Mithilesh a newbie in trekking to the Himalayas, was very excited and was looking forward for the same since months. It was a week long trekking plan and things were going pretty much as planned. But things went bad as destiny had planned something else and an accident happened during the trip. Mithilesh was trekking to Stok Kangri Peak and things went awry, he met with an accident, he felled down from a height. The other team members were at a distance, so no one initially realized that he was missing. After sometime his team mates realized his absence and then they started their search. After almost an hour of searching, they found him lying injured. The team established contact with the local hospital and with the help of the hospital authorities, they establised contact with the Hi-Flying team who are expert in air-lifting such patients under critical weather conditions too.
Hi Flying provides various services which includes Air Ambulance, Medevac, Medical stretcher service on the commercial flight, Aeromedical services are some of the facilities available with them. Based on how critical is the condition of the patient, where is the patient located; they decide on what kind of service is to be provided to the patient.
The weather condition was very poor. In this case, it was decided to airlift the patient by using a medical stretcher service accompanied with a medical team comprising a doctor and a nurse. Due to bad weather conditions,it took sometime to reach the location. The condition of the patient was critical, so it was decided to initially get some medical assistance in the local hospital in Ladakh itself in order to stabilize the condition of the patient. Mithilesh was admitted to the local hospital and emergency treatment was initiated. His family members were contacted and his health condition was discussed. The doctor’s said that his condition is slightly stabilized but there was no major improvement. They suggested to transfer him to a better facility as the hospital was located in a higher altitude, so it could be possible that his condition is deteriorating. The family was disturbed but they were also relieved that Mithilesh was atleast safe and has received medical help. The family members wanted him to shift him to Mumbai hospital at the earliest. The team of Hi-Flying initiated their next action plan of carrying the patient from the local hospital in Ladakh to Mumbai. The air ambulance was equipped with all the medical equipment required for safe transfer of the patient. Oxygen cylinders, pressure monitoring, heart rate monitoring machines, required medication as suggested by the doctor were carried during the transportation process. Medical stretcher was used to air lift the patient. One of his team members accompanied him during the travel. The family was advised to stay back in Mumbai rather than traveling all the way to Ladakh which would be cumbersome for them and the weather conditions was also not favorable. The family members initiated their arrangement in the Mumbai hospital and the doctor in the receiving hospital were updated about the condition of the patient and the exact time they would arrive in the hospital by the Hi-Flying team.
The accident was extremely risky but the journey of the patient to the hospital could be made safe because of the expertise and years of experience of the expert medical team of Hi-Flying.
