Lufthansa German Airline´s PTC is an innovative concept to transport critical patients, that usually would have to be transported by Ambulance Jet, on long-haul flights.
The PTC consists of a seperate compartment that is installed on passenger aircraft (Boeing 747, Airbus A340 and A380) containing a fully equipped Mobile Intensive Care Unit, including Ventilators, Monitoring, Resuscitation Equipment and so forth.
In cooperation with Lufthansa we take care of all the neccessary steps to provide a smooth operation including medical clearance, booking, providing the appropriate Physician and Assistant, and also the corresponding Ambulance transfers by Ground- and Air Ambulance.
On ultra-long-haul routes the PTC - sometimes in conjunction with an Air Ambulance Jet - often comprises the best solution with regard to cost effieciency and patient`s safety and comfort.
