How prepared are airlines?

Airline crew should have basic medical knowledge and training. There should he some form of medical kits.

The following British airline provide examples:
Virgin - cabin crew with first-aid training; senior cabin crew are trained to use defibrillators. Access to MedLink.

BA - medical kits contain a "delivery pack" for births. Access to MedLink.
easyJet - crew get medical training and are reassessed every 12 months. Two medical kits on each aircraft. Does not carry defibrillators.

Ryanair Said: "Ryanair's medical training and eqmpment complies withthe stringent safety regulations set by EASA, which apply to all European airlines." Declined to say what equipment is carried on board.
