Does My Loved One Really Need an Advanced Air Ambulance?

No one wants to hear that their loved one needs an advanced air ambulance. While the team here at MedFlight911 does everything in our power to make the air ambulance experience as smooth as possible, we realize that many people aren't exactly excited to be working with us – this is a very difficult time for patients and their family members. They've found themselves in a medical situation that necessitates long distance medical transport – which can be stressful, even when things go as planned.

So it's not surprising that families may wonder if they really need an advanced air ambulance. Isn't there an easier way? While each individual situation is different, here are a few questions to ask yourself to help determine whether your loved one really needs air medical transport.

Does the patient need medical care that's only available at a far-away hospital? Sometimes, patients with more complicated medical conditions need to be transported to a facility where they can get the special treatment they need. For example, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) patient or a person with severe burns may need to get care at a specialized hospital.

Would it better for the patient to recover closer to family and other loved ones? If your father, mother, or other elderly loved one lives far away but develops a need for ongoing medical attention, it may make sense to transport them via air ambulance to a facility (such as a nursing home) that's closer to you or other family members.

Is the patient currently in another country or a location distant from their home? It's not unusual for people to fall ill or become injured while traveling abroad or in a place far away from home. In these cases, it may make sense for the patient to be transported to a hospital closer to their home, where they can recover in the environment and with the people they’re used to.

What is the patient's medical condition? Air ambulance transport is a good option for patients who have a serious medical condition that requires ongoing monitoring and care. However, patients who are mobile and in relatively good health may be better served by MedFlight911's air medical escort service, which involves a nurse or paramedic accompanying the patient on a commercial airline flight.

At MedFlight911, we offer a variety of long distance medical transport options to meet the different needs of patients. Some are best served by our air ambulance services, while our non-emergency ground transportation is a good fit for many stable patients. And commercial air medical escort can be the best option for those who just need a helping hand.
