Life Force becomes first air medical transport provider in Tennessee to offer high flow oxygen therapy capabilities

From the Chattanoogan: Life Force announced its newest capability of offering high-flow oxygen therapy to patients during air medical transports. They are the first air medical team in the state of Tennessee to offer this therapy. 


Robbie Tester, senior director of Life Force said, “High-flow oxygen therapy, primarily used in a hospital setting, helps reduce the need for invasive ventilation. This method of oxygen delivery has been proven very effective and allows patients to receive oxygen while reducing strain on their body to support healing. The ability to offer this advanced therapy that was previously only available inside the hospital setting will greatly benefit our community by providing the right care during a critical time.”


Life Force is the only air medical provider in the state of Tennessee to carry this new advanced oxygen therapy. 


Life Force began operations in 1988 and currently has six bases of operations in Cleveland, Sparta, Winchester, Calhoun, GA, Blue Ridge, GA, and Murphy, NC.
