The Attendant and His Environment

  • Edward L. McNeil


This text is intended to provide sufficient practical information regarding the physiological and technical aspects of air transport of patients so that a physician who is familiar with its contents will be able to give sound, practical advice to air ambulance operators, regardless of whether or not the physician has ever flown as a medical flight attendant. More importantly, this book was written for and directed at those physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals who are directly responsible for the medical transfer of patients by aircraft. These responsibilities are varied: from clinical care that requires thoughtful modification of methods that might be applied in a hospital, to coordination of multiple transfer stages, to diplomacy abroad, to the enhancement of an exciting aspect of emergency medical services.
