Peli BioThermal Pledges Support for Air Ambulance Week

Vital lifesaving missions by UK Air Ambulance Charities highlighted during annual event in September 2020

Peli BioThermal, the global name in temperature-controlled packaging, has pledged its ongoing support for UK Air Ambulance charities during Air Ambulance Week 2020.

Helping to raise money and awareness, the company continues its collaborations with an increasing number of air ambulance crews UK wide who are transporting vital blood products via the company’s Crēdo ProMed™ transport bag in a bid to help save additional lives.

Several air ambulance charities currently carry life giving pre-hospital blood products, protected by Peli BioThermal’s pioneering temperature controlled shippers, on board their helicopters attending multiple missions.

Air ambulance charities carrying blood in Peli BioThermal’s Crēdo ProMed products include Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) Great North Air Ambulance Service, London’s Air Ambulance Charity and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

This year’s Air Ambulance Week, which runs from 7 - 13 September, #AAW2020, is staged annually to highlight the critical lifesaving care provided by crews every day. The Covid-19 pandemic continues to have an impact on fundraising activities, which many air ambulance charities rely on to keep their helicopters flying on emergency missions.

During the designated Air Ambulance Week donations are being collected at Peli BioThermal key locations to help support crews carrying out lifesaving missions on a daily basis and the company has announced it will match all donations made by its fundraising employees.

An increasing number of UK Air Ambulance Charities are utilising the Crēdo ProMed transport bag. The high performing medical transport bag is designed to protect health sciences products, ensuring lifesaving blood products can be used at the scene of emergencies, delivering critical pre-hospital care. Being able to give a pre-hospital transfusion at the scene of an incident could be a lifesaving intervention for patients suffering significant bleeding and blood loss.

Paul Terry, Peli BioThermal’s Director of Sales EMEA, said: “We are proud to support the important work of the air ambulance charities. Many of which are increasingly deploying our innovative products on board their aircraft to support their life-saving missions. The benefit of pre-hospital blood, protected in the Crēdo ProMed en route to scenes of trauma, continues to help save numerous lives both here in the UK and globally.”
