Different Types of Ground Ambulances

Every air ambulance flight begins on the ground. Because MedFlight911 is committed to providing bedside-to-bedside service whenever possible (meaning our team is with the patient from the moment he or she leaves their departing facility to the moment they arriving at the receiving facility), we also need to coordinate ground ambulance transportation.

Since every patient we serve has different needs, we use several types of ambulances to get to and from the hospital or other facility and the airport. This allows us to always provide the best, most cost-effective service to patients and their families. After taking all trip factors into accounts (including the patient's condition, distance, and time issues), we typically turn to one of the following three ground transportation options.

Basic Life Support (BLS) Ambulance

Our basic life support air ambulance is staffed by a nurse or medic who is able to provide oxygen, basic monitoring, care and comfort, and elimination support. The BLS ambulance is for patients who have no serious medical problems, but can't fly commercially for whatever reason.

Advanced Life Support (ALS) Ambulance

Advanced life support ambulances are used for medical emergencies and life-threatening trauma. Each air ambulance is staffed either by two nurses or a nurse and a paramedic, all who are able to provide advanced airway management, cardiac monitoring, interpretation and rapid intervention, and IV administration.

Critical Care Transport Ambulance

A critical care transport ambulance (CCT) is very similar to a ALS ambulance, but will have an additional medical crew members with specialized training, such as a physician assistant, physician, or surgeon, who are able to provide care to patients with serious illness or injury.

Of course, not every patient who needs to get from point A to point B needs an air ambulance. In certain non-critical situations, we may suggest our medical motor coach services. Patients who choose medical motor coach transport travel in a comfortable, well-equipped motor coach and are accompanied by a MedFlight911 medical crew.

In other cases, an air medical escort may be appropriate. The medical escort travels with the patient on a commercial flight, helping them negotiate all aspects of the journey, as well as providing assistance with lifting and transfer, oxygen, basic monitoring, administration of medications, and basic hygiene.

Whatever your medical transport needs, MedFlight911 can help. Give us a call and we can discuss your options.
