Infectious Disease Unit - transport of Covid-19 positive patients
European Air Ambulance (EAA) has a dedicated Infectious Diseases Unit
which provides high levels of protection to both patient and crew. This
enables EAA to safely transport highly infectious patients utilising our specialised equipment and training to do so.
It was designed for use with Ebola patients, but has now been adapted to transport patients with Covid-19.
EAA works with both public and private institutions, providing
governments, NGO’s and medical assistance companies with the ability to
safely transport patients with conditions that might otherwise endanger
the lives of crew and medical staff alike. Our EASA approved IsoPod
allows the patient to be kept safe and comfortable for long range
transport, without any risk of contact with the accompanying medical
team. In this way EAA can provide a standard of MEDEVAC capability more
commonly seen in military forces.
Providing this level of MEDEVAC within a civilian sphere follows EAA’s commitment to continue to improve and increase our range of services for clients and partners worldwide. The infectious dieses unit is another illustration of our ability to provide cutting edge aeromedical solutions, 24/7 and across the globe.
