We continually explore ways in which we can collaborate and integrate services to provide more effective and efficient healthcare.
CRITICAL CARE AIR TRANSPORT TEAM (CCATT)
The Critical Care Air Transport Team (CCATT) is a unique, highly specialized medical asset that can create and operate a portable intensive care unit (ICU) on board any available transport aircraft during flight. It is a limited, rapidly deployable resource and a primary component of the Air Force’s Aeromedical Evacuation (AE) System. The CCATT team is a three-person medical team consisting of a physician specializing in an area such as critical care, pulmonology, surgery, etc., along with a critical care nurse and a respiratory technician. The team is experienced in the care of critically ill or injured patients with multi- system trauma, shock, burns, respiratory failure, multiple organ failure and other life threatening complications. The complex, critical nature of the patient’s condition requires continuous stabilization, advanced care, life-saving invasive interventions during transport, and life or death decisions.
