Ultrasound, role in Aeromedical Retrieval in Australia
Aeromedical Retrieval Equipment
There are many aspects to consider when selecting medical equipment for aeromedical retrieval. The use of contemporary clinical monitors and biomedical devices which are small, lightweight and
reliable allow critical care interventions prior to and during aerial transport. As medical science progresses there are more products and devices available to assist with diagnosing, monitoring
and management of patients in the retrieval situation.
