EQUIPMENT AND RESILIENCE

Medic’Air chose to invest in the best medical equipment of transport to allow its medical teams to work in optimal safety conditions for their patients.

The first choice is to use aircraft ambulances pdestined, of recent manufacturing and equipped with modern avionics.

The onboard equipment is the outcome of over 20 years of experience of missions in difficult to reach areas, with unstable patients suffering from serious diseases. This material, which now psents the same performances as devices used in hospitals, is adapted to the special conditions of ambulance flight and requires regular training of medical stuff to optimize its use during evacuations.

This equipment – regardless of its location in the world – is traced and maintained by five nurses / care assistants who check up its condition and manage setting up after each mission, and organize regularly scheduled revisions.

These facilities are of three types:

THERAPEUTIC AND CARE

  • Air ambulance intensive care kit
  • Intensive care kit for flights on stretcher with commercial airlines
  • Intensive care bag for doctor/pediatrician, nursing care bag
  • Additional bags for chest trauma, serious burns, psychiatric cases, highly contagious patients etc.
  • Medical ventilators with various functions
  • Vacuum devices
  • Electric syringe pump
  • Vacuum mattress, etc.
  • Highly specific equipment: incubator, counterpulsation console and console ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation - in partnership).
  • Complementary aviation oxygen cylinder (3200 liters) and extractors of oxygen

All these medical devices are systematically arranged in two same sets, and each medical team that leaves to get a patient by air ambulance takes all the pharmacopoeia and disposable equipment arranged in two similar sets. These can be made of, for example: two orotracheal intubation devices (Fiber Optic Laryngoscope and video laryngoscope), two ventilators (one turbine ventilator and one pssure relaxator), and two vacuum devices (one electric and one hand operated), two, or four…or ten electric syringe pumps, etc.

The range and quantity of drugs in a standard air ambulance kit can treat in the best conditions any pathology for an adult patient of 120 kg for 12 hours in a row.

In case of an unexpected incident, a team on the mission has the capacity to work in spite of loss of the half of its equipment (application of the principle of the resilience) or they can also take charge of a second patient requiring care, which has not been programmed.

MONITORING AND DIAGNOSTIC

Our teams always follow the recommendations of the French Society of Anesthesia & Intensive Care Medicine (SFAR) to monitor the in-hospital patients.

Every medical flight is supplied with specially adapted equipment to the air conditions for wide hourly range surveillance and is complemented by additional diagnostic:

  • Pulse monitoring, blood pssure (invasive and noninvasive), oxygen saturation, capnography, intracranial pssure
  • ECG 3 channels / 18 derivations
  • Electronic stethoscope
  • Ultrasound
  • Laboratory with ionogramme, gas analysis, hematocrit, lactatemia
  • Malaria, Troponin, HIV rapid tests – Glucose – Couagulation time

LOGISTICS

Important part in the success of complex missions are various tools we are using:

  • smartphones with internet access
  • lamps and lighting devices
  • electric adapters and international extension cables
  • oxygen and air connections fitting the standards of many countries
  • coolers
  • sleeping bags, tents, mosquito nets, food rations (3 days x 3 people) etc.
  • straps and fastenings
  • parachutes and its relevant equipment

This list is not exhaustive; all the equipment is ready and constantly available for teams leaving on missions.
