Medical Flight Services Air travel for a seriously ill patient is fraught with dangers if professional medical flight services of a top-notch flight nurse escort provider are not availed. The requirements of a patient are entirely different from a normal person boarding the flight. For instance, a normal person can easily adjust to the temperature and pressure changes at an altitude, but the scenario is entirely different for a patient, who may require periodic extra oxygen supply to the lungs in order to keep the vital organs functioning healthily. This and other medical needs of a patient require a professional to address.
This spot is ably filled by one of the over sixty five critical care and emergency medicine registered nurses from US top medical flight services provider, Flying Nurses International. Catering to both domestic and international flights on a regular basis, all the nurses of Flying Nurses International are specially trained in aviation physiology, airline logistics and aircraft safety. Most of them are also bilingual in order to communicate with, and understand, the patient better. Specialized training is also imparted to all the RN flight nurses to ensure that they are courteous, kind, and helpful towards the peculiar needs of the patients.
Our comprehensive medical flight services include coordinating the details of air and ground travel from bedside to bedside, a flight nurse escort to accompany the seriously ill or injured patient traveling on a commercial airline or a private aircraft; and assisting patients with restricted ambulation, orthopedic injuries, behavioral health disorders, neurological injuries, and those who require supplemental oxygen and complex r needs. We even cater to the patients that require full assist transfers from bed to chair, or to aircraft seat. IV fluids, medications, and oxygen therapy are also administered on the scheduled time and whenever required on board. We offer all these medical flight services at much cheaper rates than a private air ambulance operator. Moreover, we offer complete freedom to the client in respect of selecting the individual services required of us. This can save you some money but for better patient care, we always recommend to go for our comprehensive medical flight services that also include arranging for air tickets from airlines, which is not just cost effective, but patient-friendly too. We will also assist you in determining if the insurance policy of the patient covers the nurse escort services. Basically, each travel detail will be taken care of with medical flight services to ensure that the patient's medical needs are covered from bedside to bedside.
