Sky Talk Radio Aviation Podcast #3, Airline Medical Emergency
Episode three talks about what happens in the airline business when someone gets sick or has a serious airline medical emergency. Airline emergencies are more frequent than most people think. In fact crews are trained on a regular basis on what to do when a passenger or crew member has a serious medical issue. Chances are you may have been on a flight where someone had to have medical help whether it be minor or major interaction. Most times there are doctors, nurses and paramedics flying on almost every airline flight. Inflight crews are also trained to give immediate first aid and aircraft are equipped with medical kits. This podcast gives a little insight on what happens when a passenger has a heart attack and the flight has to divert.
