Abstract:

The advantages of aircraft in providing military medical evacuation are well documented. Training and experience have resulted in a reliable and safe military medical evacuation system. Many studies have been done or are in process which pertain to civil emergency helicopter evacuation. Fixed-wing secondary ambulance service is growing at a rapid rate without the benefit of studies such as those pertaining to helicopter primary ambulance service. Problems associated with this growth relate to equipment, crew training, and knowledge of the physiology of flight. Legislative andor education efforts are needed to assure optimum general aviation patient transportation. Author
