KAC to provide modern medical services onboard
January 23, 2016, 8:35 am

Kuwait Airways announced Thursday that it will equip its new planes with modern medical services, including connecting the plane with a medical system that enables the pilot to follow the health condition of any ill passenger with a medical center in Phoenix, Arizona. The new system follows the patient’s condition and determines his/her treatment possibilities and procedures, Tareq Hamada, deputy manager for engineering service at KAC, stated to KUNA on the sidelines of the 4th Bahrain International Air Show 2016.

Through a linking device that examines the patient’s blood pressure, sugar and heart, a physician will decide whether the situation requires onboard treatment or an urgent landing to save the patient, Hamada added. He said KAC has also equipped the new planes with advanced medical beds for ill passengers that can be installed without needing to remove the plane’s seats, adding that the beds are also automated and can be directed and moved in different angles that are appropriate for each patient.
