ICATT Services

Planned Air Transfer

Our Air ambulances are converted Flying ICUs!

We have dedicated Helicopters and Fixed wing aircraft, strategically placed across India and abroad to minimise response time. We can transfer a critically ill patient in the shortest possible transit time, continuing Intensive therapy enroute by using International levels of protocols and processes. We also provide our services for transfer of the patients via commercial airlines.

The core strength of ICATT is the quality of its medical staff. They are all ICU/Anaesthesia trained doctors who have further undergone our robust induction programme including Trauma Management, Resuscitation (ALS/ATLS/ACLS) and Aviation Simulation Training.

We have dedicated Helicopters and Fixed wing aircraft, strategically placed across India to minimise response time.

Our Air Ambulances are equipped with:

  • Oxylog3000 Ventilators
  • Continuous real-time Cardiorespiratory Monitors
  • Biphasic Defibrillators/ AEDs
  • Oxygen Banks
  • Emergency Major Haemorrhage Packs with Blood and FFP, IV Resuscitation Fluids
  • Essential resuscitation drugs as per ALS and ACLS guidelines

In special circumstances, based on the clinical need, we can mobilise our Airborne ECMO Team with the skills and capability to initiate and transfer a critically unwell patient on our own ECMO to a tertiary or a receiving ECMO facility.

Our flying ICUs are also capable of transferring a patient on IABP (Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump) with trained doctors to monitor and intervene if necessary.

With these capabilities, we are in a position to transfer critically unwell patients in the shortest possible transit time with continued Intensive Therapy enroute, without which the patient is not fit for transfer by any other means. With a combination of helicopters and fixed wing aircrafts improving our penetration, these transfers can be done from the remotest of places to any part of India.

India’s strategic location and availability of advanced, affordable healthcare acts as a catalyst to attract patients from neighbouring countries such as Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.

With our capabilities, we are able to provide:

  • Advanced Level Critical Care (Level 3 including ECMO and IABP) enroute
  • Bringing in Medical Tourists both, Domestic and International, who would otherwise be deemed not fit for travel by Commercial Airlines.
  • We also offer our Air Ambulances to be used for transferring small groups of Medical Tourists as planned transfers for elective procedures and investigations.
  • Our services include providing trained medical staff to escort patients or groups in Commercial or Chartered Aircrafts.

Foreign visitors coming into India and neighbouring countries for business, tourism, sports and adventure among other things constitute a large cohort of international medical repatriations.
We have been transferring critically ill European tourists from India to the UK for the past year for our associate, Airmedical UK Ltd.

Our medical staff, carrying out these transfers have qualifications and training recognised by the EURAMI (European Aero Medical Institute) to be appropriate and mandatory for the level of care being provided in transit.

    1. Oxylog3000 Ventilators
    2. Continuous real-time Cardiorespiratory Monitors
    3. Biphasic Defibrillators/ AEDs

    5. Emergency Major Haemorrhage Packs with Blood and FFP, IV Resuscitation Fluids
