A medical verification statement is one that is provided by a certified medical professional for a patient who wishes to undertake air travel. The statement provides all the medical information of the passenger who is traveling and requires use of positive airway machine. The statement has to specify the type of use that the passenger requires including the duration and time specification such as takeoff and landing.
Apart from this the physician should provide all details about the patient that the airlines company is expected to know in order to act in situations of medical emergency that patient may face. Lastly the physician declares that the patient is competent to operate the airway machine or is accompanied by an attendant to operate the machine properly.
