Interstate Emergency Medical Transportation
Emergency medical transport is for when medical needs are immediate. Sadly, immediate medical needs can include having a heart attack, self-inflicted gunshot wounds, or being seriously injured in a car accident. In a multitude of these cases, there are two transit services that many Americans may benefit from: ambulances, which is a ride by ground or air-ambulances, many of which are helicopters. In the majority of these cases, many of these incidences are unprecedented and not planned. Millions of Americans rely on fast service that provides high quality medical care, especially when every second counts. In both ground-to-ground ambulances and air-ambulances, pre-hospital care is administered. Ground-to-ground ambulances are the most commonly used emergency transportation service, and often play a vital role in the patient’s medical outcome.
Long Distance Emergency Medical Transportation
Unfortunately, ground-to-ground ambulances are subjected to unforeseen traffic jams and significant time can be lost. Fortunately, air ambulances are often used to increase response time and are not subject to these conditions. Air-ambulances are more commonly used for long distance emergency medical transportation; but can be used for short interstate distances as well.
Those who need to travel long distances to and from medical facilities often require extensive emergency medical care. Time is vital to the success of long distance emergency medical services;and millions of Americans are subjected to serious and possibly fatal injuries. Being able to respond quickly and receive exceptionally speedy care from paramedics and trained technicians can make a dramatic difference.
