When you or someone you know has a brain injury, receiving medical attention is critical to saving lives. If you choose to use air transport to a hospital or medical facility, here's our guide to receiving medical flights with a brain injury.
If you need transportation assistance for a patient with a brain injury, REVA can help. Medical air transport is an efficient way to get patients to facilities to receive proper treatment fast. REVA makes requesting a medical air flight simple. A case manager, caregiver or patient can contact REVA to schedule a flight. Whoever contacts us for a flight will provide one of our flight case managers with the necessary information to ensure a safe flight for the patient.
When we receive the request, we'll need to know where the patient is and where they need to go, if a physician or doctor requested the transport and other essential information.
