Adventure Doc paramedics provide a higher level of care than traditional paramedics. Their advanced training in remote and expeditionary medicine allows a wider array of diagnostics, procedures and medication usage, including antibiotics. From advanced wound care to diagnosis and management of common illnesses to trauma, our paramedics add a new level of comfort and security to travelers and adventurers. Through the paramedic’s ability to directly contact our medical control physician, our paramedics can discuss your case in real-time with our expedition doctors.
The services of our expedition paramedics are highly customizable and can be tailored to your individual needs. We employ a wide range of specialist paramedics who each bring their own areas of expertise to our travelers/patients. From expertly trained dive paramedics, former military tactical EMS paramedics, wilderness guide paramedics, executive protection paramedics or a multitude of other past experiences, our paramedics each place their unique skill set at your disposal.
Our paramedics are also selected for their ability to provide unobtrusive medical care and fit well with all types of travelers. Your paramedic provider travels with you 24/7. While always near-by they are not intruding on your trip or activities.
