- very low low low earth orbit
Whats CAMETS, its not a abbreviation I know.Non CAMETS Don't have the room
Our 212 had all the bells and whistles seats seven - This set up beats a Hughes 500 with blistered doors.Height limit for patients? Looks like a pretty short platform. Where does equipment go? My trauma bag would never fit in that space in front of the seat, and there doesn't appear to be any room on a bulkhead or overhead. I wouldn't count on a nurse, certainly not a doctor. There's no room to do anything, or for the equipment necessary to do it with. I can't see anything being done beyond maybe limited bleeding control and possibly airways and a BVM for respiration, though I don't see a place to put it. Possibly an AED if you could find a place for it. Can't see anything beyond a medic being needed here.
CAMETS is a US minimum standard for crew and equipment standards - tools and crew for HEMSWhats CAMETS, its not a abbreviation I know.
Looks quite practical for those on a budget.
The shield to keep patient limbs out of the pilot space/ of the control column might need to go to the instrument panel. Will the centre part of the cyclic column foul it or a flailing limb?
I know this is the budget EMS version but
Wheres the O2 going?
Do they need somewhere to hang IV's
Do they need a 12v power system (or ****** AC power).
Where is flight nurse's bag of stuff going with inflight access (Squirrel cheek style bulged door maybe?).
If you get into an O2 system, Oz's CASA's AC 21-39 has some bits not in the FAA doc's.
Edit: I see they have updated MG6 since I last used it, it is now closer to the CASA doc than it was.
All true. But the sad fact is that even if the wounded/sick person would have been very happy (and objectively better off) to take the express helicopter ride now rather than wait for the deluxe ride in an hour, if things take a bad turn there will be someone at the door of the next of kin explaining how those profiteers with the "inadequate, uncertified" helicopter killed their loved one.Just hang medical equipment bags on the rear bulkhead.
As for meeting any certified medical standard .... even in the First World, most wounded construction workers would be happy to reach a hospital before they die of hypothermia, blood lose, etc.
It's a rescue bag that straps the victim like an angry potato - A body bag for the living with tie downs
