A consensus statement from Australian aeromedical retrieval services
In this article, we summarise a new consensus statement from Australian aeromedical retrieval services that provides an expert opinion on the assessment and management of acutely agitated patients in remote locations. It also outlines recommendations for patients who require aeromedical evacuation to allow for inpatient medical care, high-level psychiatric care and admission, which are usually only available in regional centres and major cities. The full consensus statement is available on the Royal Flying Doctor Service website.*
