Etihad medically sound

ETIHAD is to install new state-of-the-art technology on its long and ultra long haul aircraft which can monitor the condition of passengers who display signs of sickness that might require immediate medical attention.  The Tempus IC system allows cabin crew to gather vital information about a passenger’s health quickly and efficiently.  The data covers a wide range of the passenger’s vital signs including blood pressure and an electrocardiogram.  It also allows the crew to take photo imagery.  That information is then transmitted to a ground-based medical team.  Following their advice the crew will take a decision about what to do next for the passenger and the flight.  Etihad will introduce the Tempus IC technology, designed and manufactured by UK-based RDT, on its Airbus A340 and Boeing 777 aircraft and then subsequently across the remaining long haul fleet.
