Hospital tests Pafford’s emergency flight time
In late September, a test flight was made from the parking lot of the Northern Louisiana Medical Center to a hospital surgery suite in El Dorado, Ark. According to John Lee with the NLMC, the flight time for the 50-mile trip was 22 minutes. Since the addition of interventional cardiologist Dr. Michael Langiulli, NLMC has teamed up with Pafford EMS and Pafford Air One.
With the ever-growing number of interventional cardiac cases, NLMC and Pafford have set forth procedures to provide medical care to patients in extreme emergency situations.
