Italy-based fixed-wing air ambulance service Medicalfly has reported on its transfer of a patient with multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) to Madrid, Spain.

MCS is a sensitivity or allergy to a number of different pollutants, such as solvents, perfumes, petrol, smoke and pollen. The complexity of this illness, and the lack of understanding of the condition, meant that the service had to adopt special methods of shielding in order to minimise the presence of potential irritants.

The service said that with these extra measures the patient was ‘comfortable and safe’ during the flight.
