An air ambulance is a full-fledged critical care unit. Think of it as a hospital in the sky. Serious but diverse medical conditions qualify for this type of air medical transportation. Patients who have suffered a stroke or patients with femur fractures are best served by electing for an air ambulance.
If you have more serious injuries or an advanced disease state, then you will need to choose an air ambulance, where your medical staff has access to the proper equipment, configured so that they can take care of you in case of an emergency.
How is an Air Ambulance Different?
With an air ambulance, you arrive at the airport in a regular ambulance, which is pulled up to the airplane. Most often the patient is on a stretcher, which is wheeled out of the ambulance and placed directly in the airplane.
