citation Sovereign, the Citation Ultra and the Beechcraft King Air 200.
These aircraft are equipped with Med-Pac life support systems and due to our expertise in air ambulance services and industry connections, we can have world class medical flight crews ready to go on extremely short notice, whenever and wherever they’re needed.
