Indian Air Ambulance takes pride in providing quality patient care, both domestic and internationally. We are composed of highly trained medical staff and experienced flight crew. Our air ambulance service capabilities are supported by a 24 hour flight coordination center, staffed by experienced air ambulance flight coordinators. Flight coordinators specialize in assisting our customers to ensure a smooth, safe and efficient patient transfer. A medical crew that has the everyday job of transporting patients in ambulances built inside of airplanes. Flight paramedics, flight nurses, and specialized physicians( “ flying doctors ”) routinely save lives within the India and around the world. This is a look into their work, as well as a look into the families and patients who need to be transported in air ambulances.
When you are weighing the difference between the cost and insurance coverage for air ambulances things may not seem as out of proportion as it looks at first glance. There are many other things to take into consideration besides the difference between the cost of air ambulances and the amount the insurance company covers for this irreplaceable service. Some of the major things to take into consideration when you are looking at the difference in cost versus insurance for air ambulance include hidden costs, security, and safety. Security is a huge issue for the majority of people and they want to feel safe no matter where they are and an air ambulance company can help increase the general security of people. Having this type of service available will help you attract the best suited employees for your work place. People also tend to be more productive when they don't have security issues nagging at the back of their minds. By providing the security found in an air ambulance company you will significantly increase production and reduce your cost of insurance payments.
Medical Staffing in India:
The makeup of the medical crew staffing an air ambulance varies depending on country, area, service provider, and type of air ambulance. In services operating under the Anglo-American model of service delivery, the helicopter is most likely to be used to transport patients, and the crew may consist of Emergency medical technicians, Paramedics, flight nurses, a Respiratory Therapist, or in some cases, a physician. Services with a primary focus on critical care transport are more likely to be staffed by physicians and nurses. In the Franco-German model, the aircraft is much more likely to be used as a method of delivering high-level support to ground-based EMS. In these cases, the crew generally consists of a physician, often a surgeon, anesthetist, trauma specialist or similar specialty, accompanied by a specially-trained advance care paramedic or nurse. In these cases, the object is the rapid delivery of definitive care, occasionally even performing emergency surgical procedures in the field, with the eventual transport of the patient being accomplished by ground ambulance, not the helicopter.
Medical control in India:
The nature of the air operation will frequently determine the type of medical control required. In most cases, the available skill set for an air ambulance staffer is considerably greater than that of a typical paramedic. As a result, those operating in this environment will often be permitted by medical control to exercise more latitude in medical decision-making. Assessment skills tend to be considerably higher, and, particularly on interfaculty transfers, permit the inclusion of such factors as the reading of x-rays and the interpretation of lab results. This allows for advance planning, consultation with supervising physicians, and the issuing of contingency orders in case they are required during the flight. Some systems operate almost entirely off-line, using protocols for almost all procedures and only resorting to on-line medical control when protocols have been exhausted. Some air ambu
