“ If you look at land paramedics they are similar to what you see in ER's. In a flight transport environment we provide ICU level care and sometimes a little higher. We can start those therapies in the community and then transport.We have a set scope of practice we can start and also have access to the physician standing by.I love my job, I get to help people, see cool things and meet lots of people. It is a very rewarding job.”
