Our staff administers medication and nutrition to the patient throughout to ensure they stay on schedule. All our EDS air medical services staff on board is informed about the patient’s medical condition and proper patient charts are maintained. We do not disregard the ID warning bracelets and the medications the patient might be allergic to are avoided at all costs. IV fluids are given to patients and if the IV does not hold then PICC line is used. We understand the patient might be fragile and therefore take measures to ensure they are handled with care.

From finding specialists to setting up appointments, any coordination of that nature is handled by our team of translators, who can speak a variety of languages.
