The medical-technical and organizational problems of use of airmobile medical complexes in accordance with the scientific methodology of sanitary-aviation evacuation are considered. It is noted that the results of joint special flight tests and use of airmobile medical complexes, which include modules for airplanes and helicopters, have shown their sufficiently high efficiency and reliability in the provision of specialized medical care to patients in serious and extremely severe condition.

The conclusion is drawn: for further use of airmobile medical complexes it is necessary to make amendments to the instruction “On rendering of medical care to patients and victims during air medical evacuation with use of medical modules in Armed Forces of the Russian Federation” – and to define number and types of experts in each air medical team, and also the order of interaction of crew members and experts of air medical team during carrying out sanitary aviation evacuation.


Key words: air medical team, airmobile medical complex, airplane medical module, helicopter medical module, manual for testing of aviation equipment, medical-technical requirements, program of testing, sanitary aviation evacuation, special joint flight tests, technical specification
