San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 30, 2013
Aeromedevac has announced that they have formed a special team of professionals dedicated to providing service including air ambulance flights to Mexico. Aeromedevac’s Mexico Team is comprised of Mexican citizens who specialize in assisting Mexican people and organizations with their emergency medical transportation needs.
Aeromedevac is a worldwide provider of emergency transportation medical flights for critical care patients. Their fleet provides medical flights to airports located in and outside of the United States. Emergency medical flights can save lives by getting patients to the best medical facilities in the world.
Air ambulance service through Aeromedevac is an all-inclusive package. The California-based air ambulance has two aircrafts available equipped with life-saving equipment. Each aircraft has two-passenger seating, a specialty fitted stretcher, comfortable bedding and safety restraints for the patient and guests. The electrical system supports medical devices and an internal battery backup system has been installed as an added safety measure. The equipment on the medical flights surpasses what is available in critical care ambulances.
The flight team for the air ambulance service consists of a team of registered nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists and physicians. The members of the team will depend on the health of the patient and his or her individual medical needs. On all medical flights, team members are certified in advanced cardiac life support, advanced trauma life support and pediatric advanced life support techniques.
Aeromedevac arranges everything for their clients. Ground ambulance service is available to and from the airport and flights are non-stop up to a two thousand mile radius. With the jets being able to reach heights up to 45,000 feet, the planes can typically avoid most weather disturbances.
Case managers are first contacted to determine whether or not a medical flight is appropriate for the patient. They will arrange all details about the flight, including contacting insurance companies in regards to coverage. It comes as a surprise to many patients to discover that medical flights are built into their insurance plans and traveler assistive programs. They will also gather all materials needed for travel clearance and arrange for a wheelchair to and from the plane if required. The staff will handle all medications and can even keep friends and family of the patient posted during the transportation process.
Aeromedevac has twenty years of experience in providing air ambulance service to the United States, Mexico and Canada. They also can be contacted to arrange return service from Mexico. They have special relationships with the top hospitals in the United States and can be asked to make admission arrangements to facilities such as University of California San Diego Medical Center and Shriners Children's Burn Center.
Flights can be arranged quickly dependent on the needs of the patient. For more information about the air ambulance service, patients and family members can visit their website at http://www.aeromedevac or call 1-800-462-0911.
