All doctors are hospital specialists with post-graduate qualifications. In most cases the doctor will be an anaesthetist with at least 3 years full time experience in this field.
IAS Medical believe that anaesthetists have the unique skills required to manage any in-flight eventuality and they are the most appropriate specialist for intensive care transfers.
Specialists in other branches of medicine such as cardiology, orthopaedics and trauma surgery may also be used when appropriate.
Our nurses have at least 5 years post-basic degree and will possess a higher nursing qualification. All are trained in advanced life support (ALS) and the demands of the air ambulance environment.
We consider it is important to match the skills of the nurse to the requirements of the transfer and we select our nursing staff for each trip accordingly.
