What we have to offer

Medanta Flying Doctors are fully equipped with state-of-the-art advanced cardiac life support systems. Our experienced doctors and nurses are specially trained in trauma and medical evacuations and are ready to fly on a moment’s notice.

With its diverse fleet of aircraft, Medanta’s Air Ambulance is capable of both domestic and international medical evacuations. It then comes as no surprise that we have done more than 1,600 evacuations with over 150 international evacuations.

Based on an assessment of the patient’s condition a specialised team of doctors and nurses are dispatched. For each patient, a team of specialists appropriate for the patient (e.g., cardiologists for patients suffering from acute cardiac emergencies) along with critical care and anaesthesia doctors are available to provide speciality based care even before the patient reaches the hospital.

  • Perfusionist to handle IABP support
  • Medanta’s critical care specialist
  • Specialised doctor in-charge
  • Medanta’s emergency trauma physician
  • Anaesthesiologists

From Neonatal Ventilators to Intra-Aortic Balloon Pumps, all of our life-saving equipment are of high quality and calibrated to the very best in the world. Each of this equipment is specifically customised to be used onboard at high altitudes.

The onboard medical team is always in touch with the base medical team on the ground through highly reliable communication equipment. This helps the ground team to be prepared to receive the patient and begin treatment immediately.
