- Learning Outcomes
Graduates of the paper will be able to:
- Apply their knowledge of the effects of the aeromedical environment on patient physiology, and on a variety of clinical pathologies, in order to anticipate the potential impacts on patient care during the aeromedical transfer.
- Recommend specific clinical actions and modifications to clinical care to address the potential impacts of the aeromedical environment, substantiating their recommendations by reference to the evidence in the literature.
- Recommend the appropriate utilisation of aeromedical retrieval in the broader patient transport context for a variety of clinical pathologies, substantiating their recommendations by reference to the evidence in the literature.
