Oct 05, —. The well-equipped medevac helicopters that transported injured troops in Vietnam became the model for today’s air ambulance services in the U. The war in Vietnam helped the U. It used UH-1 “Huey” helicopters as air ambulances, manned by two pilots, a medic, and a crew chief.
Flying into active landing zones to pick up wounded soldiers was a dangerous job. Just over a third of medical aviators became casualties in their work.
Medevac helicopters were shot down at more than three times the rate of other helicopter missions during the war. Dust Off crews, the teams that manned the helicopters, had the ability to provide basic medical care en route. They could administer IV fluids, apply bandages and tourniquets, and make sure that soldiers were still breathing.
Such en route care was a change from previous wars, when helicopter fleets were mainly equipped to transport the wounded to medical facilities. Sometimes he and his crew would get so overwhelmed with casualties that they wouldn’t even use the litters, or stretchers, onboard the helicopter.
It’s designed for six. We could barely get off the ground.
I thought, ‘I might have a record here,'” Eberwine said. In a long, narrow country where road acidente were often dangerous, air evacuation was a lifesaver.
The military had a network of combat medical centers, support hospitals, and even ships where patients could be flown. Back in the U. Then they rush you to the hospital.
This method was known as “scoop and go. In the s traffic fatalities peaked at around 55, per year, far higher than today.
MAST allowed military aviation units to help civilian communities with helicopter transport during emergencies. The program relied on a rescue format similar to the one used during Vietnam. MAST offered the military a way of keeping its air crews trained while giving civilians a better chance of surviving serious accidents.
George Wunderlich says that news coverage of Vietnam medevac operations changed what Americans thought they deserved from emergency medical care.
Leaders of civilian medical operations began deploying the same kinds of helicopters and first aid equipment. MAST is still active, though it downsized with the Persian Gulf War and the development of civilian air-ambulance services. Partly because of that, traffic fatalities last year numbered around 40, roughly a thirty percent decrease from the s.
Medevac mission, Balad Air Base, Iraq. The C Globemaster III is capable of rapid strategic delivery of troops and all types of cargo to main operating bases or directly to forward bases in the deployment area. It is also capable of performing tactical airlift, medical evacuation and airdrop missions. The first documented use of an air ambulance occurred during the Siege of Paris in Records kept by the French at the time indicated that, if casualties could be evacuated by air within six hours of injury, the mortality rate among the wounded would fall from 60 per cent to less than 10 per cent – a staggering reduction!
During the First World War air ambulances were tested by various military organizations. Aircraft were still primitive at the time, with limited capabilities, and the effort received mixed reviews. The exploration of the idea continued, however, and by an organized military air ambulance service was evacuating wounded from the Spanish Civil War for medical treatment in Nazi Germany.
The first recorded British ambulance flight took place in in Turkey when a soldier in the Camel Corps, who had been shot in the ankle, was flown to a hospital in a de Havilland DHH within 45 minutes.
The same journey by land would have taken 3 days to accidetne. In Britain, sick passengers were ferried by air from the Western Isles of Scotland to the mainland in the early s. The first such flight to be recorded was on May 14, when a fisherman suffering from a perforated stomach, with consequent risk of peritonitis, was flown from Islay to Glasgow’s Western Infirmary in a DH Dragon owned by Midland and Scottish Air Ferries.
In Switzerland, with the increasing interest in winter sports during the early post World War 2 years, the use of air ambulances evolved from the increasing difficulties experienced ofidlco mountain rescue work. Initially fixed-wing aircraft were used, landing medical teams with equipment as close as possible to the injured parties so that rapid first pedistria treatment could be applied prior to evacuation.
To overcome a lack of suitable landing sites close to the incident in mountainous regions, it was even at one stage proposed to parachute medical personnel with equipment and sledges into the rescue area. The first documented medevac by helicopter occurred during the second World War.
Carter Harman, could carry only one pediztria but, over Aprilfour return trips were made. Following the end of the Second World War, the first civilian air ambulance in North America was established by the Saskatchewan government in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Back in the United States, saw oidico creation of the Schaefer Air Service, the country’s first air ambulance service. Para-medicine was still decades away, and unless the patient was accompanied by a physician or nurse, they operated primarily as medical transportation services. The first dedicated use of helicopters by U. While popularly depicted as simply removing casualties ofdiico the battlefield which they didhelicopters also expanded their services to moving critical patients to more advanced hospital ships once initial emergency treatment in field hospitals had occurred.
