Emergency Air Medical Transport Services
AirMed has successfully completed thousands of air medical transport missions since its inception over two decades ago. Keeping air safety management at the forefront, air medical transport options are offered based on the urgency, patient’s condition and financial considerations.
At AirMed, air ambulance safety is ensured by following strict protocol and procedures. Whether international or domestic, our commitment to air safety management remains an integral part of all our operations. We have created air safety management systems based on industry best practices to maintain the quality of our service and control risk exposure, whereby ensuring that our air medical operations meet legal responsibilities.
All the teams, including the medical team at AirMed is required to complete extensive aeromedical environment training programs, in additional to maintaining proficiency in their specific fields. AirMed ensures that the emergency response of each department meets the criteria set, whereby carrying out annual drills.
Our 24/7 support staff is available around the clock to resolve any emergency need that may arise; before, during or after air medical transport. They work with the medical crew to make prompt arrangements to ensure a successful transport and air ambulance safety; making all the necessary arrangements for ground transportation, aviation and immigration clearance.
We carry out comprehensive safety examination of the various functions and the operational environment to identify, analyse and mitigate potential hazards. From people and equipment to organisational structure and procedures & systems, we ensure that every function contributes to the company’s mission.
The air ambulance safety committee meets on a regular basis to discuss performance, industry trends, safety initiatives and strategies. The committee comprises of members from all departments for better awareness of air ambulance safety management processes and systems across the organisation.
Risk assessments are conducted at every stage of air medical transport:
- A pre-scheduling assessment is completed to review any safety risks that may arise.
- Once the scheduling is done, an additional assessment is done to rule out any risks associated with the operations, environment or patient’s condition.
- The pilot considers the weather, airport, equipment and human factors to complete his flight risk assessment.
- The medical crew then looks at the patient’s condition, human factors and weather to complete their medial risk assessment.
Our medical teams also hold board certifications in CFRN (Certified Flight Registered Nurse) or CCRN (Critical Care Registered Nurse) We are proud to have this as one of AirMed’s standards to provide the highest clinical care.
