What is Air Ambulance?
An air ambulance is an aircraft equipped to transport sick or injured people. Generally, the patient’s transportation takes place during interfacility transfer, which implies that the journey starts at a hospital in one town and ends at another medical facility within the same city or region. If needed, Air Ambulance can also be used to transport organs for organ transplantation.
The aircraft used as an air ambulance is a compromise between medical requirements and the need for a sufficiently large transport capacity. The main requirements concern the area of the patient compartment, cabin space and cargo hold volume, which is related to the size of stretchers, cabinets, and other equipment.
History of Air Ambulance
The use of aircraft as ambulances has a long history. after the end of World War I, the first recorded attempts to use aircraft as ambulances for battlefield evacuation and rescue during and after World War II were made by several countries including France, Germany, and the United States.