The wounded were transported on basket stretchers attached to the top of the landing gear on the outside of the small helicopter Figure They were covered with blankets in a nearly futile effort to maintain body heat and prevent wound accidenre.
It pedistria estimated that more than 20, injured soldiers were evacuated by helicopter. While there were some technological advances in medicine during that period, the improvement is largely attributed to use of the helicopter to evacuate patients to definitive care more quickly. The external litter, however, did not allow for medical care during transport.

Affectionately known as the Huey, this aircraft was large enough to hold patients inside, where medical personnel could begin treatment during the flight to a field hospital. The mass deployment of these aircraft as medevac units reduced the average delay until treatment to one hour. The ability to carry patients inside the aircraft was a key element in the reduction of mortality and morbidity. Military medics performed procedures previously done only by physicians: This care, coupled with the initiation of specialty hospitals for the treatment of different types of injuries, resulted in a reduction in the mortality rate to 1 death per casualties.
The first known civilian application of a medical helicopter was in in Etna, California. Bill Mathews, a businessman, started a helicopter service to ferry patients for Dr.
Granville Ashcraft, the town’s only physician. The town druggist also used the helicopter to deliver accidnte during emergencies. Byin Vietnam, the use of specially trained medical corpsmen and helicopters as ambulances led U.
This conclusion inspired the first experiments with the use of civilian paramedics in the world. Two programs were implemented in the U. Three helicopters were purchased through a federal grant and located strategically in the north, central, and southern areas of the state. Upon termination of the grant, the program was considered a success and each of the three communities was given the opportunity to continue the helicopter operation.
Only the one located in Hattiesburg did so, and it was therefore established as the first civilian air medical program in the United States. This was an experiment by the Department of Transportation to study the feasibility of using military helicopters to augment existing civilian emergency ofidiico services. These programs were highly successful at establishing the need for such services. Also, in the state of Maryland received a grant to purchase Bell Jet Ranger helicopters and started one of the nation’s first medevac programs.
The four helicopters, manned by paramedics, were strategically based throughout the state for quick response to emergency situations. When they were not carrying patients, the helicopters were used for law enforcement and traffic control.
On November 1,the first permanent civil air ambulance helicopter, Christoph 1, entered service at the Hospital of Harlaching, Munich, Germany. The first civilian, hospital-based medical helicopter program in the United States began operation in Anthony Central Hospital in Denver, Colorado. In Ontario, Canada, the air ambulance program began inand featured a paramedic-based system of care.
The system, operated by the Ontario Ministry of Health, began with a single rotor-wing aircraft based in Toronto. An important difference in the Ontario program involved the emphasis of service. Baker in as the first air-medical service in New York State and one of the first in the country. From day one, Mercy Flight WNY has maintained its independence of any hospital and is currently one of only a handful of remaining not-for-profit providers.
The wccidente of other US programs are operated by either for-profit organizations or hospitals. Patient being loaded in the early 80’s. Helicopters continue to play a vital role in miltary medevacs. UH Blackhawk helicopters have been used extensively in Iraq and Afganistan to medevac wounded soldiers from the battlefield. While both countries feature harsh desert environments that take their toll on helicopters, Afganistan’s mountain peaks as high as 18, feet further complicate pedatria mission.
Because accidemte the vast, mountainous terrain, evacuating casualties often extends beyond what doctors call the “golden hour”: So medics pediatriz begun doing emergency procedures inside helicopters that would normally wait for ER doctors.
The United States has some operations whose services are paid for primarily by the patients and their insurance companies. As well as Switzerland, France, Austria, Italy Scandinavia and the former West Germany all have very successful versions of the helicopter-based EMS, the benefits of which have in some instances been particularly well-documented.
In Germany for example, there is now a network of helicopters which has evolved over the past twenty years to cover the entire country.
Statistics which have been gathered over this period of time show: The European Union has published new safety rules on air operations, including new provisions to better support the mental fitness of air crews.
The Regulation includes the following safety measures: As an additional safety barrier, alcohol testing of pilots and cabin crew for all European and foreign airlines who fly into the territories of the European Union, has been added.
Alcohol testing is already a well-established practice in some Member States and with this Regulation alcohol testing will now be extended to all EU Member States within the next two years. European airlines will perform a psychological assessment of their pilots before the start of employment.
The Regulation on mental fitness of air crew includes a two year transition period to allow airlines and Member States to prepare for the Regulation and to set up the necessary infrastructure to comply with the Regulation.
