What is an Air Ambulance?
As the name itself may suggest, these ambulances are made specifically for air support, providing medical assistance to people in places which are unreachable through other means of transportation. Aircraft medication of this type is capable of rescuing and providing medical assistance to people who find themselves in need of it, while being on remote, unreachable places. Air ambulances, in these cases, provide them with assistance on the spot, or transfer them to the nearest hospital, where they are successfully and adequately treated.
This kind of medical assistance is priceless and has saved many lives so far. It is fast, effective and beneficial in many different aspects.
Many people claim that this way of providing medical assistance is dangerous since there is a great chance of crashing, malfunctioning of the aircraft and other negative factors. However, air ambulance is handled by experienced professionals and there are minimal chances of something going wrong.
There have been many different interventions where peoples' lives have been saved. However, one of the most touching ones are the following ones.
Sammy Newlon, was a newborn baby who seemed to suffer from some minor breathing issues. Upon being examined by his family's doctor, the baby was diagnosed with no health disorders. However, later that night, the baby stopped breathing. Luckily, air ambulance came and intervened quickly, transferring the whole family to the hospital, where the baby was saved. No other way would be fast enough.
Next is the story about Ben Bryer, who was an eighteen-year-old boy, experiencing an accident while riding his bicycle. The boy suffered terrible physical damage, breaking many bones, losing a lot of blood and falling into a coma. Even though Ben was in a coma for nine days, he was delivered to a hospital as soon as he was injured. Air ambulance was the reason he is still alive, since doctors managed to treat him timely.
Finally, Trevor Pierce was trying to hang Christmas lights on the roof of his house when he fell down and injured himself severely, not being able to move. Air ambulance intervened quickly and he was transferred to the nearest hospital quickly, where he was treated successfully. Trevor would have died if he was moved and transferred to the hospital by car, since it would have been a 30 minute ride.
All in all, air ambulance continues to save lives of many, being an irreplaceable hand of medicine, reaching many places in the shortest timespan possible, providing help and salvation.
