Product Description

The video reconstructs actual incidents that have all occurred on aircraft, including:

  • Asthma
  • Angina
  • Abdominal pains
  • Diabetes
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Epilepsy
  • Fainting
  • Hypoxia
  • Hyperventilation

Passengers are more likely to suffer from a medical emergency in flight than in normal everyday life due to the physiological aspects of altitude. As pressure in the cabin decreases with altitude, the lungs and blood are unable to use the oxygen as efficiently as at normal atmospheric pressure. 

Certain medical conditions such as diabetes, epilepsy or heart attack can be severely aggravated by reduced oxygen levels.
