airRx is the ONLY point of care App designed by and for medical personnel encountering in-flight medical events while traveling on commercial airlines. Including the 23 most common medical emergency scenarios encountered, flight and cabin crew roles, and medicolegal implications for volunteering to assist.
“There is no formal physician training in medical school in handling in-flight medical emergencies and because many physician volunteers work in subspecialty areas in which they do not regularly see emergent events, they may lack knowledge regarding a specific event. It is essential that every physician who answers the call to assist have immediate access to this information in real time on the plane.”
Dr. Paulo Magalhães Alves
“Planes are one of the most challenging places in which to treat a medical event due to limited equipment and supplies, lack of space and the time lag to reach medical help on the ground.”
