Germany has activated its Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Flying Hospital airplane to help Italy, France and Spain cope with its cases of Covid-19.
Here’s a peek inside the world’s most modern flying hospital – the Airbus A310 MRT MedEvac
The Medivac plane has multiple features that can also be found inside a typical hospital, such as ventilators, syringe pumps, and defibrillators.
“In times of greatest need, it goes without saying that we stand by our friends…That is why we are now bringing seriously ill patients from Italy to Germany for treatment with our flying intensive care unit of the Air Force. It is an important sign of solidarity. Europe has to stick together.” -Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, German Defense Minister.
The facility also comes with several items including the intensive care ventilator “Evita 4” transport ventilator “Oxylog 3000”, multi-function monitor “Propaq EL106”, two triple syringe pumps “Combimat 2000” and suction pump “Accuvac”
Medical experts have described the plane as the world’s best medevac for coronavirus patients.
