MedLink AIR flight team members include a critical care nurse and a specially-trained flight paramedic, both skilled in the management of life-threatening emergencies.
Every team member has completed extensive training in medical protocols and advanced skills to care for patients in the air medical environment. A sophisticated communications system allows the team to maintain contact with an emergency medicine physician at Gundersen as well as the referring hospital at all times.
Flight team members are selected not only for the depth of their clinical knowledge, but also for their ability to relate to people. We are committed to ongoing communication with referring physicians, institutions, agencies, patients and families.
