Anaesthesiology and Reanimation
My name is Angela Ducu. I live in Bucharest. I was flying back to Bucharest after having a vacation in Malaysia. During the flight, I didn’t feel very well. Then, the captain made an emergency landing in Trabzon International Airport because of my heart attack risk. The ambulance took me to the Ahi Evren Chest, Heart and Cardiovascular Surgery Hospital. After an examination, it was diagnosed as pulmonary embolism. I quickly recovered in a considerably short treatment period. In addition, the healthcare service and staff’s approach were very professional. I didn’t have any communication problem. During the treatment process, I realized that healthcare provided in Trabzon is equivalent to international standards. I also learned that many international visitors come to Trabzon for touristic purposes. I and my family are planning to spend our next vacation in Trabzon.
My name is Meznah Alhussayn. I am 65 years old. I live in the city of El-Kasım in Saudi Arabia. I was on vacation in Trabzon with my son when I suddenly collapsed onto the floor in the hotel room where I had been staying, and the hotel staff contacted the 112 emergency assistance and rescue team. Thanks to the prompt and effective intervention of the 112 team, my stopped heartbeat was restored, and I was brought by ambulance to the Ahi Evren Chest, Heart And Vascular Surgical Training and Research Hospital. Following the angiography, balloon-stent, and therapeutic hypothermia procedures performed at the hospital, I recovered my health after 21 days of treatment, and was discharged. The healthcare service provided at the hospital, and the attitudes of the healthcare personnel for the duration of my treatment made us feel as if I was being treated in our own country. As for communication, we were not troubled by any language barriers. All in all, I strongly recommend Trabzon as a holiday destination, as much due to my positive experience with the healthcare services as to its natural wonders. I wish once more to express my gratitude to all the authorities. (25.07.2017)
