Discussing medical options at 25,000 feet

Senior Airman Nathan Boyer and Master Sgt. Karen Ridge discuss options to treat and take care of a simulated patient. The 932nd Airlift Wing’s Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron ran various checklists aboard a packed and busy medical practice training flight on July 21, 2018. They flew aboard a C-130 aircraft, provided by the 910th Airlift Wing. After taking off from Scott Air Force Base, Illinois, they listened to a "simulated patient" describing his injuries. Together with 1st Lt. Liz Erdman, 932nd AES flight nurse, and Senior Master Sgt. Tonya Hupp, AES superintendent, the Airmen reviewed Air Force Instructions covering medical issues. The aeromedical training featured interaction and communication between medical personnel and loadmasters taking care of equipment aboard the plane. (U.S. Air Force photos by Lt. Col. Stan Paregien)
