Helicopter Child Patient Transfer System

Helicopter Child Patient Transfer System

For critically ill patients requiring hospital-to-hospital transfers, where the distances involved or the road conditions may adversely impact patient survival, the quickest mode of transport is often the helicopter air ambulance. Helicopter air ambulance providers require the flexibility of being able to rapidly configure the air ambulance to support transfer of patients from infants through to adults.

GVH Aerospace was presented with the challenge of modifying and upgrading an air ambulance operator’s Agusta A109 helicopter interior equipment and patient transfer provisions to support the specific requirements of transferring critically ill children.

GVH Aerospace designed a sled system that can be configured for infants, small children and children up to 16 years of age. This sled system replaces the existing stretcher and adaptor deck and installs onto new supporting structure mounted on the helicopter seat track fittings. The sled can be configured with a Baby Pod II with critical care deployable equipment, or a standard stretcher mattress for small and older children.

The GVH Aerospace medical sled provided a more expedient way of loading patients than the existing system, and reduced the necessity to move equipment for restraint purposes after loading. The system is currently in service and helping save children’s lives everyday.
