COVID-19 Exclusive: COPD and Private Jet Flight
Some medical conditions make it difficult to travel, especially when you need to travel long distances by air. One of the conditions that can negatively affect the flight process of the passenger is COPD. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a lung disease that can be explained as the air that is breathed into the lungs cannot be expelled easily. For those suffering from this condition, air ambulance can often be the safest option when traveling alone.
Traveling by air can be a risk for people suffering from COPD. Low oxygen pressure in the cabins can cause complications in the lungs of passengers with respiratory problems, especially those living with COPD. Patients with COPD have lower respiratory reserves and gases expand during air travel, making it difficult for the patient to get the oxygen they need. Therefore, when hiring a private air ambulance, it is very important to indicate whether the patient or accompanying persons have been diagnosed with COPD before in terms of increasing the oxygen support reserve from emergency support equipment.
