DocOnCall24/7 for Truckers

For many, the trucking lifestyle is difficult enough, but when a driver is faced with an illness or sickness on the road, the difficulties can become much more serious.

I remember years back when I became extremely ill while miles away from home and my primary doctor’s care. As we often do while living life on the road, I continued to ignore my symptoms, believing that I would just “ride it out” and get well on my own.

As the illness worsened, I was finally forced to pull into a hospital parking lot in Cleveland, Tennessee where I was immediately wheeled into the ER. I would remain there for nearly two weeks as I overcame blood poisoning and discover that I had only been three hours away from becoming a fatality.

Back then, there were no Smartphones, WiFi, laptops or video communications of any kind and when a driver faced unknown medical symptoms while thousands of miles away from home, life on the road could become very unpleasant and dangerous to say the least.

In today’s technological advances, the ability for professional truck drivers to have access to a doctor’s care is available 365 days and 24/7.

  1. If you have a cpap machine for sleep apnea but cannot tolerate the therapy read “How to love your cpap machine: Secrets from a sleep specialist.” I wrote this book to help people talk with their primary care doctors or the respiratory therapist at the company that supplied the machine. Profits from this book fund our “Real Food Weight Loss Program” which is free to low income individuals. Do not ignore sleep apnea. This condition can still your career, destroy your health and cause early death.

What do you have to say about this?
