Alkan Air adapts medevac plane for bariatric patients
from CBC News
Yukon's air ambulance service has new equipment and a retrofitted plane to transport a growing number of bariatric patients. Alkan Air has installed a larger door in a King Air 350 aircraft, and the Yukon government has purchased a mechanical lift. Bariatric patients can be a challenge for Yukon's medical transport planes, which carry people on a narrow stretcher in a confined space. The medical definition of a bariatric patient is someone with a weight of at least 350 pounds and a minimum width of 24 inches.
