Hundreds of thousands of travelers pass through U.S. airports each year. Until now, the traveling public was unable to obtain medial assistance at an airport; however, the CSI Health System Medical Kiosk now offers travelers and airport employees the opportunity to speak directly with a physician and receive needed medical attention at the touch of a button.
International travelers also have the opportunity to now take care of their medical needs and handle health problems quickly and easily using the CSI Heath System.
The CSI Health System Kiosk will assist not only travelers, but also airport employees with stress management and health problems that arise during working hours.
In addition, new rules that require pilots to get a minimum amount of uninterrupted rest and limit the number of consecutive hours they can fly will go into effect on March 15, 2014. The new regulations require that pilots get at least 10 hours of rest between shifts. Eight of those hours must involve uninterrupted sleep. In the past, pilots could spend those eight hours getting to and from the hotel, showering and eating. Pilots will now be limited to flying eight or nine hours, depending on their start times. They must also have 30 consecutive hours of rest each week, a 25% increase over previous requirements.
Pilots will also be able to take advantage of the CSI Health System to check their health status without spending valuable hours trying to see a doctor off site if they have a problem while traveling.
