Jim - great write up and very interesting question. After having seen many videos of Lifesling recoveries - it does not appear to be quick and easy by any means...especially if the person onboard is small. And I'd not heard of the blood rush issue with vertical lifts. Interesting.

The pick up sail is interesting and seems to be a good design. I assume it rolls the MOB as they're coming up - but still...very cool.
