Summary of "The Strategic-Aeromedical-Evacuation-System of the German Armed Forces : Long-distance air transport as a challenge for intensive care nurses."

This article presents the German Armed Forces Strategic Aeromedical Evacuation system. The following factors are described in detail: the path of alert, the used aircrafts, the medical equipment, the medical care personnel with its associated training as well as the aeronautical and medical issues. This military system for long haul intensive care transport offers many medical possibilities in critical care repatriations from deployment areas, as well as disaster relief missions. It has been successfully proven in numerous military and civil operations and continues to have high recognition among all military allies until today. Different priorities and readiness levels build the base for flexible use of various aircraft types and associated personnel, so that almost every scenario can be covered. The ever-changing tasks and needs of the German armed forces require constant adjustment of this air transport system. For the specialist nurse the intensive care of a patient during air transport is a technical and physical challenge.
