Medical Air Escort in Australia
Illness or injury can happen anywhere, anytime. But when it happens while you are traveling, it can be especially stressful. Organizing flights, dealing with medical issues, and airlines can be stressful at the best of times. When an emergency situation arises during your travels, whether within Australia or travelling overseas, our Australian air medical escort transport service is an effective alternative to expensive and high cost air ambulance transport.
What is an air medical escort?
If you are ill or injured but are not in need of an air ambulance, patients can travel on a commercial airline with medical support. A fully-trained physician, registered nurse, or paramedic will accompany you onboard, ensuring you receive the proper care during transport. This includes providing on board medical care and monitoring for your flight to or from Australia, whether you are in business class, first class, or on an airline medical stretcher.
Which airlines do you work with?
We work on a daily basis with Qantas, Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, Emirates, Air Canada, Cathay Pacific and Singapore Airlines, just to name a few. LIFESUPPORT Air Medical Services has trusted, long standing relationships with the global network of airlines to transport medical patients to, from and within Australia. We work directly and collaboratively with the airline medical desks and special handling teams on trusted basis to coordinate medical clearances, oxygen, wheelchair assistance and stretcher service.
How do I arrange an air medical escort?
When a medical situation strikes, you will want to contact LIFESUPPORT Air Medical Services. Our experienced, knowledgable and helpful medical transport case managers will explain the entire air medical process with you and take care of all the arrangements, from booking the flight to securing wheelchairs and stretchers or other equipment you may need for ground transportation. Our service is complete, bed to bed, with all arrangements and logistics.
What can I expect during the flight?
While onboard the flight, your attending escort will accompany you, constantly monitoring your vitals, providing oxygen, medication, or other vital medical treatment options when needed. When you choose LIFESUPPORT, you can rest easy knowing you are in the best hands possible. Our medical team members are expertly trained in out-of-hospital transport medicine and flight physiology, delivering the ultimate patient care. Our teams are some of the most experienced and highly sought after medical escort clinicians in Australia.
What can I expect after the flight?
Once your flight has landed, our healthcare professional will conduct a thorough examination, detailing your progress. When your medical air escort has finished their assessment, they will fill out a medical report to provide to the next healthcare team.
