  • Medical simulation (training)

    You can look forward to our extensive experience and ultra-modern simulator technology in our medical simulation (training) . Done directly at DRF Luftrettung’s bases, it teaches you live-saving medical responses and actions, e.g. how to deal with difficult airways. The training also focuses on the ‘human factors’ of interaction. These factors frequently determine whether or not a treatment is successful, just like the intensive debriefings that are integrated into the course and deepen your learning process.

Our expertise in emergency medicine  

Our ambition is to provide the best care possible for the well-being of our patients. Every human life is unique and valuable.  

In over 45 years of emergency rescue and critical care, we have developed an extensive trove of experience and knowledge. We wish to use it to support other mission crews, because we can only achieve the best for our patients when we work together. 

For maximum professionalism on rescue missions 

To meet our high quality standards, we continually enhance the ultra-modern medical technology that we use and the methods that we apply. We also regularly revise our training and professional-development concepts in line with the latest pedagogical and academic findings.  

Take part in our courses and benefit from our valuable tips, our findings from academia and research and our extensive experience.
