Aero National Inc. is able to accommodate various types of medical transport needs. In order to better serve you, we’ve listed some of our most common medical flights below.
If additional information is needed, please feel free to give us a call. We are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year, including all holidays!
Our services include:
Our air ambulance service is very experienced in providing medical transport flights for children, infants and neonates. Our nurses have specialized in Pediatric Critical Care for many years.
We are able to transport babies by Isolette, car bed or car seats, whichever is deemed appropriate. We are experienced in transporting critically ill infants and children on ventilators, bi-pap, monitors, multiple IVs, etc.
We try to take Mom and/or Dad with us on these flights, if at all possible, as we understand their desire to stay with their child during this time.
The majority of our medical flights involve a patient who needs critical care. Our entire medical staff is experienced with the critical care patient. We anticipate multiple IVs, ventilators, sedation, pain management and all other aspects of critical care.
Our critical care flights are usually staffed with an RN/ Paramedic, but these flights will sometimes require a physician or other specialty medical personnel. This does not pose a problem, as we have medical staff of various specialties available for our flights and are able to accommodate the patient’s needs.
Traveling on international commercial flights is also common at Aero National. Our most recent transports to Kuwait, India and London, were critical care and all 3 patients on ventilators.
We recognize that not all patients are in need of critical care, but are in great need of compassionate care. Frequently, we are called to transport a patient going through end-of-life care. With these patients, comfort and compassion are what is most needed for both the patient and family.
This is also true of some of our “general care” patients. The medical need may not be extremely high, but understanding and support are very important. After all, something made the medical flight necessary and we recognize that alone will create some anxiety.
Our air ambulance service personnel are well aware that not everyone likes to fly as much as we do!
Medical Escort Services
We travel on domestic or international flights with patients whose families are more comfortable to have their loved one accompanied by medical staff due to recent illness or age. The patient must be able to stand and pivot from wheelchair to aircraft seat or if necessary we will obtain a waiver from the airlines for transport.
Our staff has traveled all over the world on these flights, with the Middle East and Europe being our most frequent destinations.
Aero National Inc has experienced virtually every type of Air Medical need over the years. We transport psychiatric patients and patients with mental/physical challenges that make it difficult to fly commercially.
Occasionally, vacationers need to be medically evacuated for care closer to home. We also transport prisoners from facility to facility for medical care.
Though we cannot list everything we do, if you’re thinking about it, we’ve probably already done it! So, give us a call!
