The new version of the helicopter includes a ventilator, a condition monitoring unit, a respirator and an infusion pump. The device has passed the necessary certification and received approval from the Federal Air Transport Agency.
On Dec. 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. The aircraft can now be used for longer without refueling, and can perform work on a larger area of the region .
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. It is now possible for a single person to load a patient into a helicopter, with the whole process taking less than 20 seconds.
“When it comes to saving patients, including the kids, every minute can cost life,” said Oleg Yevtushenko, executive director of the Rostec State Corporation. “The incubators for newborns, which will now be equipped with the sanitary Ansats, will help to quickly deliver newborns to the hospital. 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”
“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,” said Andrey Boginsky, Director General of Russian Helicopters. “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”
