Customized Services for the needs of Alaska Patients
Alaska being a great state not only for the retirement and elderly communities but also is known for its outstanding tourism. Alaska air ambulance transfers patients not only back home to family but also to Alaska. Often these patients are elderly individuals that are unable to travel on commercial airlines, maybe they were in a car accident or fell with a broken hip either case may require an air ambulance company.
When is an Air Ambulance right for you?
Often the elderly patients require IV fluids and oxygen and overall medical monitoring throughout the transfer. Elderly patients utilize air ambulances frequently. These individuals cannot travel by the same means that they arrived in Alaska. When the elderly require an Alaska air ambulance they frequently are referred to a private air ambulance by a case manager or a social worker at the hospital they are currently staying at. Often if the patient can tolerate sitting up in a wheelchair a medical escort can be provided. These medical escorts provide a high level of care yet without the cost of an air ambulance. Often medical escorts are used to transfer or repatriate patients back to their home country and families. Repatriation reconnects patients with their families in there home country. Often these flights are paid for by hospitals themselves and act in the best interest of both the patient and family. Whether that care requires advance cardiac life support, IV infusion, or other advance life support.
In the best of hands, from bedside to bedside
A critical medical team accompanies the patient during the flight, this team can be made up of a paramedic or nurse both being critical care certified. These air ambulance flights can provide oxygen and advance life support including ventilator patients.
So there is hope for individuals and families of sick or injured loved one to move safely and comfortably wherever that might take them to or from Alaska.
