Customized Services for the needs of Maine Patients
Often when traveling to Maine to enjoy the beautiful scenery it has to offer life happens, and someone requires a Maine air ambulance. Air Ambulance can perform transfers from Maine Medical Center in Portsmouth Maine.
When is an Air Ambulance right for you?
Maine air ambulances frequently use fixed wing air ambulance due to the length of the transfer and the care the required for the patient. Whether that care requires advance cardiac life support, IV infusion, or other advance life support. 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 they may require an air ambulance. Elderly patients utilize air ambulances frequently. Often the elderly patients require IV fluids and oxygen and overall medical monitoring throughout the transfer. 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 Maine. Maine air ambulance also performs repatriation. 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. Often if the patient can tolerate sitting up in a wheelchair a medical escort can be provided on a commercial airliner in business or first class section whenever possible. These medical escorts provide a high level of care, yet without the cost of an air ambulance.
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.
