If I was worried about it, I'd buy a travel insurance policy.

I'm guessing we travel to different places, but I always look at worst case scenarios. I'd rather be air lifted out than treated in some 3rd world country for anything worse than the common cold.

Last years surgical mission trip to Nicaragua had one of our surgeons go into SVT (Supra Ventricular Tacycardia). Fortunately converted with an extra dose of his own medication. Otherwise he was looking at flying home. The main hospital in Managua might have been a stop gap until the flight but I'd have serious doubts.
