Please note the view expressed in this post are those of the member posting and not necessarily of the BBGA


MedAire’s Global Response Center is located in Phoenix, Arizona and receives over 300 calls per day from aircraft all over the world.   The MedLink team will be available to share their knowledge with NBAA attendees, including leading causes of in-flight medical events specific to Business Aviation.

NBAA members are invited to visit the MedAire booth to meet some of the MedLink medical team, including Dr. David Streitwieser, MedAire’s MedLink Medical Director. The MedLink team offers a 5-minute cholesterol screening with the cholesterol test results reviewed privately with attendees.

More Americans are flying than ever before.  At the same time, an aging population means many passengers are taking to the skies with underlying medical problems. The result is an increase in in-flight medical events, including both crewmembers and passengers. High cholesterol can be an indicator of health issues, and will show no symptoms, highlighting the importance of getting cholesterol levels checked regularly.  MedAire offers this service to NBAA attendees as part of their commitment to preventative care to avoid in-flight events and increased awareness of potential health risks.

Visit MedAire’s Booth N3510 for a complimentary test at NBAA BACE, Oct 10-12, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Located in a level one trauma hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, MedLink is a unique facility taking calls 24/7 from aircraft around the world.   The MedLink unit is housed in the newly constructed and state-of-the-art emergency department at Banner University Medical Center.

MedAire offers tours of MedLink, but members cannot always make it to Phoenix. For the first time NBAA show attendees can visit MedLink without leaving the booth through a short virtual reality tour available in the MedAire Booth N3510, October 10-12, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
