JACKIE

 

INCOMING SITUATION

 

“My two-year-old child went into respiratory distress. We are on vacation in Vietnam and can’t reach our pediatrician. What should we do?”  –  Jackie

PRIVATE HEALTH MANAGEMENT ACTIONS & IMPACT

  •  Jackie called us from a small tourist village in Vietnam. Her daughter was coughing continuously and developing labored breathing

  • Our pediatrics advisor assessed the child’s symptoms over the phone to determine urgency of the situation and determined the child was not in immediate danger

  • We identified and contacted a U.K.-trained pediatrician within 20 minutes of Jackie’s hotel who made an immediate house call

  • Our Medical Director consulted with pediatrician and concluded that a nebulizer would effectively resolve the breathing challenges

RESULTS

 

Jackie’s daughter was effectively treated and the family resumed their vacation
