The Role of AEDS in Commercial Airline Operations – A Critical Review of UK Airl
V Johnston
Civil Aviation Authority, Gatwick, United Kingdom

INTRODUCTION: Semi-automated defibrillators (AEDS) are in use on a number of commercial airlines both in Europe and in North America. The critical success factors for outcome are (a) the underlying cardiac rhythm and the pathology underlying it and (b) time from “collapse” to “shock”. Ventricular fibrillation (VF) has been estimated to be the underlying rhythm in approximately 60-70% of cases in sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in public places. However, previous work has shown that in the aircraft environment the prevalence ranges from 10-41%, which may significantly affect the prospect of a successful outcome. METHODS: Data from two UK airlines, one scheduled and one charter, both with worldwide operations were critically reviewed and anonymised.

Eat Wisely – and fly safely
Looking forward to that long-haul holiday? Just make sure that you eat and drink the right things to reduce the risk of DVT. Amanda Ursell has the lowdown for high-flyers.

Do’s and don’ts

DO
Avoid big meals and snacks before taking off when in the departure lounge – it is harder to digest food when flying.

Why do airports treat us with such contempt?
New figures from the budget airlines show fewer of us are flying for pleasure. One writer says the chaotic state of our airports is one of the main reasons.
THE billboard was refreshingly honest: "BAA regrets that because of its contempt for passengers and its general incompetence, you are likely to experience queues a thousand long for security." OK, I\'m making it up about the billboard but not the bit about contempt for passengers, or incompetence.
And, if anything, the queue was closer to 2,000 people.

Beckham warned over flight risks
By Tom Fordyce


David Beckham\'s commute from Los Angeles to London could have a career-threatening effect on his health, according to experts.
Beckham will clock up thousands of air miles if he continues to play for England while with the LA Galaxy.
And aviation health expert Farrol Kahn warned: "It puts him in the high risk category for getting deep-vein thrombosis (DVT).
"That would ruin that leg for life - you simply could not use it again."

Airlines on defensive over their emissions

When Ryanair, the low-cost airline based in Ireland, recently offered European flights for as little as one British penny each way, environmental activists greeted the bargain with more protests than thanks.

“They do not take account the environmental costs which this imposes,” said Liliane Spendeler, secretary general in Spain for Friends of the Earth. “There is an enormous price for the planet, which the airlines do not pay, but which all of us must bear.”

U.S. warning on TB arrived too late
By Elisabeth Rosenthal

ROME: The U.S. health authorities failed to nifty their Italian counterparts that an American tourist with an extremely dangerous form of tuberculosis was staying in a Rome hotel this month until he was leaving the country, Italian officials said Thursday. That time lapse allowed him to leave Rome and fly to Prague and Montreal, potentially exposing dozens of people to an often lethal germ.
