Choosing Patient Transport


Choosing Patient Transport

The fast, expert services provided on medical air flights are often the key to a patient’s prompt and successful treatment. Now more than ever, there’s a long and varying list of situations where your need for medical transportation flights might arise: from overseas travel that requires the use of international air ambulance services, to critical care patient relocation, the need for med-flights is becoming increasingly common. When it comes time for you to choose the best patient transport for yourself or a loved one, there’s a lot to consider:


Since caring for patients is different in the air than it is on the ground, the medical staff aboard your air ambulance should be properly trained and qualified specifically for medical transportation flights. iLifeFlight’s paramedics and flight nurses are air certified, board certified, and have a minimum of five years’ experience in emergency medicine.


Look for a company whose aircraft all have proper FAA certification and are expertly maintained. At iLifeFlight, all of our aircraft are FAA registered and adhere to strict and ongoing FAA compliance.


You will require continuous and meticulous medical treatment during your medical air flight, so it’s crucial that your plane is properly equipped. All of iLife’s aircraft are set up to function like an intensive care unit and are equipped with state-of-the-art tools, monitors, medications, and more to effectively treat and stabilize all patients.
