UAE comprises of the seven emirates- Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Umm Al Quwain. Out of the seven emirates, Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi are the most developed.

The rest of Emirates such as Ras-Al-Khaimah, Fujairah, Ajman and Umm-al-Quwain are still in the developing process and have very less in terms of areas of interest. Ajman, recently has started opening up to the western tourists. Delegates from Ajman tours regularly to the European countries particularly delegates from Emirates have traveled to Germany for promoting trade and tourism between the two nations. German tourist are highly attracted to the Emirates particularly because of the sunny climate of the Emirates.

Germany a member of the European Union has a largely temperate seasonal climate. It has 83 million inhabitants and is the second most populous state of Europe.Most populous state lying entirely in Europe, as well as the most populous member of the European Union.  Germany is a highly developed and decentralized country. Its capital and largest metropolis is Berlin, while Frankfurt serves as its financial capital and has the country's busiest airport

German tourists have contributed hugely to the tourism development in the Emirates. UAE relies on attracting tourists from across the globe, Germany, which is also the largest trading partner of the UAE, consistently generated an inflow of visitors. The figures are rising year after year. The Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA), figures show that the number of German tourists visiting the emirate is increasing by over 17-20% every year.

David holidayed every year with his wife Martha to different parts of the world. This year he planned to visit the UAE. David was an avid bird watcher and he traveled to many countries of the world. This year he decided to tour UAE(Ajman). Another reason for him to travel to the Emirate was to visit, Wasit wetland center.

Wasit Wetland Centre is a conservation area in SharjahUnited Arab Emirates. It preserves an area of a type of wetland, once common along the western coastal plains of the UAE and consists of a visitor center with viewing points to both captive and wild birds. It is located along the Sharjah/Ajman border and comprises some 4.5 square kilometers of protected habitat.

Martha had a medical history of Bronchial asthma, although she never got any severe attacks. But the symptoms used to reappear particularly due to change in weather or climatic conditions. The two major causes of Bronchial asthma is viral and allergic reasons. Allergies are linked to bronchial asthma and many other respiratory diseases as well. The allergens to cause bronchial asthma may include food,  dust, pollen and pets. In children, the most common reason is viral illnesses such as cold and flu. Most people with bronchial asthma show a pattern of periodic attacks of wheezing alternating with periods of quite normal breathing. But in some people with bronchial asthma, it may alternate between chronic (long-term) shortness of breath and episodes in which they feel even more breathless than usual.

During their visit to the desert region, Martha got a chronic attack. She forgot to carry her inhaler during the road tour and her condition worsened. Her symptoms were associated with cough, worsening dyspnea, excessive sputum production. She was immediately carried on an ambulance to the nearest hospital in Sharjah.

The doctor’s carried out physical examination and emergency procedures were initiated. Her treatment began in the hospital in Sharjah. Antibiotics are normally prescribed for these patients. Most commonly used antibiotics for acute bronchitis is Azithromycin followed by Amoxicillin and Clarithromycin. Her condition was stable. David, all alone in a foreign country was just praying to get her health stabilized and was determined to fly her back to their hometown in Frankfurt. He contacted the doctor’s back in Germany and he took advice on how to expatriate the patient by air ambulance transportation mode. The doctor’s in Frankfurt wanted to first have a word with the doctor’s in Sharjah, to understand the current status of the patient and to check the feasibility of air expatriation. Doctor’s briefed that she had a chronic attack but her condition is improving. They mutually decided that after keeping the patient under observation for 3-4 days; call to be taken for expatriating the patient.

Acute bronchitis often develops three to four days after a cold or the flu. It may start with a dry cough, then after a few days, the coughing spells may bring up mucus. Most people get over an acute bout of bronchitis in two to three weeks, although the cough can sometimes hang on for four weeks or more.

Martha was recovering and her condition was stable now, it was decided to evacuate her on a commercial air ambulance.  Martha and David reached their destination safely. Air pressure drops at higher altitudes and patients with history of respiratory disorders can get uneasiness during such a journey. Patients with respiratory issues will always need in-flight oxygen. The Hi-Flying team arranged for in-flight oxygen connection within the flight.
