ISAPL Rescues a 23 yrs young foreign national from Kaza

🎖Young foreign national girl. Stuck in Kaza Valley of Himachal Pradesh. 72 hours of turmoil ends.
Today we Air Rescued someone out from KAZA (Spiti Valley of Himachal), suffering High Altitude Sickness and Gastro infection. . Youngsters embark, without acclimatization.
We rescued her thru Helicopter to a safe place. Air lifted to Manali hospital. Finally, ISAPL brought her by Air Ambulance to Delhi for Super Specialty Medical treatment. While we were concerned about her health and life. ISAPL was in the midst of a bad-weather chaos every 4-5 hours. The Air Ambulance (Chopper) movement were curtailed / diverted / stalled multiple times. Thanks to our Pilot of Helicopter (Air Ambulance) for his resilience, experience and empathy. Thanks to the Medic team who infused enough of care, affection and confidence into her.Privacy Air view Del Ambu 2 Del Ambu 4

😖Cheapness prevails- Air Ambulance services

This was the reason for me starting the ISAPL:
“Poonam Jain, a former Diplomatic mission employee for 20+ years, was consumed by the idea of bringing in a compelling change in the Medical Emergency response sector that suggested her to leave her glass-ceiling cushy job and be the first lady entrepreneur. To her astonishment, she found there are no transparency and ethics in this industry and a medical emergency is ‘milked’. Country doesn’t have any guidelines or control mechanism. It was a completely un-organised industry, if we call it so.”

And here is a visible bad news:

🤔Delhi-based firm running air ambulance service dupes six of Rs 41 lakh😢

Just imagine the plight of those patients who were left high-dry-traumatized-cheated-???

Few reasons I could gather:

  1. There are no guidelines for Air Ambulance operators.
  2. The market is ofcourse replete with ‘companies’ who have very high budget for PPC / Google Ad Words/ Digital Marketing. Search for ‘Air Ambulance’ and you will know…..
  3. Indian clients look for the ‘cheapest’ Air Ambulance.
  4. Most transactions happen in quick ‘Cash’. And lots of ‘commissions / referrals’ to the mediators.
  5. Compounders impersonate a Doctor on an Air Ambulance
  6. Individuals are running the Air Ambulance co, with just a security guard
  7. India in itself doesn’t generate institutional business of Air Ambulance. The patient transfer by Air is very sheepishly ‘controlled’ by the Admin of hospitals. In few cases, the head of hospital’s Emergency department has side business of Air Ambulance Transfers.

ISAPL is pretty happy serving small, global institutional business; ethically.
(I am currently at New Zealand, overseeing an Air Transfer of a Psychic patient.  It is good to audit my own business.)

Air Evacuation and other options

A person in distress is an emotional event. The Medical Emergency is of exigency. There are many facets to the support required. The relatives expect emotional support. The person needs timely medical attention. While the concerns of the family and friends are important, the professional prefer to focus on the patient. Air Ambulance is an option.

The Medical Evacuation needs to be arranged with the lightening speed. At times, the access to patient is difficult due to terrain, weather or geopolitical constraints. And thus speed and swiftness has increased significance. The patient condition warrants split-second Medical movements. Over the years, the Road ambulance and road accessibility has improved significantly. Nowadays, evacuation thru Road is far more convenient and safe. Although, it takes longer, but the time is utilized by the medical escort team perform small tests and also provide temporary medication to the distressed. So now the Road Ambulance is a turning into a steady, economical and dependable method. (more…)
