Saving Lives in the Sky

Saving Lives in the Sky

The challenge. Extreme weather conditions. Nearly inaccessible locales. Long-distance transport. Few medical scenarios are as perilous and demanding as helicopter med-evac operations. For Lafayette, La.-based PHI, a leader in air medical transport, the company’s mission has long been to carry out these highly critical emergency evacuations with the highest level of safety, both for their crews and their patients.

A key component to accomplishing that mission has been to equip their crews with the absolute best, most reliable medical technology available. Pelican BioThermal provided fl ight paramedics with Series 4-EMT carriers whose extended passive thermal control allows them access to blood in a safe state when it is needed most.
