Airplane Medical Emergency | WE COULDN'T LAND! | Wednesday Checkup

  • Published: 11 July 2019
  • Well, this flight was exciting, to say the least! Luckily it was a learning experience for both me and Matt! Whenever you have an airplane medical emergency doctors do have an ethical but no legal obligation to help. After this event, I thought it might be nice to do a dedicated video to Airplane Medical Emergencies and in general what is expected of doctors and passengers. If you're game for that please let me know in the comments!

              Why's there never an assigned medical professional on flights?

                I always hear stories about a doctor being on a plane and giving people medical treatment on airplanes when there's a medical emergency. What happens when there is no doctor? Do nurses or paramedics step up if they're on the flight?

                    I keep an epipen and an albuterol MDI in my purse always. Dumb reasons to die just for not having them on hand.

                      My son has multiple life threatening food allergies. We haven’t flown because of this. If we ever fly I hope your on the plane! Thank you for stepping up and helping!

                      We NEED EPI PENS ON AIRPLANES! Holy hell! You’re awesome!

                          Cric is a very evasive maneuver. I'm a 68W in the US Army (combat medic). We are taught to intubate within 3 or 5 minutes. I can see how stressed you will be to accomplish a cric with no surgical material. Also stated he had to look it up to remember how to do it. In the medical world, if you dont use it, you lose it. I feel your pain.

                            Grey's Anatomy Season 13 Episode 20. They also need to provide care and procedures on a plane. Might be one to watch and critique. But agreed planes should be well stocked. I am an LPN in Canada and agree these shows are not medically correct but enjoy watching for the dramatic effects.

                                  How Delta didn't IMEDIATELY reach out to Dr. Mike and have a 'consultation' meeting with him about how to better improve their medical kits – especially regarding EpiPens – is beyond me.

                                              Dr. Mike should start a charity foundation to bring epipens to planes, trains and boats. Maybe schools idk, most families can't afford them

                                                    US air lines are so cheap, they over book flights, kill pets, kick people off planes, physical hit people, they don’t always check properly/service over used planes, they don’t serve meals just little baggie snacks, charge extra for everything,...... that’s why they don’t (care enough) to have epi-pen(s) or other things like that on board.... only have what they legally are required as far as safety goes.

NP will sit and monitor him not leave him, and proceed with the next assessment not just take 2 more... Don't be fooled by the degree. Which would you want an experience NP or a new grad MD.
