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.
First aid kit
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.
AirCare Solutions Group, which provides emergency training, products and services to business aviation and airline operators, purchased Majestic Aerotech, an Olympia, Wash.-based FAA- and EASA-approved repair station for emergency medical equipment.
Health and security assistance provider MedAire of Tempe, Ariz., and UK medical kit manufacturer Aeromedic Innovations have formed an alliance that would allow Aeromedic to assemble MedAire medical kits and distribute them to MedAire’s European clients. Under the agreement, Aeromedic will also provide kit repair and refurbishment services by replacing expired medications and providing real-time inventory management.
