Soon, Emergency Medicine In Helicopters


International Critical Care Air Transfer Team (ICATT), a specialised air ambulance service started by two doctors trained in the U.K., has announced plans to launch its Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) in India which will be made available to seriously injured road accident victims free of cost. The company is talking to various States to roll out the service.

HEMS will be equipped with a dedicated fleet of helicopter ambulances to provide more than first aid and medication at the accident spot. It will have advanced ICU equipment and monitoring devices, ventilator and surgical equipment as well as a team of doctors and nurses trained to treat injuries and conduct operations on the accident spot, if required, before moving the victim to the appropriate hospital.

“This will be the first service of its kind to be made available in India. We have been working on this project for five years and have invested around ₹10 crore for this,” Dr. Rahul Singh Sardar, co-founder and director, ICATT said. Read more
