Previously, the patient, Lieutenant Colonel Pham Viet Cuong, was transported to Truong Sa Island Medical Station with chest pain and heavy breathing. Doctors of the station gave first aid to him and had an online health consultancy via the Telemedicine system with medical experts of Military Hospital 175. However, the patient needed to be transported to shore due to the bad development of his condition.

The patient was moved to Military Hospital 175 for further treatment.

After receiving the request, Military Corps 18 sent the EC225 helicopter with a medievac team from Military Hospital 175 on board to undertake the mission to Truong Sa island district.

The patient was then taken to Military Hospital 175 for further treatment. His health condition is now stable.
