The Russian Helicopters holding company of the Rostec State Corporation will equip the updated Ansat medical helicopters with complexes for transporting newborns. The device has passed the necessary certification and received approval from the Federal Air Transport Agency.
A new medical module, which is used in Ansat medical helicopters, has been supplemented with incubators for newborns. The module has a modified layout, adapted to unified stretchers, gurneys, and other equipment, thanks to which the patient’s transportation has become more convenient: in the process of transferring a person on board, there is no need to shift and reconnect life support systems. Now it’s possible to load a patient into a helicopter by one person, the whole process takes less than 20 seconds.
“When it comes to saving patients, including the kids, every minute can cost life. The incubators for newborns, which will now be equipped with the sanitary Ansats, will help to quickly deliver newborns to the hospital. The new version of the helicopter includes a ventilator, a condition monitoring unit, a respirator and an infusion pump. The new design makes it possible not to disconnect the patient from the life support devices during loading, which increases the speed and safety of transportation” said Oleg Yevtushenko, executive director of the Rostec State Corporation.
The module is manufactured at the Kazan Aggregate Plant, it has passed all the necessary certification and is offered to customers as one of the options.
“The approval of the Federal Air Transport Agency significantly expands the range of application of the new medical module MS-A for the Ansat helicopter, now it will be possible to transport patients of absolutely any age. The design bureau of Kazan Helicopters continues to work in this direction, in the context of a pandemic, the certification of an infectious box for a new medical module is especially relevant – this issue will also be resolved in the near future” said Andrey Boginsky, Director General of Russian Helicopters.
Ansat helicopters carry out rescue services in various regions of the Russian Federation, the geography of their use is constantly expanding. The modern program for the development of sanitary aviation in Russia has been implemented since 2017 and is now part of the National Healthcare Project.
On December 29, the upgraded Ansat-M helicopter took off for the first time with an increased flight range – up to 800 km with an additional fuel tank, which is especially important for medical evacuation, as it allows to perform work on a larger area of the region without refueling.
