A child who had been rescued by a team of doctors while onboard a Vistara flight bound for New Delhi is currently facing a critical medical situation.

Promptly responding to the emergency, fellow passengers who were medical professionals took immediate action by administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to the infant passenger. However, despite the swift and coordinated efforts of these individuals, the child’s condition worsened, necessitating a more intensive level of care.

Recognizing the gravity of the situation, the airline team swiftly collaborated with authorities at the Nagpur airport, facilitating an emergency landing in Nagpur. This was a critical move to ensure that the child could receive advanced medical attention as soon as possible. The efficient coordination between the airline team and airport authorities played a crucial role in ensuring a safe and timely landing.

Upon landing, the child was transferred to KIMS KINGSWAY Hospital in Nagpur via an ambulance provided by the hospital. The hospital’s medical team, including a Senior Consultant in Paediatrics and Neonatology, immediately took charge of the child’s care.

Currently, the child’s condition remains extremely critical. The child is under close monitoring and care, being kept on a ventilator to assist with breathing and receiving various life-saving medications. The medical team is working diligently to stabilize the child’s condition and provide the necessary medical interventions.

In addition to medical care, the hospital is also offering support to the child’s parents and relatives. Regular updates on the child’s condition are being provided to them, and they are receiving counseling to help them cope with the challenging situation.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a vital emergency procedure that involves chest compressions and artificial ventilation, typically used when someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped. In this case, the immediate administration of CPR by the doctors onboard the flight was a critical initial response that helped sustain the child until more comprehensive medical care could be provided. Despite the best efforts of all involved, the child’s condition has taken a turn for the worse, necessitating the intensive care and treatment currently being provided at KIMS KINGSWAY Hospital in Nagpur.
