Injury and illness can strike people no matter which corner of the world they reside. Imagine if someone living in a remote area, where there is no sign of medical attention, meets with something tragic. Should such people be left all by themselves?
let the destiny decide whether they should die or remain alive. This is not what we, being a civilized society can digest it. Every living being on this earth has a right to get medical treatment irrespective of age, creed, class and sex no matter which corner on the planet they reside. To provide them with medical care and pick up from the place of incident and transit to the nearest emergency unit in a hospital, the government uses the services of critical care transport companies. These companies hire flight nurse to provide the emergency care during the transit process.
This position is assigned to registered nurses after specializing in emergency care training and rescue operation. They work in an airplane, helicopter, ship, bus and train with the certified nursing assistants (CNAs) to carry medical equipments for giving the first aid. These nurses work together as a team with the paramedics and other crewmembers that include flight physicians, pilots, and respiratory practitioners.
