Types of Personnel Who Fly With The Patient are Flight Paramedics. Certified Flight Paramedics possess skills very similar to our flight nurses. Often, Paramedics make excellent choices for transporting patients because of their quick assessment skills, and level of emergency training. Paramedics may administer medications, provide suctioning, deliver oxygen, monitor blood sugar levels and many other skills.
All Paramedics are required to maintain certification in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Basic Cardiac Life Support, and Special training in Aviation Medical Escort.
