Pics from the 3rd Flight

These are pics from the one day flight I did, the one with the 12 year old. You can see what our patients look like when strapped into the helicopter. We use several different medications to keep them unconscious and paralyzed, mainly to avoid further injury, or re-injury of what the Surgeons just fixed. We are breathing for them, with a small portable ventilator strapped onto the stretcher with everything else. You can see the door gunners in another photo, and what it looks like out the back door, which remains open during the flight. The last photo is during a temporary stop to get fuel on the way back.
