“A Flying ICU ~Kido-Eisei Unit~”

Launching the Cyber Defense Unit (provisional name) Preparatory Office

When the Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron performs medical treatment on the aircraft, the “Kido-Eisei Unit” which is the intensive care unit (ICU)-style module with sound-proof, electro-magnetic shielding, lighting capabilities, three beds, and various medical devices is used. There, the Squadron is able to perform monitoring, nursing, and emergency care at the same level as ICU in the cargo compartment of a C-130 transport aircraft.

If the critically ill or severely injured patients cannot receive appropriate care in the local area under the situation of emergency or disaster, the Squadron will provide the necessary care to ensure the vital and functional prognosis during the long-distance transport by air, including using the fixed-wing aircraft.
