Emergency on board
A passenger on a long-distance flight from Hong-Kong to Frankfurt/Main, Germany, suddenly suffers from unpredictable chest pain and dizziness. Via satellite, the crew immediately initiates a telephone conference with the doctor on duty at med con team. As the flight cannot return to the departure airport the doctor, considering the patient’s condition, proposes how to treat the patient in the present emergency situation and recommends to continue the flight. Three hours later the plane lands at the Rhein-Main airport. Further medical support on the ground, including immediate transport to the University Hospital in Frankfurt after landing, has already been organized in advance.
