4 The Growth of Air Medicine Air medicine has become a healthcare safety net and the go-to protocol for major trauma, stroke and heart services. When time-to-treatment is of the essence for survival and full recovery, the life-saving potential of even the best local emergency medical services increases dramatically when combined with air medical transport. The possibility of injury or serious illness requiring air medical transport is real* on a rural highway an out-of-town trip an international vacation a rush-hour accident even a heart incident or stroke in your own hometown. Any of these situations can require air medical transport. Hospital-to-hospital transfers for specialized trauma, heart, or stroke services are also becoming more and more common. WHEREVER YOU YOU LL FEEL SA WITH MEDFLIGH An out-of-town hospitalization due to illness or injury can leave a family member alone and stranded far from home. Parents, partners, brothers, sisters, or other family members will need to make hasty and expensive travel arrangements to be with the hospitalized family member. MedFlight Advantage and MedFlight Advantage Global memberships help alleviate this stress by getting the patient back to your hometown or doctor-recommended hospital. *The Association of Air Medical Services estimates over 400,000 air medical transports per year in the United States.
