MEDEVAC

A MEDEVAC is a military acronym for "medical evacuation."

A MEDEVAC is also a helicopter used as an ambulance. This permits the rapid transport of seriously injured persons, particularly trauma patients, from the scene of the accident to the hospital. The US military pioneered this lifesaving technique during the Korean War.
