The large cabin of the Challenger 650 allows to transport seriously ill patients in need of additional high-tech equipment. A large range of devices have already been tested on board and can be used safely:
ECMO (Sorin Lifebox; Maquet Cardio Help)
Impella® heart pump
IABP (Intra-aortic balloon pump)
PIU (Patient Isolation Unit)
For devices not yet tested, a special procedure has been established in order to allow inflight use. Please contact the Operations Centre for further information.
