Air Trek understands the challenges of safely transporting Bariatric patients. We have considerable experience with transporting patients weighing up to 800lbs, stable and critical or ventilator dependant.
Bariatric patients often face prejudice, embarrassment, and lack of understanding. Morbid Obesity is a disease that effects a growing population. Air Trek is a pioneer in Bariatric Air Ambulance Transportation!
Our Cessna Citation II jet has some unique features that make it an optimum aircraft for these types of transports.
- It has a wide, cargo door which makes the boarding process much less stressful for the patient
- We have a center mount stretcher for the patient’s comfort
- One family member can travel with the patient
Our staff’s experience with Bariatric transfers set us apart from other companies.
We require 24 hours notice for scheduling a Bariatric Transport. Each of our Bariatric flights are closely monitored by both the Medical Director, Dr. Paige Kreegel and our Chief Pilot, Mr. Wayne Carr to ensure the safety and extra care that these special need patients require.
Air Trek partners with experienced ground ambulance providers to care for and assist our team with our Bariatric patients while en-route to and from their respective facilities.
We offer a transport that offers the patient both safety and dignity!
