Flying Hospital

MacDill Air Force Base, Fla. -- For the airmen of the 63rd Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron, their jobs make the difference between life and death. Their mission is to transport wounded troops from combat airfields to advanced care at modern hospitals. In order to provide their patients with the best care possible, they regularly train on board aircraft. Here, they are simulating care for a patient's cardiac arrest.
