  • In a very recent case, CardioExpress helped in saving the life of the Master of MV ‘’Maia’’ who was diagnosed to suffer from cardiac arrhythmia and high rate of heartbeat in the middle of the Indian Ocean. With their immediate diagnosis and valuable medical advice thereafter, achieved to keep him alive until reaching the closest shore medical facilities a few days later. In other cases, their immediate and reliable diagnosis has assisted us to save on unnecessary deviations and related expenses, as the medical condition of the patients was not critical and could be treated onboard.

    Capt. Michail Z. Fotinos (Crew Manager) Diana Shipping

  • With more than 1,000 seafarers at the open sea every single moment, the preventive and emergency telecardiographic monitoring that Cardioexpress provides, has proved to be a valuable assistance for our people. Using this service, our people have access to rapid heart problems diagnosis and medical advice everywhere. They feel confident that when being at sea far from any shore medical facilities, real time transmission of cardiograph and response from experienced cardiologists can save their life.

  • In our vessel Aegean Dignity, a 40-year-old member of our crew experienced a severe cardiac episode and it was urgent for him to be transferred to a medical facility. Unfortunately, the vessel was in the middle of the ocean without the possibility of evacuation and the patient did not have the ability to be transferred for more than 9 hours. The doctors of CardioExpress not only immediately diagnosed the severe character of the incident but they also managed to keep him alive through constant monitoring and appropriate medication for all this time.

    Matttheou Dimitrios (Managing Director) Arcadia Shipmanagement

  • While we were sailing in the open sea along the coast of Bari to Greece the doctors of CardioExpress diagnosed an acute heart attack. The passenger was immediately transferred to a hospital in Bari […] and finally the person was saved.

    Captain Strintzis Lines

  • We took the decision to cooperate with CardioExpress because we understood that CardioExpress would always be available to help both the passengers and the captain. […] This period we have had a few incidents. […] We believe that CardioExpress is necessary because even if there is a doctor in the ship in all likelihood he won't be a cardiologist.

  • The fact that I am still alive and I am now talking to you, I owe it to CardioExpress.
