How Medical Evacuation Actually Work?

Posted by Auxilium Assistance on October 25th, 2017

In case anyone is in problem in Cambodia they can be flown to Bangkok, in case in France to West Africa. When a person is stabilized, the insurance service provider company can even have them fly back to their home nation, if required. Companies of international health insurance give complete insurance coverage for people in the whole world. Not any insurance service provider is big enough to have their personal fleet of planes available in each and every country. In its place, they have agreements with medical evacuation planes and companies worldwide. Thus, in the case of a harsh illness or injury, air moving for the person can be organized very fast. As per on the patient’s physical location, extraction can be available generally within the period of 2 to 3 hours.

Some international service providers have divisions within their companionship that handle medical and political evacuation 24/7 for their customers. One of the firms that we work with has experienced nurses and officer on staff in their division of evacuation.

Here is the normal process of a medical evacuation:

1.   The insurance service provider is contacted regarding the requirement for a medical transportation. And decide the things accordingly.
2.   The division of Medical Evacuation in the company makes a complete and quick evaluation of the injury or illness. Generally, this is done in discussion with a physician which works with the medical personnel and insurance company that are on the ground alleviating the patient.
3.   Estimation of the geographic and physical location of the patient to the closest airport and adjacent enough medical facilities is measured.
4.   The patient is relinquished to the nearest sufficient medical facility, and when stabilized and in case medically required, evacuated to their home nation.
5.   In case the medical situation is not excessively serious they would use a general carrier for the mass departure often sending along medical persons to help the patient in flight. In case the condition of patient is very serious, they would charter a plane from a company of medical evacuation in the specific region.
