Having the best medical equipment does make a difference

Medical Equipment

Jet Rescue Air Ambulance always strives to have the most reliable state-of-the-art medical equipment in the air ambulance industry. It is also the company’s policy that the equipment used by the medical team is less than 4 years old. Now, why is this so important? I hear you think.

The following example is just one of many that show that the quality of the medical equipment does make a difference. On the 2nd of November 2009 Jet Rescue Air Ambulance transported a Bariatric Patient with Pneumonia from a hospital in Saltillo, a city in Mexico, to the receiving hospital in Dallas.

The ventilator at the Hospital in Mexico could not support this 228 kilos (About  417 lbs.) patient. To make the situation even more worrying, the equipment used by the initially contracted Air Ambulance Company was also unable to support this patient. The patient’s O2 saturation was below 89.

Jet Rescue’s Draeger Oxylog 3000 once again proved that there is no other transport ventilator with the same capabilities! Without any problem at all the Oxylog 3000 supported this patient and the O2 Saturation during the bed-to-bed transport remained at a satisfactory level of 97%!

This patient was experiencing a life threatening situation and was in critical condition. Imagine if you or your beloved ones are in a similar life threatening situation. Would you want to depend on medical equipment that is outdated or just not up for the task?  Exactly, and that is why Jet Rescue Air Ambulance strives to have the best, state-of-the-art and most reliable medical equipment!
