Russia (bbabo.net), - Associate Professor of the Department of Anesthesiology, Resuscitation and Emergency Pediatrics of St. Petersburg Pediatric University Irina Kuznetsova provided qualified air assistance to a passenger of the St. Petersburg - Krasnoyarsk plane. The woman felt unwell and began to choke.
Irina Kuznetsova went on a business trip to Birobidzhan. But since there are no direct flights there, I flew first to Krasnoyarsk. After two hours of flight, the crew members addressed the passengers through the speakerphone. A doctor was urgently needed to help a 50-year-old woman.
It turned out that the fellow traveler was flying to a sick mother. However, she herself recently suffered a coronavirus. The air began to suffocate, the pressure dropped sharply, there was a panic attack. On board there was a first aid kit and the necessary drugs, medical oxygen was available. Therefore, Irina Kuznetsova managed to stabilize the woman's condition. The plane landed safely, and an ambulance was already waiting for the passenger at the gangway.
- Since I am a pediatric anesthesiologist, I often have to deal with a situation where parents become ill while the children are being treated in the intensive care unit. Because of the experiences, there are often panic attacks with difficulty breathing, for me this is a familiar situation, ”commented Irina Kuznetsova.
After that, she went to the place of her business trip - to the city of Birobidzhan.
