PATIENT STORY #2
IN THE FACE OF INNUMERABLE OBSTACLES (Maldives)

 

The Situation
When you are on holiday in a beautiful and romantic setting, the last thing you expect is a medical emergency. But that was exactly what happened to James O’Reilly who was on his first trip to the Maldives. Walking on the beach in knee deep water, he suffered a very deep cut and started to bleed profusely. By the time he was taken to the Indira Memorial Hospital on Male, he had lost a lot of blood and was in shock. The tissue-deep laceration needed 12 stitches.

 

What EMA GLOBAL Did
EMA GLOBAL was contacted and after an evaluation with James’ treating doctor during which it was revealed that he was diabetic, a decision was made to evacuate him to Singapore.

 

EMA GLOBAL To The Rescue
Just about 3 hours after EMA GLOBAL received the first call, an air-ambulance was airborne, with a medical team comprising an ICU-trained doctor and a nurse. Arriving in Male about 6 hours later, the medical team was whisked past immigration and taken to the hospital to assess the patient. James was still weak from loss of blood, running a high fever but his voice was barely audible. But at least he was stable so the team proceeded to prepare him for the evacuation. The flight to Singapore, with the patient under the constant care of the medical team was uneventful. As soon as the air-ambulance landed at Seletar, James was transferred to a waiting road-ambulance and admitted to the Gleneagles Hospital.

 

The Outcome
James was discharged barely four days later and repatriated to London with just a nurse escort. He confided to the medical team which took care of him that he is preparing to resume his disrupted holidays very soon.

We are sure the staff at the resort he was staying in will lay out the red carpet for his return!
