Ever been jetting off on your holidays, and heard the dreaded announcement "Is there a doctor on board?" Ever wondered what are the specific issues - medical, practical, and medicolegal - to be considered when responding to this request? Ever wanted to be better equipped to respond safely and effectively to the next in-flight emergency call?
This new course, led by an experienced Flight Escort doctor and suitable for doctors and health professionals of all backgrounds, looks at the unique challenges faced in assessing and managing emergencies in the air. The aim is not to teach the management of emergencies in general, but how to take your knowledge, skills and training - whatever their level and whatever your background - and safely adapt these to the unique, challenging and fascinating environment of the air.
