Helicopter transport of emergency patients can be useful if certain restrictions are taken into account. Experience is reported with transport of these patients in the Alouette III. In one situation the helicopter was not useful, in another situation the Alouette III proved to be useful. The helicopter can in no way replace ambulance transport except in remote areas. Treatment during flights is limited. Therefore patients have to be selected carefully. If the patient is accepted, he has to be prepared for flight to avoid unsolvable complications during transport.
