A transfer operation was conducted at night, during which the wounded man was transferred by MDA helicopter to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, where his condition was unstable and he needed life-saving treatment during the transfer. "Tisa gave him blood doses and various medicines and little by little we saw his oxygen level improve and the other indicators also started to stabilize."



In a joint night operation by Hadassah Medical Center doctors and Magen David Adom teams, an Israeli citizen who was seriously injured during a family trip to Jordan was transferred to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital for medical treatment.

The Israeli, 28 years old, was injured in a serious car accident and was hospitalized in a Jordanian hospital.

After his family contacted the Israeli embassy in Jordan, rapid coordination began between MDA's national hotline and the Israeli consulate in Jordan, and in light of the wounded man's critical condition, preparations began for the operation to transport him to Israel in a Magen David Adom helicopter, accompanied by Dr. Wasim Majahed, a senior physician in the medical department Urgent in Hadassah Ein Kerem.

"The rescue was carried out quickly, this is a very unstable patient"

"During the night I was called by the director of the emergency room at Hadassah Ein Kerem, Dr. Ahmed Naama, in order to manage and accompany from Jordan to Hadassah the transfer of a car accident victim who was very seriously injured," says Dr. Majahed.

"Our inquiry revealed that this was a very unstable patient, and we quickly prepared for a complex medical transfer. "Within a few minutes I was on the MDA helicopter en route to him, accompanied by MDA paramedics Chen Vermus, Rami Miller and helicopter pilot Tzachi Gilutz."

"We landed at the Allenby crossing," describes Dr. Majahed, "prepared with all the medical means and we all knew that his life on this flight was in our hands. When the patient arrived, we were updated on his condition from the doctors from Jordan who accompanied the ambulance and put him on the helicopter. The injury was very severe, His medical indicators were not normal and indicated that his condition is not stable at all."

"Only when we got to Hadassah did we allow ourselves to breathe"

"We worked quickly and with incredible cooperation," says Dr. Majahed. "Hadasa and MDA are well acquainted with the work in the field and are experienced in treating complex casualties, victims of traffic accidents and trauma.

One of the challenges we faced was the pressures - the air pressure goes up and down with the increase in altitude and when we were with the helicopter in the air we monitored its condition twice.

One of the injuries the injured person suffers from is damage to the lungs and the changing pressures may certainly be a risk factor.

During the flight we gave him blood doses and various medicines and little by little we saw his oxygen level improve and the other indicators also started to stabilize.

When we landed at the helipad in Hadassah Ein Kerem, an integrated team was waiting for us who received the patient quickly for further treatment and tests and only then did we allow ourselves to breathe.

Despite the fear and the high risk, we managed to bring him safely to medical treatment in Israel, with professional and absolutely high-quality cooperation."
