An excellent example of Medical Evacuation is :

A skier may accidentally fall off a cliff on a difficult to reach a spot on a mountain. Also, there may not be a hospital anywhere close to the mountain. In this circumstance, a medical evacuation via helicopter would be necessary to fly the injured skier to the nearest health care facility for proper treatment.

Performing medical evacuations is a crucial part of emergency response for the HI Flying team. It isn't straightforward to complete a medical evacuation since it involves complexity and intricacy. 

It takes about six emergency responders to pull a victim off, which as well involves a multidisciplinary team, a nursing team, and a medical team.

An example of medical evacuation is the Extracorporeal Membrane Oxidation (ECMO) where a patient is needed to be moved to a different place when their heart is disconnected from their bodyECMO mimics the action of the heart and lungs while the patient’s organs are disconnected.

Besides transporting a patient on a ventilator with high dependency, PEEP and low lung reserve is always a challenge, especially in long-range patient transport.

Proper planning includes choosing the right medical team, a thorough pre-travel assessment of the patient, medical equipment check, medical oxygen planning, ground transport coordination, hospital bed confirmation in the destination is all-important steps to safe patient transport.

We do this every day, and we do it well.
