Airborne Critical Care Unit
All AirCARE1™ aircraft are equipped as Airborne Critical Care Units. The core of the Airborne Critical Care Units is our signature LifePort Patient Care System.
AirCARE1™ is the ONLY air ambulance company whose jets are uniquely equipped with the following:
- A thicker 4-inch mattress pad
- A monitor bracket attached to the stretcher for securing the patient monitoring equipment
- An adjustable knee lift
Increased Patient Comfort
This customized LifePort patient care system, built to our specifications, includes many unique features not commonly seen in the industry. We are the ONLY air ambulance company in the nation with a upgraded to a thicker 4-inch mattress pad for increased patient comfort (industry standard is 2 inches). We can provide this enhanced level of equipment and support as our Lear 35A aircraft has been modified exclusively for air ambulance.
Preventing Injuries and Relieving Discomfort
We have a bracket attached to the stretcher for securing the patient monitoring equipment, which allows for continuous monitoring of the patient, even during loading and unloading (again, better than the industry standard). This bracket also ensures the equipment will never shift during flight, which could injure the patient or the staff. Some air ambulances just set the equipment on an open seat in the aircraft. We are unique in the industry in having an adjustable knee lift, to prevent the patient from sliding down the stretcher during takeoff and landing. The knee lift has the added benefit of increased patient comfort during the flight. The knee lift provides significant relief to the discomfort felt by patients while lying on the LifePort patient care stretcher.patient care stretcher.
Loading and unloading the patient into the aircraft can be a stress inducing experience for everyone: the patient, the family, and the air medical transport flight team. To specifically eliminate any complications during this critical stage of the air ambulance process, we are one of a very few companies that incorporates a mechanical loading/unloading system. Our loading ramp prevents any tipping, tilting or wobbling of the patient while they are being transferred safely in and out of the aircraft providing the safest most enhanced loading method in the industry.
