Flying Doctor Service
The Health Ministry has awarded State Government-owned Sabah Air Aviation Sdn Bhd a Flying Doctor Service contract for the next four years 2012 to 2016.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman, in congratulating Sabah Air, believed this is further proof of the professionalism and capability the company has developed in its history.

Sabah has a long history in the effective integration of aviation and medical science.
Flying Doctor Service, under the State Health Department, has served Sabah's rural population for over 37 years, making it a pioneer in this region.

State Health Department covers 68 villages throughout Sabah.

In Sabah, doctors and paramedic staff do not only cover their standard work schedules but also go beyond their call of duty by flying to remote corners of Sabah to deliver primary medical services
The Health Ministry has been working with the State Health Department for many years now to ensure that the Primary Health Care Programme in rural regions is executed in a seamless manner.

This journey has served as a positive learning experience for both the Ministry and department, through sophisticated policies and processes that guide operations, he added.
The service available today, and what most of us take for granted, is the result of years of fine-tuning and development by the health authorities and air service providers such as Sabah Air.
There is a growing requirement to ensure rapid transfers between hospitals for critical care patients, human organs to transplants and even transferring ill and injured personnel of oil and gas offshore facilities to the nearest appropriate hospitals.

This is all part and parcel of providing accessibility and ensuring the wellbeing of the people, irrespective of location, during an emergency.

Influenza H1N1 in Tawau


The epidermic has spread to Tawau town in June 2009. More and more confirmed cases and suspected victims of this virus.

In TAWAU district, 16 cases of H1N1 have been recorded in the district as on 31 July 2009

The symptoms of Influenza H1N1 in Tawau


The symptoms of H1N1 (swine) flu in people are similar to the symptoms of regular human flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people have reported diarrhea and vomiting associated with H1N1 (swine) flu. In the past, severe illness (pneumonia and respiratory failure) and deaths have been reported with H1N1 (swine) flu infection in people. Like seasonal flu, H1N1 (swine) flu may cause a worsening of underlying chronic medical conditions.

In children emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:

Fast breathing or trouble breathing
Bluish or gray skin color
Not drinking enough fluids
Severe or persistent vomiting
Not waking up or not interacting
Being so irritable that the child does not want to be held
Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough
In adults, emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:

Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
Sudden dizziness
Confusion
Severe or persistent vomiting
Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough
I can't exactly comment on this as I am cautious and scared at the same time due to the chaos made by people around me. As we can see, it's getting more and more serious though we see that few friends of mine recovered. But hey still !
