Medical Evacuation Medical evacuation
may be the last resort at times of distress, either when there is no qualified doctor available in the area or during a tragedy or accident when the seriously injured patients need to be transferred immediately to a hospital. In most such cases, air route is the preferred one due to the time saved in transporting the patient or injured to the nearest doctor or hospital.
