English Abstract

A 2,230 gm premature female infant was safely delivered onboard a fixed-wing aircraft during an evacuation flight from Kinmen to Taipei on the 23(superscript rd) of June 2003. The Apgar score was 6 and 9 at 1 and 5 minutes, respectively. The infant's 19 years old mother was at 30 weeks estimated gestation age (EGA) before she suffered premature uterine contractions on the 21(superscript st) June. She was admitted to the Kinmen County Hospital where tocolytic therapy was given immediately. She was then transferred to a tertiary medical center in Taipei, owing to her premature condition. Aero-medical evacuation by an International SOS medical team went smoothly until minutes before landing. Emergency delivery of the baby was performed and both mother and baby were in stable conditions.
