Which Transport is right for me?

In some cases the individual requiring a medical evacuation is not in any condition to evaluate his or her transport needs.  The experienced and medically trained staff at Trinity Air Ambulance International is available 24/7/365 to guide you in making the right decision regarding your transportation needs.

The following items are key components in determining the appropriate Transport service that is right for you:

  • The Condition of the Patient is the most important aspect in deciding which method of transportation is required.  An emergency medical evacuation, Medevac, flight is required when the patient is seriously ill or has injuries that require medial treatment throughout the transport.  This care is administered by our in-flight Doctors, Nurses and Critical Care Paramedics.

We also offer Commercial Airline Escorts for patients who are more medically stable and capable of flying commercially.  Our Medical Escorts are there to assist in the total care of the patient.  From administering medications and oxygen to mobility assistance and support, our Medial Escorts will ensure the patient’s transport is completely comfortable.

  • The Mode of transport and the Distance traveled are the two main factors in determining cost.

 

The distance traveled depends on the client’s location and condition.  Should immediate treatment be required, we can arrange admissions and transport to International facilities closest to the patient or to the closest appropriate medical facility upon entering the U.S.
If the client is medically stable and wishes to be transported and received at another facility, i.e. one closer to their home, we will accommodate for this request.

The mode of transport may be via a private jet, commercial airline, helicopter, train, watercraft, ground ambulance, etc.
Is the patient medically fit-to-fly with a Medical Escort on a commercial flight?  Can the patient tolerate long ground transports?  Will a helicopter or watercraft be required to transport the patient?  Will the client require an immediate Medevac flight by means of a private jet due to his or her level of acuity and time constraints?  All of these questions will be answered in determining the most appropriate mode of transport(s) required.

  • Availability– What is available at the patient’s location?  In some remote locations, commercial airline flights may not exist or may be time prohibitive.  What is the driving distance from the hospital to the airport?  Is the runway length too short for jet aircraft to land?  Can the cruise ship dock at the next closest port of call?

We can coordinate under all conditions to expedite each transport in the most safe and timely manner.

  • Companions– At times it may be more cost effective to fly in a private aircraft rather than commercially when there are a number of companions traveling with the patient.  Depending on the number of companions, the cost of last minute commercial airline tickets can add up.  For instance, the Learjet 35A can accommodate up to 4 additional companions at no extra cost.  

Let the experienced team of Trinity Air Ambulance International help you in making  those critical decisions when transporting a loved one who is in need.
