VistaJet expands onboard medical, safety support for global customers

KUALA LUMPUR: Global business aviation company, VistaJet has worked with RDT, a Philips company, and MedAire, to be the first charter operator to embed Tempus IC2 monitors within its entire Global fleet, granting access to leading medical support anytime, anywhere.

According to a statement, Tempus IC2 is a vital signs monitor with integrated telemedicine, designed for use in remote medical emergencies by non-medical experts.

Having RDT’s Tempus IC2 monitors on VistaJet Global flights provides reassurance and assistance for aircraft passengers and crew.

The monitor allows VistaJet crew to measure and transmit vital clinical data and images, alongside real-time voice and video, securely and directly to MedAire’s ground-based medical team 24/7, anytime, anywhere.

Via VistaJet’s secure onboard connection, Tempus IC2 expedites time to care for passengers experiencing medical issues during flight, allowing crew to easily capture important diagnostic information and transmit it to MedAire’s medical advisory service, MedLink, for expert advice and assistance.

The direct link to MedAire health experts along with the vital signs data can additionally contribute to the reduction of the personal risks which are often associated with misdiagnosis, avoiding unnecessary and costly medical evacuations or diversions.

All aviation companies have a duty to passengers to provide comprehensive medical back-up and VistaJet’s adoption of the latest medical teleconsultation services will secure a more convenient and timely care, minimising disruption to travel plans.
