The Case of Death in Sheremetyevo Airport
September 7, 2014 17:33


Medical aid rendered to the passenger of the flight Barcelona - Chelyabinsk who died at the Sheremetyevo airport on August 18 was provided with non-conformance. This was reported to the journalists by the Minister of Health of the RF Veronika Skvortsova who referred to the data of the inspection by Federal Service on Surveillance in Healthcare and Social Development of Russian Federation (Roszdravnadzor).

“We received the official results of the investigation by Roszdravnadzor on Friday. The investigation revealed cases of non-conformance” - she said. “First of all, when the first pilot reported to the dispatcher’s service of air traffic control about the acute situation related to a heart attack of one of the passengers, the dispatcher did not transmit this information to ambulance, did not call a reanimation ambulance car, which had to wait at the air stair, but reported it through the service of the airport to the medical centre of the airport” - the Minister said.

According to her, the attendant physician and the accompanying paramedic arrived on board the aircraft only in 10 minutes. At the same time, as Skvortsova noted, “the instructions prescribed for a therapist by the service of air traffic control do not fully meet the qualification requirements set by order of the Ministry of Health”.

The minister also said that the team called an ambulance only after spending 33 minutes in the plane. At the same time, according to Skvortsova, ambulance was also called with abuse of regulations. As the Minister told, the physicians of the airport called not the central substation, but made a direct call to the landline telephone of the central ambulance station of the city of Moscow located more than 20 kilometers from Sheremetyevo. The dispatcher, in his turn, received the call on his station, without redirecting it to the station in the suburbs, and sent not a reanimation team, but an ordinary team, to Sheremetyevo which came to the plane in 41 minutes.

“As a result, the team that arrived was able to quickly intubate the patient, and began to render the necessary aid, but it was too late - the patient died” - the Minister noted. There is an ongoing forensic investigation, it is required to conduct further histological, toxicological and chemical investigations.

The final results of the investigation will be disclosed on September 7-8, Skvortsova promised. “After that, we will provide an additional analysis of the causes of death of a young man 24 years old who had no history of any disease, and there were no objective reasons which would have caused such an acute disease for the first time” - the Minister said. The incident occurred on August 18, 2014. Artem Chechikov and his wife were returning from their honeymoon by the flight Barcelona - Chelyabinsk. During the flight he felt ill, emergency aid was rendered to the patient by one of the passengers who was a doctor. The plane landed at Sheremetyevo urgently, but the doctors who arrived could not save the life of a young man. According to eyewitnesses, the ambulance was an hour late.
