An announcement was made on the flight seeking help for medical aention. The flight route was from New York to Heathrow carrying our very own Dr. Monika Mahajan. Hearing the distress call, she immediately responded and came upon another passenger who had developed a myriad of symptoms including chest pain, difficulty in breathing, vomiting and low blood pressure.

Dr. Mahajan managed to keep the patient stable for two hours with oxygen and emergency medicine on the flight. Dr. Mahajan took a quick background of the medical history and discovered that the patient had a history of hypertension and dyslipidemia. Since the patient's condition did not improve, Dr. Mahajan asked for an emergency landing at Shannon and rushed her to a nearby hospital upon landing.

Although Dr. Mahajan missed her connecting flights but she managed to save a precious life that without her might not have been possible. Doctor's like her truly raise the bar of excellence and Sevabhav.

Dr. Monika Mahajan
