    DRF Christoph Thüringen Upgades to H145

    DRF Luftrettung, June 12, 2019 - The most modern helicopter currently used in civil air rescue, the H145, is now taking off with the DRF Luftrettung team in Bad Berka.

    Christoph Thüringen, formerly an EC145, is also the only 24-hour ready-to-go intensive-care ambulance transport helicopter present in the state.

    Just how important it is for the nationwide medical care in the Free State was shown just a few days ago when the crew from Bad Berka set off with the "new" Christoph Thüringen for their first assignment.

    This was for a man in Apolda, who was suspected of having a heart attack. The patient, in his early 60s, had to be taken to a suitable specialist clinic quickly and gently by the county seat, which was also known as the "Bell City" due to the long tradition of bells. Therefore, the helicopter DRF Luftrettung was needed as the fastest possible means of transport. Immediately, pilot Franz Ahollinger started the engines of the red and white H145 and flew with emergency doctor Dr Karsten Oschatz and emergency paramedic René Heimbürge.

    After a few minutes, Christoph Thüringen arrived at the hospital in Apolda, Ahollinger, and set up the DRF Luftrettung machine on the clinic's heliport. The ground-bound colleagues had meanwhile brought the infarct patients there. "Our ambulance doctor then took him directly to the ambulance and supplied it further", says Franz Ahollinger.

    After the man had been taken to the helicopter, Christoph Thüringen took off again and the crew from Bad Berka flew in just seven minutes to the University Hospital in Jena. There, Karsten Oschatz finally handed him over to the medical team in the emergency department, which immediately initiated the further treatment steps.
