This specification provides the format and guidelines for producing a catalog of current resources of air medical transport units, showing the patient care capability of each, in standard form.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F30 on Emergency Medical Services, this specification was withdrawn in 2007 with no replacement because this document was developed to provide status with a format to input to a national database of air medical assets. No federal agency stepped forward to facilitate that activity. Therefore, the committee believes that this document is no longer necessary.
1.1 This specification provides the format and guidelines for producing a catalog of current resources of air medical transport units, showing the patient care capability of each, in standard form.
1.2 This specification applies to all the air transports involved in patient care that meet one or more applicable ASTM medical transport unit specifications.
1.3 This specification incorporates only the information that is considered essential for use by the planners during an emergency. The intent is to provide information on what is available, what level of care it can provide, where it is, and the earliest it can respond, so that the most efficient use can be made of each unit, in accordance with the emergency plans.
1.4 Information contained in the unit's operations manual, such as the weight and balance calculations for the "Specialized Medical Resources" listed in Appendix X1, is not included in the catalog but it will be available to the planners, on request.
