Our team of highly trained and experienced medical professionals and pilots are always ready to respond to your medical emergency needs.

One of the critical services we provide is ECMO patient transfer. ECMO, or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, is a highly specialized and advanced form of life support used for patients with severe heart or lung failure. Transporting a patient on ECMO requires a high level of expertise and care, and that's where Ferrymed Rescue comes in.

Our air ambulance service is equipped with the latest medical technology, including ECMO equipment, to ensure the safe and efficient transfer of patients on ECMO. We have a team of skilled and experienced medical professionals who are well-versed in ECMO patient care and management during transport.

Our ECMO patient transfer service begins with a thorough assessment of the patient's medical condition and ECMO requirements. We then create a customized transfer plan that includes the necessary medical equipment and personnel to ensure a smooth and safe transfer.

Our medical team closely monitors the patient's vital signs and adjusts the ECMO equipment as needed throughout the transfer. Our pilots are also trained to fly at high altitudes to ensure the patient's safety and comfort during the flight.

  • What is ECMO?

    ECMO stands for Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation, which is a life support system used to temporarily replace the function of the lungs or heart in critically ill patients.

  • Why do some ECMO patients need to be transferred to other facilities?

    Some ECMO patients may need to be transferred to other facilities for specialized care that is not available at their current facility. This may include access to a higher level of expertise, equipment, or resources.

  • What are some considerations for ECMO patient transfers?

    Some considerations for ECMO patient transfers include the patient's stability, the distance of the transfer, the mode of transportation, the expertise of the transferring team, the availability of receiving facility, and the potential risks and benefits of the transfer.

  • What is the role of the transferring team during an ECMO patient transfer?

    The transferring team is responsible for the safe and efficient transfer of the ECMO patient. This includes monitoring the patient's vital signs, ensuring that the ECMO circuit is functioning properly, administering medications and other interventions as needed, and communicating effectively with the receiving facility.

  • What is the role of the receiving facility during an ECMO patient transfer?

    The receiving facility is responsible for providing specialized care for the ECMO patient upon arrival. This may include further diagnostic testing, adjustments to the ECMO circuit, and ongoing monitoring and support. The receiving team should also communicate effectively with the transferring team to ensure a smooth transition of care.

  • What are some potential complications of ECMO patient transfers?

    Some potential complications of ECMO patient transfers include bleeding, clotting, hypoxia, hypotension, infection, and equipment malfunction. These risks should be carefully assessed and managed by the transferring and receiving teams to ensure the safety of the patient.

  • How can ECMO patient transfers be optimized for patient safety and outcomes?

    ECMO patient transfers can be optimized by ensuring that the patient is stable before transfer, selecting an appropriate mode of transportation, using experienced and well-trained transferring and receiving teams, communicating effectively between the two teams, and carefully monitoring the patient throughout the transfer process. A thorough risk assessment should also be conducted to identify and mitigate potential complications.
