Buddies,

In view of an increasing number of fatal accidents along expressways across India, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation has cleared plans that will allow helicopters to carry out medical evacuation by landing near accident sites.

According to DGCA officials, a helicopter ambulance will carry two trained pilots, technical crew, and medical professionals along with life-support equipment. The plan requires the operating company to set up a control room which will receive accident-related information via a toll-free number. A few companies have shown great interest and are already exploring the options to import helicopters for this purpose.

As of now, ambulance services pvt /govt is nothing but eyewash. Biggest flaw is lack of qualified doctors. Most of the emergency medicines are allopathic, and docs appointed on ambulances are Ayurved or homoeopathic because they are available at cheaper cost as compared to allopathy docs. During the first 'golden hour after the accident' patients receive treatment based on trial & error method or no treatment at all from these docs.
In schools, an English teacher is not allowed to teach Maths or a science teacher is not allowed to teach history but our being a125 cr nation, life is least important thing, we get allopathic treatment from Ayurved or homoeopathic doc at most critical moments of life!


I hope aviation department takes care of this issue else air ambulances would be nothing but a faster mode of transport so that the accident scene gets cleared faster. To get qualified & eligible doctors they need to spend funds.
