More than 13.5 million travelers are hospitalized each year while traveling. For example, a U.S. citizen traveling abroad who becomes critically ill or injured, and requires transport to the United States for a higher level of treatment, needs a dependable air ambulance services to transport him or her as quickly and safely as possible.
"This happened to a patient of ours who was volunteering abroad in Nigeria, says Chief Flight Coordinator Stacey Barnard, RN, CEN. "She became critically ill due to contracting the deadly Malaria virus and needed immediate evacuation back to the United States," Barnard explained.
Her illness prevented her from flying on a commercial airline, and Angel MedFlight was able to transport the patient back to the United States to receive higher level treatment that allowed her to eventually make a full recovery, Barnard reported.
Today as more people are traveling to farther destinations, for recreation, they may be trying activities they don't usually try for example, and that could result in unexpected injuries.
