REALITY MEDIC FAQ'S

When should we consider a Reality Medic™?
  • Anytime you are more than an hour from a hospital.
  • In wilderness locations.
  • Long durations in remote locations.
  • The chances are high that there will be serious life threatening injuries.
  • Your production needs to handle all but the most serious injuries and illnesses in the field.
What is a Reality Medic™
... and how is it different from a regular Set Medic?

The Reality Medic™ Division is our most advanced service.  The paramedics (or higher certified) we send are the most experienced and seasoned professionals in our database.  They include both men and women who are accostomed to working in the most challenging and remote locations (Including international). Examples include shows such as Discovery's Naked and Afraid. 

Reality Medics™ go beyond standard ALS protocols and operate under a much broader set of standards specifiacally designed for Remote Action Rescue. See our Protocol Breakdown

In addition to more advance equipment and medications, they have 24 hour access to our dedicated medical director. 

Reality Medics™ are ideal for productions in highly dangerous and extremely remote locations.

How do international productions work?

Reality Medics travel with your cast and crew.  Travel lodging and workers compensation is provided by the production.  Your Reality Medic is, for all intended purposes, a member of your crew and given the same treatment and courtesy as any other crew member. 

Although our medics are essentially part of your crew they still work for and are paid by National Set Medics.

Reality Medics are available 24 hours a day for emergencies and are on duty for either a 12 or 24 hour shift.

Reality Medics provide American protocols and medicines.  When a local doctor is on site, our protocols take precedent over the local doctor for American Crew.  The local doctors' protocols take precedent for local cast and crew.  Of course, the Reality Medic and local doctor work closely together.

What is the benefit of having a Reality Medic™

Our services can save your production hundreds of thousands of dollars!

A minor injury or illness can quickly turn into a serious matter.  Bad for the patient and bad for the production.

More often than not, our treatments keep a crew or cast member in the field and thus eliminating any downtime to the overall production.

More importantly, A Reality Medic is the best of the best.  This gives the cast and crew comfort knowing that in an emergency they will be receiving top of the line American treatments and medicines. What's more is that our Reality Medics have a 24/7 direct line to our medical control doctors.

In many countries, medicines and medical training is sub-par to American standard.

Can your Reality Medics™ be Armed?

Some locations have a higher risk of wildlife threats.  In such cases, our medics are typically armed to protect themselves, the cast and crew.

Do your Reality Medics suture? Administer Antibiotics?

Yes!

Suturing and antibiotics is not a typical treatment done by critical care paramedics in the field but our doctor has included it for experienced medics.

Being so far from the closest hospital means our Reality Medics must do more to keep your patient alive in an emergency.  We are uniquely equipped to do so.

More often than not, our treatments keep a crew or cast member in the field and thus eliminating any downtime to the overall production.

How qualified are your Reality Medics™?

A Reality Medic™ is someone who has spent their medical careers perfecting their skill and knowledge; they are in great physical shape, professional and well experienced in remote medical.  We typically look for flight medics, critical care medics and combat medics.  

These Reality Medics™ have performed most if not all paramedic skills reliably in the field; plus many skill not typically done in the ambulance such as Suturing, antibiotic therapy and recognizing medical illnesses early. 

We get hundreds of submissions for our Reality Medic™ division but only a few qualify.
