Medical Equipment And Levels of Care

The transportation of Air Ambulance is equivalent to that of a mobile ICU.  The level of care that Stat Air provides can be from BLS (basic life support), critical care, to ALS (advanced life support) of all ages.  The equipment needed to provide routine and emergency medical services is readily available on all transports; any additional equipment is customized to the patients needs for a safe and comfortable transport.  We are equipped with cardiovascular monitoring and life support measures, respiratory/ventilation for advanced airway management, and trauma/burns requirements for immobilization and pain management/infection control standards.  Our Flight team is also equipped with a full pharmacy of acls protocols including thrombolytic agents. With state of the art diagnostic tools and equipment, we are capable of all aspects to maintain hemodynamic stability and ensure that we are properly caring for the patient.
