#1 Clearly early, but ill informed transport is more survivable than late arriving, interim support transport.

#2 I'm thinking air ambulance lower survival rate is due to air pressure difference from higher ground level air pressure vs. lower air pressure at flight altitudes increasing chances of bleed out.

#3 Who can afford an ambulance? Take Uber.

#4 Air transport seems to be used for more severe injuries and/or inaccessibility by vehicles (which are cheaper to deploy). I'd guess that accounts for much of the higher mortality

#5 What are the odds of survival if the victim drives himself to the ER?

#6 Air ambulance service is an competitive business which may explain why one may use an air ambulance even if one is not needed. Most are owned by private businesses with bulls and debit to pay off. A few are owned by local governments (I.e. funded by local tax revenue) and they tend to make sure the air service is justified before sending them out.

This is a subject that merit serious discussions.
