Is travel insurance the same or better?    

Travel insurance is good for a client that goes on vacation to come back home in case of a medical emergency

When clients travel for medical reasons they are predisposed to a higher % of complications. What would happen if that medical emergency occurs on the plane  on their way back home? Flying immediately after or within a few days of a surgery can cause some very serious complications . The combination of high altitude and sitting for long periods of time can cause  potentially fatal conditions. Less seriously, you also put yourself at risk of swelling and infections

 

1-The reason for having a medical escort in the first place is to recognize the client's deterioration early, and prevent an emergency from occurring. By the time a flight attendant recognizes a case of severe oxygen desaturation, damage may already have occurred.

2-A trained escort who knows the client's history and initial assessment can better maintain the client's condition, as well as providing comfort on an ongoing basis.                 

 

Can Client do this themselves? 

Many family members want to escort the client themselves, this can be challenging at best and could endanger the patient. Lacking the knowledge for adverse reactions to flight, such as oxygen deprivation, fluid intake and flight sickness can create undesired results. Our flight nurses have received training in altitude physiology and what the effects of flying aboard commercial aircraft will have on patients. 

 

Where do they go and what do they travel for?      

We provide our services worldwide and our clientele varies between business, medical and pleasure travel. For example, we escorted a 68 y/o female suffering from Hyponatremia(low sodium levels in the blood) to Costa Rica for cosmetic dental surgery. There was also a trip to Mexico for a gentleman receiving cosmetic facial surgery and ended up suffering an MI(heart attack).

 

Can a client travel while pregnant/or with a baby?

For the safety of the mother and unborn child, Medical Escort Services Travelers may only be transported until the 27th week of pregnancy (through the second trimester). If farther along, we can help expectant parents find the best medical care at the location. Under many circumstances, if the baby is born with complications, we can arrange transport for both mother and child and dad to the hospital of their choice
