The evolution of aeromedical evacuation capabilities help deployed medicine take flight
Capt. Lisa Causey, 379th Expeditionary Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron second flight nurse, cares for a litter patient on board a C-130J , April 2, 2008. As an Air National Guard member deployed from the 183rd Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron in Jackson, Miss., she, along with four other medical specialists and a team of pilots and loadmasters, made a 15-hour flight to four cities in Iraq and one air base in the Middle East. They airlifted 19 patients, 16 of whom were ambulatory, to the Persian Gulf, where most of the patients were transferred to a C-17 headed for Germany.
