Who knew?

When I went to Australia I learned about how they have the Royal Flying Doctor Service that flies into the outback in medical emergencies since it is so remote. Well, I just found out that we have an air ambulance here in the United States. They can fly critically ill/injured patients from hospital to hospital. They make domestic flights as well as international. You can even have your personal physician on board. Their planes are well equiped with all the medical equipment and supplies they might need. This is a pretty cool service really. Especially for those who may be traveling and need to get back to their local hospital.
