Airborne medical specialist MedAire (Booth 6543) has released a new series of improved airborne medical kits that were developed by the company’s medical products review board. The latest kits draw on the experience from more than 100,000 inflight medical events. The new range was created with ease-of-access and ease-of-use as key features for both crew and passengers.
Updated versions of MedAire’s Aircraft First-Aid Kit and Aircraft First-Aid Kit Rx products are now available in the U.S., with global availability planned for early 2013. Key updates to the Aircraft First-Aid Kit include medications and equipment to address and improve medical diagnostic accuracy in flight. MedAire also introduced an updated emergency medical kit that works in conjunction with the Aircraft First-Aid Kit 1.0. The MedAire Aircraft First-Aid Kit 1.0 meets or exceeds FAR Parts 91, 121, 135; EU OPS 1.745 and Canada AOHS Section 9.8.
