INCOMING SITUATION

 

“I just landed in Rome and am in a cab on my way to my hotel now. I’m experiencing severe pain in my leg and am not sure if it was from the long flight or if something is really wrong. Can you help?” – Charles 

PRIVATE HEALTH MANAGEMENT ACTIONS & IMPACT

  • Our clinician determined that Charles’s specific type of leg swelling and pain could signal potential deep vein thrombosis – a potentially life-threatening condition

  • We sent Charles directly to the nearest, best emergency room where an ultrasound of the leg confirmed the diagnosis

RESULTS

 

With guidance from our Medical Director, the Italian team immediately began treatment – potentially saving his life
