Have you considered what would happen if you had a serious injury or illness while traveling far away from home? Most travelers do not think about how they would get home if they experienced an injury or serious illness while traveling. You might think that an accident won’t happen to you, but an unfortunate accident can happen to anyone at any time. A slip on a set of stairs might be all that it takes for you to have a serious medical problem far away from home. At Medical Transport Services, we offer long distance medical transport services and transport to patients of any age. We are also set up to transport special-needs patients. Commercial airlines may not allow you to fly home on your own or with your travel partner because of medical liability. At Medical Transport Services, we offer long-distance air ambulance service to help you get home safely.
What Our Air Ambulance Service Is
At Medical Transport Services, we are not an insurance provider. We are an air ambulance that you can use if you need a medical evaluation. Our services work with your travel insurance to cover your evacuation costs. Paying for an air ambulance out-of-pocket could be cost-prohibitive, so it is a good idea to ensure that your travel insurance includes medical evacuation coverage. We liaise with your medical insurance company for pre-authorization and document submission.
Basic In-flight Medical Services
We provide both emergency and non-emergency air medical transports. Our medical associates take patients to and from hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centers and private residences. Our crews consist of a flight nurse and a flight paramedic or respiratory therapist in addition to the licensed pilots. Our planes are like a flying intensive care unit. The patient area features a medical stretcher and base, oxygen and ventilators, IV pumps, medications and more. During the in-flight bedside services, we provide medical care including but not limited to oxygen administration and saturation monitoring, sedation, main management, wound care maintenance, temperature monitoring, vital signs monitoring and toileting assistance.
Specialty In-flight Medical Care
Our flight nurses and paramedics also provide specialty in-flight medical care. With a 12-lead EKG and medical infusion pump, we provide your physicians on the ground with real-time updates about your status. We also offer advanced airway placement, intra-aortic balloon pump monitoring, intubation and vaso-active medications and blood products.
