CCATT delivers critical care in the air
U.S. Air Force Critical Care Air Transport Team members check on a patient prior to an aeromedical evacuation mission aboard a C-17 Globemaster III aircraft from Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, to Ramstein Air Base, Germany, Aug. 8, 2015. The 455th EAES’ CCATT is a three-person, highly specialized medical team consisting of a physician who specializes in an area of critical care or emergency medicine, a critical care nurse and a respiratory therapist. The CCATT is charged with providing critical care to the sick and wounded as they are moved thousands of miles onboard U.S. cargo aircraft to receive full-time care elsewhere.
