An Air Ambulance Checklist

Air-ambulance-checklistAn air ambulance trip isn't like other kinds of travel that you may have spent months preparing for. Often, the need for medical transport arises suddenly because of a medical emergency. It can be a hectic, stressful time, and patients and their families may feel like they're forgetting something important as they prepare for their journey.

If you're getting ready for an air ambulance trip, reviewing the following checklist could be helpful. It doesn't cover everything you may want to bring with you, but it does cover some of the most important items.

  • Carry-on luggage: Air ambulance planes are typically small, so you won't be able to pack a lot, but patients and passengers can bring a small carry-on, no larger than 22"x14"x9" (typical carry-on size). If you have additional luggage, our staff is happy to work with you to make arrangements to have the luggage delivered to your final destination. (You'll be responsible for additional shipping costs.)
  • Your passport and other travel documents: For international air ambulance trips, a passport and other travel documents are essential for each passenger. You can contact us if you have questions about what specific documents you may be required to have.
  • Medications: Accompanying family members should make sure to pack all over-the-counter and prescription medications they may need. (Our air ambulance medical crew will handle the patient's medication needs.) If a passenger has a medical condition, we also ask that you mention it to our medical crew, just in case anything they fall ill during the flight. It doesn't happen often, but it's not unheard of for our medical crew to have to provide medical care to accompanying family members.
  • Reading material: Air ambulance flights can be long. Book and magazines are an excellent way for family members and patients to pass the time. Even if a patient isn't able to read themselves, a passenger could read to the patient.
  • Electronic devices: We encourage you to bring portable DVD players, tablets, MP3 players, or other devices to keep yourself entertained while on your flight. Of course, we ask that you check with the flight crew before using any device while in-flight.
  • Pets: Yes, you may be able to bring your beloved cat, dog—even your pet bunny rabbit—with you on your air ambulance trip. While we can't accommodate pets on every flight, we know how much comfort they can bring to patients, so we do our best to meet these requests. If you think you might want to travel with your pet, please let us know in advance. All pets who travel on MedFlight911 air ambulance flights must be current on vaccinations and travel in an approved carrier. Your pet won't be allowed out of the carrier during the flight.

Still not sure what you should (or shouldn't) pack for an air ambulance trip? Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We're always happy to help!
