What Is an Air Ambulance?
The definition of an air ambulance, also known as a medical air transport, is any form of aircraft equipped with medical supplies, equipment and qualified medical professionals that will provide mobile medical care to a patient during transport to a medical facility specialized in responding to the medical needs of the patient in transport. An air ambulance transports patients to medical facilities when other transportation will not be adequate for them to receive necessary medical care.
An air ambulance may be a helicopter or an airplane; its mission is to ensure the best possible medical care during transport of a patient to a medical center or hospital equipped to best deal with the condition, injury or illness. Almas Air ambulances are largely used in emergency medical situations or situations where timing is of the essence in helping a patient receive treatment. Air ambulance coverage may be covered under a health insurance or travel insurance policy.
