A bit unfair putting images of British air ambulances on here, all are charity funded. And in the case of the Wales Air Ambulance, the decision to allocate is a clinical one based on those requiring critical care on scene, made by a critical care practitioner who also considers if allocation provides a time benefit over road transport to the nearest ED, WAA also provides an elevated level of care with physician level care provided on scene. All this free at the point of access to whoever needs it!!

If this happens to you and your life is effectively destroyed, you CAN avoid homelessness and starvation by instead going to jail for sneaking onto a hospital roof and pushing a helicopter off the side of the helipad. They weigh less than a hatchback and are very easy to push once you take the brakes off. Plus the doors usually don't lock. If enough people do this, there will be no profit incentive in destroying lives and the problem will be remedied.

Wow, after this 22 minute video, I have become more informed, changed my outlook on life, and deeply desire the government to become more involved in healthcare. Not only that, but I plan on viciously attacking anyone that disagrees or even questions my new found beliefs while simultaneously stubbornly refusing to give any consideration to any other source of material that isn't a droning voice over of stock footage. Fuck capitalism! Satire aside, how were those "academic" studies able to assess divergent outcomes? Where were they getting example cases that exceeded the time limit (the 60 minute window)? If the study is like "we examined cases wherein patient group A took 10 minutes to get to trauma care, B took 30 minutes, and the control took 20 minutes," I'm not surprised they got inconclusive data. Also, Wendover, are you going to release an updated version of your How To Stop A Riot video with all the collected data from the spicy sit-ins from 2020?

Army Medic here, and it's really interesting to see the 'outside looking in' perspectives. I've worked clinical, transport, logistics, and of course the on-site injuries, so it's always intriguing to see what outsiders think of how we operate. Second note, the logistics noted here are really about the US emergency medical system. Not just the money trail/costs, but the actual transport reasons/setup. The emergency protocols aren't the same everywhere. During my time working in Europe, I learned that they often prefer to treat on site of injury/accident rather than transport ASAP. Trauma doctors are often on call with ambulances, and will come straight out to work the situation on the ground.

Having loose finance regulation for a human right such as health care is just plain greed. Personally I don't have a problem paying higher taxes towards free health care, I couldn't imagine the mental well-being of a recovered patient slapped with a massive medical bill they could never afford. At least with most bills you can stop paying and stop receiving the service, but you can't jump out of an ambulance

I’ve been the patient in the air ambulance. In my case it was directly from the scene to a near by hospital. It was a SAR case. I am Canadian and still I was sent a bill from 2000$. But I’m not complaining it was money well spent. Unfortunately I have no memories of the event.

For everyone saying that the American healthcare system is fucked, I would say simply "there is no such thing as a free lunch". Speaking as an EMT, EMTs, paramedics, and especially helicopter pilots and flight nurses do not want to and most likely will not work for free. So the money that pays them has to come from somewhere. Free healthcare isn't free, you'll see a rise in taxes, or if you have free healthcare, you already have that rise in taxes. While I agree that free healthcare would be great, it wouldn't really be free, and I would rather have the money taken from my paycheck be kept for myself. Also, air ambulances are expensive, which you would expect from flying in a helicopter. It sucks, but there's not a lot we can do about it. I know there are people who will say "tax the rich", and while I agree, that's more difficult than it sounds without overthrowing the government.

As a physician, I just want to correct a misstatement made by Wendover - most decisions made to transfer a patient to higher or lower trauma center are made by the nursing supervisor. The decision is occasionally made by surgeons or specialists when equipment or specialties or not available, but typically the decision is made by hospital administration that controls the staffing levels. This is almost always a RN who has many years of experience. And while RNs don't have the Hippocratic oath, they share the same ethos as entire medical team (from physician all the way down to LVN, medical assistant and radiology techs). So whoever is in that supervisor role has to pit the hospital's needs against the patient's needs at times - typically those orders come down from a CEO who has an MBA - you know which way that goes - market forces and all.

I'm a flight medic. Have been going on nearly 8 years. This video made good arguments. This video made bad arguments. I have nothing to do with billing. What I do know is when we get the word we are wheels up to the unknown. What I do know is that our equipment is expensive and always needing to be upgraded in order to properly care for the critical. We risk a lot every time we are wheels up. We do perform a majority of inter facility transfers. This is to ensure the patient is receiving the best care. This could also be for a patient that is walkie talkie and only needs a lift. I definitely don't have the answers. What I do know is that healthcare cost money. Innovative healthcare, breakthrough treatment protocols and advancing technology cost money. We also need to remember that profit is not a bad word and that private companies in healthcare doesn't mean it's bad for the patient or the system.

If there’s no profit to be made there’s no incentive to do a good job, quality drops significantly when you have the government socialize it. Why do you think all of the best doctors, best surgeons, best medical schools, and the worst injuries are almost always transferred here. If the medical institutions had no competition, America wouldn’t have made most of the worlds major medical breakthroughs. Everyone’s only worried about the price tag. I do think there should be a base level of insurance available for everyone because I know people struggle to pay for medical insurance, which also makes no sense since if you have a full time job the employer is legally required to offer you a health insurance plan. My point: I’m not supposed to a free or reasonable insurance available for everyone, but I am supposed to *socialized* healthcare. There’s a reason America is on top. In terms of results, not cost.

