Critical care patients that have advanced life support needs travel in an advanced air ambulance. An advanced medical facility onboard an aircraft is a cross between an intensive care unit and a coronary care unit. In emergencies, patients are transported for time-sensitive operations by an air ambulance. Men and women often need to be transported to a facility that can save their lives.
An ambulance can be basic life support or advanced life support. There are even specialties such as Advanced Cardiac Life Support. Ground ambulances have to transport patients to and from hospitals. So, if a patient needs to be transported a short distance (within 300 miles) in an emergency situation, a helicopter is usually used. Helicopters are often able to land at hospitals, cutting out the ground transportation.
