3. BARIATRIC PATIENTS
In recent years, obesity which is a result of unhealthy nutrition and health conditions and can lead to a life-threatening medical condition has been affecting the %20 of Turkey’s population. To diagnose a patient with obesity, the weight of the person should be 50 or more kg than her or his ideal weight. At the most unexpected times, accidents may occur and when it comes to a bariatric patient, treatment is harder. The situation gets more complicated when the patient is far from home. We always take precaution during the transfer when it comes to the bariatric patients. For a safe transportation process, a logistic plan is done considering the physical condition of the patient. For instance, the door of the plane, stretcher and types of equipment are chosen considering requirements. NITRO HB 6220 bariatric patient bedstead is one of the special types of equipment.
WHAT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED FOR BARIATRIC PATIENTS?
During the flight, pressure changes can weaken the adipose tissue and release nitrogen in the blood and can cause fat emboli. To prevent it, %100 oxygen is placed on the patient for 15 min prior to transport to minimize the indications and handle it, we always work with team members which are specialized in their field. From beginning to the end, we consider every problem that can occur before the transportation and give you a qualified service as AvioneJet.
4. GERIATRIC AIR AMBULANCE
Illnesses can knock everyone's door at every age, but for old people, the chances are higher. Geriatric population includes people between the age of 65+ and they form %8.3 of Turkey’s population. Sometimes, there may be a competition with time when it comes to elderly people who mostly suffer from medical problems. AvioneJet serves for geriatric patients who would like to transfer from hospital to another one or having medical problems during a trip. The seriousness of the patient’s medical condition is important for us as much as yours, thus, AvioneJet understands the importance of the physical and psychological condition of the patient and performs the transfer with the best medical team.
Geriatric patients can suffer from chronic conditions such as congestive heart failure, respiratory insufficiencies which require more oxygen consumption. Besides, they are affected more than other patients by altitude changes, therefore oxygen is readily available to the patient and can be quickly administered by the medical crew members.
During the flight, some medications can be applied to prevent stress and anxiety, but geriatric patients are more sensitive and there might be a reaction to previously used medicine. Medical team avoids from any medicine can cause a reverse reaction on patient’s conscious.
Geriatric patients mostly have more sensitive skin compared to other age groups, thus, medical team pays special attention to the patient during transportation. Primarily, the flight crew does a comprehensive skin assessment before the flight to prevent any skin breakdown. Concerns of the patient and companions are decreased by this way.
Another problem may occur during transfer is dehydration risk which is more possible for geriatric patients. Dehydration is prevented by fluids given by orally or intra venally. Most of the conditions are considered to prevent any complication, overall, your patient will be in good hands.
