A new compact medical kit on El Al passenger aircraft



A new compact medical kit on El Al passenger aircraft



Aviation Space and Environmental Medicine 71(1): 77-80



El Al was one of the first international airlines to introduce a medical kit (MK) on board its passenger aircraft. Based on our own experience and considering the recent regulations of the European Joint Aviation Authority (JAA), the items are updated. The design of the kit is arranged so that all the medications with a short "kit life" are placed in a compartmented tray and can be removed in toto and replaced by a new tray. The equipment and medications in the MK are listed on the form which the physician on board is required to complete, checking the items used and filing a report. The contents of the MK will evidently be upgraded once ECG monitoring, transmission facilities and automatic external defibrillators (AED) are put on board.
