Our helicopters are more than an ambulance in the air; they are a sophisticated medical environment brought directly to the patient, be it at the side of the road or at a small rural hospital.
On board, a full array of medications and equipment is at the disposal of the air medical crew. We can administer life-saving drugs, defibrillate a patient’s heart, transfuse blood, or even peer inside using portable ultrasound technology.
Throughout the transport, the air medical crew communicates with a STARS transport physician as well as the hospital that will receive the patient by radio, cellular phone, or a satellite link. This ensures that everyone involved in the patient’s care is connected and participates in the decision-making process.
