An air medical evacuation / medevac / medivac is a method of transporting patients who are too ill to travel long distances by ground.
An air ambulance is a private jet that has been specially equipped for a patient that requires extensive or urgent medical assistance during transportation.
It is the safest and quickest travel option for patients who are too sick or weak to endure the rigours of commercial flights.
Private jets and air ambulances can use ten times more airports than commercial airlines, allowing to operate into the closest airports to the treating and the receiving hospitals.
The aircraft is manned by a medical flight crew including a doctor and or a nurse and carries extensive medical equipment including respirators, medication, an ECG, CPR equipment and stretchers.
