Find out what equipment air medical professionals need – now and in the future – to continue their life-saving work!
COPENHAGEN August 13
Mandy Langfield from AirMed & Rescue spoke to air medical professionals around the world to find out about the latest developments in the medical equipment sector, and what equipment they need – now and in the future – to continue their life-saving work.
Dr Bruno Sicard, former Chief Medical Officer for Allianz North America and now an auditor for the European Aero-Medical Institute (EURAMI), spoke to Mandy about what medical equipment could make a difference to outcomes in the future. Sicard mentioned that equipment that allows medical crews to manage blood products is a growth area.
“Carrying blood products is an increasingly important area for fixed-wing air ambulance operators carrying out critical care long-range transports… for long-range critical care missions, air ambulance companies that can carry blood are in a good position in the marketplace.”
The GNAAS, for example, has already invested in MEQU’s blood warming system, M Warmer, which can warm up blood from cold to body temperature in a few seconds, making it safe to give to the patient and prevent hypothermia.
“The lightweight warmer reduces the amount of equipment needed in the air, yet still has the capacity to warm cold blood on a single charge of the Power Pack. The warming of blood is essential on each flight – it’s that that saves lives”, said Holly Tayler, PR and Media Officer for GNAAS.
