Air Methods uses human cadaver labs for training on procedural skills and anatomical knowledge. The goal is to empower the flight crews with the confidence needed to perform medical procedures in high-intensity situations, supervised by our medical directors.
Air Methods is raising the bar for clinical research. Our research is not only impacting lives in air medical, but has been widely accepted in prehospital emergency care and emergency medicine.

Placing a tracheal tube is the most complex procedure performed in air medical practice. After Air Methods identified the factors that contributed to unsuccessful intubation, it created the HEAVEN criteria in 2015. A life-saving trauma care prediction tool, HEAVEN is now established as the gold standard process for airway management.
The Ground Air Medical Quality Transport (GAMUT) Quality Improvement Collaborative is a database for transport teams to track, report, and analyze their performance on transport-specific quality metrics by comparing it to other programs. According to the GAMUT Benchmarking, Air Methods’ clinicians outperform the industry in six key metrics, including first-attempt tracheal tube placement success.
Air Methods mitigates clinical risk through a variety of monitoring and reporting tools.
Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) includes a voluntary audit every three years to establish that we meet and exceed industry-wide standards. These standards address not only the quality of patient care, education of medical personnel, and medical equipment, but also operational and safety concerns. Achieving CAMTS accreditation is a mark of excellence for a critical care transport program. The Air Methods’ standard is for all CBS programs to earn CAMTS after one year of service.
