Suffered a serious injury? Need help to claim? Call the injury solicitors in Chinnor!
Serious accidents can often occur in places which may be inaccessible by road or the injuries that are sustained are so serious that an air ambulance may be despatched to locate and treat any casualties swiftly.
Air ambulances save lives every day and most regional crews deal with 3 -4 cases per day. Air ambulances are fully equipped with a full range of life saving equipment, and fully trained paramedics who may be supported by a small team of dedicated doctors. Air ambulances are usually operated every day in daylight hours, 365 days of the year. Many air ambulances offer an extra seat for a parent of an injured child to travel with the crew of the air ambulance; accompanying their sick child to hospital. One casualty is normally treated by the paramedics in the air ambulance, although in emergencies two stretchers may be transported to hospital.
Why are air ambulances despatched?
Air ambulances can treat patients quickly and effectively which can mean the difference between life and death in many cases. Many patients owe their lives to the quick response and treatment given by the air ambulance staff during the Golden Hour. Air ambulances make a difference to emergency medicine because:
- they can fly at speeds of 150 mph
- they can reach and land in rural and difficult to access areas such as farmland and hillsides
- they can cover huge distances rapidly; faster than on the ground and avoiding traffic congestion
- they can quickly decide and assess which trauma centre, specialist centre or hospital to take the casualty to, depending on their individual and immediate needs.
What is the Golden Hour?
The Golden Hour is a term that is used by medical emergency staff which refers to the hour immediately after a casualty is injured, or after the onset of illness. Treatment given during this hour may make a profound difference to a casualty’s survival and the outcome.
