Ernesto Sanz, miembro del equipo de Patolog√≠a Mamaria del Hospital Casa Salud de Valencia, es un cirujano de altos vuelos Cada fin de semana Sanz pilota uuna avioneta para hacer vuelos cortos a Zaragora, Murcia...¬†pendiente de la licencia de piloto comercial de l√≠neas a√©reas. Dice Ernesto en la entrevista¬† publicada en Diario M√©dico que pilotar y operar se parecen en que si no est√°s muy concentrado en lo que haces puedes llevarte un susto muy grande. En su caso, los vuelos¬†le sirven para desconectar de la medicina: ” durante cada vuelo, me concentro en lo que hago, disfruto del viaje y no pienso en pacientes o instrumental, lo que me supone una aut√©ntica limpieza mental”. Habla respecto a la Sanidad espa√Īola y comenta que es de lo mejorcito que tenemos, sobre todo gracias a la gente que se deja la piel todos los d√≠as, aunque todav√≠a hay mucho que cambiar.

The QThrombosis Risk Calculator

Viernes, 19 de agosto de 2011 Jose María Pérez Sastre Sin comentarios

A new algorithm can accurately predict a patient’s 1- and 5-year risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE) using simple clinical variables, according to a study in BMJ. The following were some of the factors predictive of incident VTE: older age, higher BMI, cigarette smoking, varicose veins, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, renal disease, recent hospital admission, antipsychotic drug use, and tamoxifen use. The authors say the algorithm may be useful in identifying patients most likely to benefit from intervention.¬†Perhaps it ¬†might be useful for your clinical aeroomedical ¬†practice as well.

On the Home Front: “A stressful family life can affect performance in the cockpit”

Miércoles, 17 de agosto de 2011 Laura Duque Arrubla Sin comentarios

The results of this study indicate  that stability in relationships and home life were the most important factors in helping pilots cope with stress and  that the effects of domestic stress carry over to the pilots’ work world, directly influencing work stress and indirectly affecting pilots’ perceptions of their flying performance….suggesting the need for management to maintain awareness of how the quality of home life may affect the work environment and overall performance. You can read this and other interesting articles at new AerosafetyWorld July-August 2011 issue.

Qantas B747 Accident Bangkok : “A repairing story”

Viernes, 12 de agosto de 2011 Esther Felipe Duyos Sin comentarios

A B747 Qantas Flight 1 flying from Sydney to London through Kangaroo Route overrun runway at landing in heavy rain for a Bangkok¬† stopover, 23-September-1999. This incident was Qantas’ most significant incident in fifty years of jet aircraft operation. There were no significant passenger injuries during an orderly evacuation of the aircraft ordered some 20 minutes after the rough landing. Thirty-eight passengers reported minor injuries. The aircraft was repaired and was returned to service. Here you can see a powerpoint presentation by Peter Thomas about the whole repairing process that took place to resume its flights more than six months after the accident. One can imagine through these photos ¬†how complex and¬†challenging ¬†can become such a work.

¬ŅSabes qu√© es….IVAO?

Si tienes inter√©s en volar siguiendo los procedimientos del mundo real, con sus radioayudas, sus planes de vuelo, sus salidas ¬†(SID) y llegadas (STAR) y los vuelos en tiempo real (y con meteorolog√≠a real), pero no tienes el t√≠tulo de piloto, est√°s en el sitio adecuado. El objetivo de IVAO es proporcionar una experiencia lo mas realista posible, por ello esta mal visto el hacer cosas que no se harian en el mundo real y que son comunes en redes menos controladas. IVAO es una ¬†red de aficionados que permite a sus miembros la posibilidad de convertirse, bien en pilotos o bien en controladores. Si despues de estos primeros comentarios te ha picado la curiosidad, no esperes mas…

Knuffingen Airport Photogallery

Miércoles, 3 de agosto de 2011 Esther Felipe Duyos Sin comentarios

Knuffingen Airport is an incredible new miniature model,¬†based on Hamburg‚Äôs airport, that has finally opened to the public. It‚Äôs on display at Miniatur Wunderland, in Hamburg. It cost 3.5million Euros ‚Äď but the result is plane-ly amazing. Its view is worthwhile, but if you¬†do not¬†expect to go to Germany soon, you at least can see the following Photo Gallery and Video published by Peter ThornHill on Daily Mail.
