VistaJet has worked with partners at RDT, a Philips company, and with MedAire, to be the first charter operator to incorporate Tempus IC2 monitors within its entire global fleet, granting access to medical assistance anytime, anywhere. The monitor allows the VistaJet crew to measure and transmit vital clinical data and images, along with real-time voice and video, safely and directly to MedAire's ground medical team 24 hours a day.
Thomas Flohr, founder and president of VistaJet, said: “The VistaJet crew now has even more resources for them and to offer passengers complete peace of mind with every flight. Monitor information is shared transparently and confidentially with ground medical specialists; it is the best option while not having a doctor present and yet another example of VistaJet's investment in safety and security to protect all those who fly with us in our global infrastructure. All operators with a global program must have access to this technology on board.”
Through VistaJet's secure on-board connection, Tempus IC2 serves passengers experiencing medical problems during the flight, allowing the crew to easily capture important diagnostic information and pass it on to MedAire's medical advisory service, MedLink, for specialist advice and assistance. Direct connection to MedAire health specialists along with vital sign data can further contribute to decreasing personal risks that are often associated with misdiagnosis, avoiding unnecessary and costly medical evacuations or diversions.
Dr Paulo M. Alves, MedAire Global Medical Director, added: “The parameters available when answering a Tempus call are essentially the same as one you would have in most emergency rooms. Tempus IC2 is invaluable when remotely managing a medical situation, providing MedAink physicians at MedAire with the clinical-quality data needed for a better diagnostic impression.”