I’m a flight nurse in Texas and I hate how the industry operates and wish it was government run. No one should go broke because of medical bills in my opinion. I would like to add some things you left out. Air ambulance crew are usually the most advanced providers on the scene of an accident and have capabilities that can help improve outcomes. For example, we have blood, a ventilator, and medicine pumps. Not all ground crews have these capabilities. Also I’d like to point out that some low level trauma hospitals do not have ICUs, they require immediate transport for their trauma patients. The hospital next to my base is a level 4 and does not have an ICU and the doctors will call us to help with the resuscitation. On a positive note, while it is not always the case, the county I work in covers the cost of the flights for their residence. Lastly, Air ambulances do more than trauma, I fly stroke and heart attack patients to comprehensive facilities all the time. These are mixed to, some are scene flights and some are Interfacility. This video is well made but leaves out a big part of what air ambulances do and that is non trauma medical flights. A lot of rural hospitals do not have cath labs or neurosurgical capabilities for clot retrieval on a stroke patient, these are extremely time dependent medical issues.
Ahmed Abduljalil
Ahmed Abduljalil 11 kun oldin
there are essentially three type of trauma patients with relatively different outcomes. type 1:patients who sustain immediately life incompatable traumatic injuries such as decapitation or large open skull fractures with gross damage to brain structures. These patient unfortunately can not be saved and might only be transported to a hospital to be pronounced dead on arrival. Type 2: patient with significant traumatic injuries that are life threatening with a window period where immediate action needs and must be taken to preserve life such as penetrating chest injuries, penetrating abdominal injuries, axial skeleton fractures or limb fractures with risk of major blood loss. These are the time sensitive patients that needs to be transferred to the nearest emergency center with emergency medicine physicians where immediate corrective action can be taken to preserve life. Type3: patient who sustained significant trauma but no immediately life threatening condition exists. However many of which are likely to die within the few coming days as a result of trauma related infections or multi organ failure. Such patient need to be relocated to higher trauma centers with continuous care to provide the best supportive care possible in order to preserve life.

I know it’s not the focus of this video, but why did you give doctors a pass on this? We know that doctors receive kickbacks and other incentives from the pharma and medical device industries.

I live in rural Missouri and I for my level two hospital we have a Air ambulance but the its name is Life flight or MedEvac and to point out that the names are different than what you thing Life Flight is a normal person get air lifted form the call and trans ported to a level 3-4 hospital now if they need a level 5 they then will be ground transported once they are stable enough but on the other hand MedEvac is a survival flight meaning that the patient is close to death and they need a hospital asap and then that's when your quickly assessed and put in the helicopter and for my home town hospital it cost 60.550$ once left the helipad including the landing on the call and the trans port to hospital so its more like $85.550-$95.550 now for the ground ambulance its about $23.000 or more as we don't have but one ALS but we have more BLS ambulances and we have a hospital that does not do good with trauma or cardiac related problems such as hart attack and that's when the helicopter steps in and I studied how many times a day it flew out and its average flights a day is 65 times in one day now at night its only 45 flights so yea. -that's my huge ramble

Even if the golden hour principle is false, Blood loss still can be affected by time, more liters of blood could be lost. Almost everywhere in medicine, it screams "faster = better", because it is.

I live in a town of 2,700 in a county of 10,000. There is a hospital here & it has a community funded chopper (free to patients) to get people to larger, more specialized hospitals & trauma centers. We can also purchase a roundtrip $100 ticket on the private jet owned by one of the large private owned companies in the county to get to the nearest metro if it isn't an emergency situation. We can purchase these tickets for any reason really but if someone with a medical appointment wants the same seat, you can get bumped to a different day. It's why the tickets are super cheap for executive level travel. We also have community grants for hospital bills. I've had mine completely forgiven twice.

Where I live, Air ambulance cost to patient: $0. In fact it's actually cheaper here to use an air ambulance than a ground one. The ground one will charge $385. The helicopter will charge nothing. For this, the government pays $7.2 million per year to cover 3 full time helicopters from 3 different bases hundreds of km apart. Last year that covered 1325 flights. Total cost to the patients: 0, cost to the government: $5434/flight (to be fair, operating the air ambulances does cost more than that, but the non-profit organization running the service also fundraises through donations and running a lottery. Their total budget for the year was about 4 times the government contribution) The dollars quoted here are also worth less than the US dollar.

My advice as someone who has worked in billing for a air medical company....if you are conscious, don't agree to air transport. Which is easy because most of the time you are not given a option. Don't sign anything and don't pay the bill when it comes. After a while they will either A) settle for a far cheaper amount or B) they will take you to court to have your wages garnished. That sounds scary BUT go to the court date. Argue that you never agreed to or was given the chance to deny the air transport service. You were never told of pricing or you were never of sound mound during the time to make that decision (like given narcotic pain medication or sedation). The majority of the time, IF YOU FIGHT IT, the company is forced to settle the debt for pennies on the dollar or forced to write the debt off and be unable to collect.

Here in Switzerland most Air Ambulances are run by a non-profit foundation of which 40% of the population are patrons (~44 USD a year). The Rega does alpine rescues as well. Patrons don't have to pay rescue flights when they're not covered by insurance. The Rega was established in 1952.

I'm a firefighter in rural canada, to our nearest trauma center is 50 minutes.by road (lights and siren's) add time to package them up or cut them out of their car plus the time up to 20 minutes to get on scene. In canada air ambulances are more of a mobile ER as they are staffed with a doctor pilot and copilot so they can get doctors to the accident to start administering care before they even leave the scene. I think the issue is the USA and how it is managed sorry...
