Air medical transport is part of an integrated emergency medical services (EMS) system. Field EMS personnel or physicians transferring patients between hospitals should be able to select the proper mode of transportation for an individual patient, depending on the particular circumstances ( Fig 3:1). Effective implementation of all these EMS tools requires well-trained communications and dispatch personnel who can quickly assess the situation at hand and then institute the right EMS response. In addition, the entire out-of-hospital care system must be designed with and medically supervised by physicians well versed in EMS care.

The terms aeromedical and air medical are not interchangeable: air medical refers to the use of aircraft for evacuation of patients, whereas aeromedical refers to the study of the medical effects of flight and altitude on humans.
