Safe transfer of patients with infectious diseases

COVID-19 patient transports of the Malteser Air Ambulance

Safe transport in unsafe times

The current coronavirus pandemic leads to a particularly high demand in specialist patient transports. Overloaded hospitals in specific regions, as well as insufficient intensive-care or treatment capacities on site may make it necessary to transport patientes with COVID-19. Transporting highly infectious patients  in critical condition requires comprehensive measures to protect the patient and the medical staff alike, however.

While ground transport across long distances is often not feasible and transfer by helicopter is expensive and dependent on the weather, we can transport your patients quickly and safely in an ambulance aircraft.

We transport patients in a closed patient isolation unit.

Advantages of the patient isolation unit

  • Safety by permanent negative pressure
  • Inlet and outlet filters
  • No restriction in continuous treatment of the patient

Technical equipment

10 ambulance aircrafts with full intensive care equipment, such as

  • Hamilton T1 intensive ventilation device
  • Zoll X-series monitoring
  • Mobile I-STAT blood gas analysis
