Actual or suspected infarctions are one of the most common reasons for flight diversions. With more elderly passengers travelling and human organisms being subjected to increased strain while flying, the number of on-board medical emergencies will continuously rise.
To assess if a suspected cardiac medical emergency is time critical or not is a challenge wherever it occurs. Lacking comprehensive in-flight ECG data, makes it close to impossible for any physician to tell, if a life-threatening infarction is present or if a diversion can be prevented. Attaining reliable 12-lead ECG data and conclusive medical feedback swiftly is crucial for pilots’ decision-making process. Misled cases may cause harm to passengers and impose high cost, knock-on effects in flight schedules, lawsuits and compromise safety reputation.
CardioSecur Aviation 12+ lead ECG technology was specifically designed in cooperation with airlines and their carefully selected focus groups. The result is striking in its simplicity and technical sophistication. Using the system is “kinderleicht” and affords practically no training with crews. CardioSecur runs on iOS and thereby integrates seamlessly with existing airline emergency processes and ground medical service applications.
Over years of successful onboard operation, CardioSecur has officially proven to prevent unnecessary flight diversions and increase passenger safety. CardioSecur Aviation closes the diagnostic gap on board and supports cockpit and crew from take-off to landing.
After a successful introduction of the CardioSecur Aviation 12-lead ECG on Lufthansa’s A380 fleet in 2018, the airline deployed the system to its entire long-haul fleet. In cooperation with the ISOS MedLinkTM service all CardioSecur ECGs are evaluated by means of seamless ground transmission. This allows for analysis of infarctions and any type of arrhythmia. The CardioSecur technology enabled Lufthansa to increase passenger safety, prevent unnecessary re-routing and trigger justified medical diversions due to its unrivalled ECG data quality and ease of use
