SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The month of May proved to be a busy one at Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance, with both domestic and international transports up from last year.
Angel MedFlight pilots and medical crews flew cross-continents, from Mexico to England, with one flight transporting a patient more than 6,000 miles from Kuwait to Massachusetts, and another medical flight over 5,000 miles from Hungary to Texas.
"We've seen an increase in international transports and we're glad we have the capability to help so many people worldwide," said Rebekah Kanigan, Director of Business Development.
Domestically, Angel MedFlight flew in and out of 36 states last month. Florida continues to be the top sending state, while Texas is the top receiving state for transports.
Notably, patients' ages ranged from the youngest patient, only 15 days old to the oldest at 98 years young. The major reason for air medical transports in May was oncology related.
Angel MedFlight transports patients domestically and internationally with many types of medical issues including, but not limited to, neonatal and pediatric cases, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, status post trauma, transplant recipients, respiratory illness, cancer patients and burn and wound patients.
Angel MedFlight anticipates another busy month in June as summer travel results in a higher number of illnesses and injuries.
