Miércoles, 5 de septiembre de 2012 Pedro Ortiz García Sin comentarios

The leading cause of death in the United States is coronary heart disease (CHD).

This report from the USPSTF updates the 2004 recommendations on ECG screening for asymptomatic adults at low, intermediate, or high risk for CHD events.

Qatar Airways Pilot dies in flight

Jueves, 14 de octubre de 2010 Jose María Pérez Sastre 1 comentario

But the company did not confirm the cause of death, or if the flight was ever at risk. The British Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) reported 32 occasions in 2009 when pilots were incapacitated during a flight. Although modern passenger aircraft are able to fly themselves during most of a flight, the presence of a co-pilot in the cockpit is essential in case of the captain becoming unwell, or of a particularly dangerous emergency situation
