Blades inside the cabin: The next step in air medical services
from By Mark Huber
Earlier this year I wrote about
the growing trend of performing airborne blood transfusions
on trauma patients. What's the next logical step? Airborne surgery. Performing life-saving medical procedures in the air is not a new phenomenon — the U.S. Air Force has been doing it for years. Over the last decade, the practice has spread to the civil sector, mainly in specially-equipped airliners turned into air ambulances. But you don't need the massive cabin of a converted airliner to perform life-saving procedures.
