Medical Emergency Notes:
Depending on the patient’s condition, the injured may often be brought directly to the clinic by private vehicle, as it can be the quickest transport option. If Emergency Air Evacuation (AirEvac, Inc.

During this time it is best to put together the patients info, diagnosis, ID for passing through customs, decide who will go with them, and notify family, personal health care provider and HMO or other insurance company in the U.S.
