Medical transportation of patients is sometimes scheduled. If a specific disease cannot be treated in the patient’s country of residence, then the patient will be taken abroad where there are advanced hospitals with the modern equipment and medical drugs available. Transportation by aircraft is often carried out for the purposes of:

  • organ and tissue transplantation,
  • cancer treatment,
  • ophthalmological, neurosurgical interventions,
  • bone-marrow transplantation,
  • treatment musculoskeletal system diseases,
  • cardiac surgery,
  • treatment of severe chronic diseases of any nature that cannot be carried out in the patient’s country of residence.

Private jets are sometimes chartered by the well-off, not in emergency situations, but to receive examinations and general healthcare in another city. Medical tourism also requires an individual approach and high-level service.

Who decides on a medical evacuation?

– rescue service members,

– the patient themselves at the scene of the emergency,

– relatives of the patient,

– attending medical doctor of the patient.
