Bengaluru gets first air ambulance with COVID-19 pod

Bengaluru: Despite having thousands of ambulances in the city, many people lose their lives as
ambulances move slow because of the heavy traffic.
There is finally some relief as Bengaluru received its first ever air ambulance.
Keeping the current pandemic in mind this ambulance comes with an equipped German Isolation pod
which will help in the safe transportation of COVID-19 patients.
Though the air ambulance may save lives and make commuting faster, the price of the air ambulance
does not make it affordable for everyone.
ICATT (International Critical Air Transfer Team), India's only air ambulance company has tied up with Kyathi, an aviation technology firm to make this facility in the city.
Chief minister BS Yediyurappa and most of the ministers of Karnataka government including two deputy CMs, health minister, medical education minister and tourism minister inaugurated the Bengaluru-based ICATT Kyathi's integrated air ambulance services at Jakkur Aerodrome on Tuesday.
"During times of emergency providing timely and speedy medical care and treatment is of paramount
importance. The introduction of ICATT Kyathi's Integrated Air Ambulance service will ensure not only quick medical assistance but also high-quality care delivered by senior doctors and paramedics trained in critical care, while in flight,” said the chief minister.
