Medical transport planning first identifies medical need…. those decisions require medical input very early in the day

“Medical transport planning first identifies medical need,” said Wayne Lyle, M.D., Medical Director for Airborne Air Ambulance’s global planning team. “For example, are we talking about a jet equipped to the highest level of intensive neonatal critical care, or are we looking for a skilled nurse to help a loved one use a wheelchair to navigate a commercial flight? Clearly, those decisions require medical input very early in the day,” Dr. Lyle said. The medical decisions include specific evaluations regarding basic, advanced or critical life support equipment and services.

Medical Flight “Level of Care” is organized very much as it is at any hospital or medical center. The three broadest categories — basic, advanced and critical — are starting points for the process of planning each medical passenger’s personal, unique in-flight support system.
