Overweight Patient Transfer in an Air Ambulance flight

HI Flying - Air Ambulance International has the capability to transport overweight and even obese patients – those with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of over 30.

Transfer of Morbidly Obese Patient

Hi Flying - Air Ambulance International offers overweight patient transport service from its base in the United States, as well as from hub in cities around the world, including Hong Kong, Singapore, and Dubai.

Transporting and transferring patients in various medical conditions who are also overweight can be difficult. It often requires specialized equipment, experienced professionals who understand the best methods for transport, and a care team prepared to assist. Even a routine medevac flight can become complicated when an overweight patient is involved. Not every medevac and other medical transfer services are equipped to handle this level of care.

Hi Flying - Air Ambulance International is equipped to handle any patient needs, including overweight patients. Whether a patient is in need of emergency medevac services or non-emergency transfer via commercial or charter flights, we can help.

Our team of experienced professionals coordinates every detail of each medical transfer. They start by obtaining detailed medical records for each patient that allow them to plan for proper care. Then, they help patients and their doctors or loved ones choose the right form of transport, whether that is an air ambulance flight, a chartered medical flight, or even a commercial flight on an aeromedical stretcher. Our team then handles every aspect of the travel planning, including booking ground transportation, obtaining immigration and customs clearances, coordinating with transferring and receiving medical centers, and assigning a medical director and care team to the flight.

The care team may include a doctor and a nurse, a nurse and a paramedic, or a doctor, nurse, paramedic, and RT team. Each member of the care team is visa-ready for emergency transfers, as well as multilingual, with ICU/CCU experience and advanced experience with medevac flights. Hi Flying - Air Ambulance International’s staff also includes a medical insurance expert who is prepared to help each patient and their loved ones ensure that they receive the compensation they deserve for their chosen transportation method.

Our fleet of air ambulances and private aircraft are all equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment, including oxygen, emergency medications, and aeromedical stretchers, all designed to ensure maximum comfort and care during each flight.

Hi Flying - Air Ambulance International offers a range of medical transportation services, each designed to fit the needs of patients with a variety of medical conditions and specific care requirements. Whether an overweight patient needs air ambulance transfer, an emergency medevac flight, or an escort for a commercial flight via aeromedical stretcher, we can help plan, coordinate, and oversee their flight from start to finish.
