Ed. This is an AW 139, not ORNGE’s exact ship.
ORNGE’s top doctor has checked out the medical interior of the air ambulance’s multimillion-dollar helicopters and found a disaster waiting to happen.
Dr. Bruce Sawadsky, in a report written Monday, calls the cramped interior of the brand new AW 139 helicopter a “high risk environment.”
His findings? Tough to do CPR. Hard to prop up a patient who is having difficulty breathing. Takes too long to load and unload a patient. Risky, too. Many equipment malfunctions.
