Helicopter ambulance. View of paramedics transferring a stretcher-borne patient into a helicopter ambulance (far left). One of the paramedics (centre) is holding an intravenous drip bag, which supplies the patient with drugs, plasma or saline. Air ambulances such as this one provide a rapid response to emergencies in otherwise inaccessible locations. They carry full life- support systems and a complement of medical staff. Air ambulances are usually helicopters, as they are able to take off and land in confined spaces.
