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!

1. Well, I bet you watched *a bunch* of vids on how to do the "cric" once you landed! 2. Booo, Delta. Get Epipens on board, *and* maybe a kit for a doctor to do a cric if necessary! Also, every other airline should do this too! 3. Thank you for saving this guy's life! 4. I'm a Christian, but I've heard of BirthRight. Awesome, dude! 👍🏻

My mom saved a man that had a very low BP on the way home from Ireland. We were also over the atlantic and couldn't land. She is a nurse anesthetist (got her 30th anniversary gift of working as a CRNA recently) and helped that man get his BP back up to a healthy level. She was amazing, like superwoman. Sadly, she didn't get a thanks or any recognition, but I always tell friends and family about it because I saw my mother in action and saving a life.

Great story Dr. Mike! As a medical student, I am totally on board with the idea of having epipens available on airplanes. While airlines can certainly afford it-as I’m sure you’re aware-many patients cannot due to a host of reasons. I’d love to see you make a video on that and hear your opinion on the controversy surrounding the costs!

As someone with a food allergy, I find it astounding that there wasn't an epipen on the plane. I carry that shit literally everywhere I go. Unbelievable

Dr.Mike I suffer with severe migraines on almost a daily basis. My doctor keeps prescribing me the same meds that don't work. Do you know of anything that could help?

I was born with life-threatening allergies to all dairy, tree nuts, and eggs. My life is a living hell and the worst part is that my insurance doesn't cover my epipens and I cant afford them anymore, so I stopped caring and I'm probably just going to end up dead. Mainly because companies don't give a shit about people like me. I can't eat out, I have to make all of my own food. I'm going insane from the same meal every day. I've almost died countless times and the last time I went into anphylactic shock was when I was 23. I almost went into cardiac arrest and I passed out after throwing up inside of my car after I had drove myself to the hospital. Thankfully my parents were able to pay my medical bills back then.The amount of ptsd I have every time I go to eat something is overwhelming and I'm plagued with stress at every meal. One of my least favorite things about life-threatening food allergies in general is how Hollywood and the media always make it less than what it is. People can't understand what it is like to be so completely different without anyone really being able to tell. I wish anyone like me who is an adult and still has these allergies all the best.

Yo this man is amazing! Something similar happened to me on a flight. I have sickle cell and a protein C deficiency which has caused me a stroke, numerous DVT’s & 3 P.E’s. Now I’ve flown in past no problems. This particular time I was trying to get back home to NY from FL which is about a 2 hour flight. I had not been feeling well and was not able to take my blood thinner for about 3 days due to me not being able to keep anything down. I was in pain, and my chest was hurting but I’m like ima thug it out these 2 hours and the second I get off this flight I’m going straight to the er. I put my headphones on & boom we take off. About 20 minutes in I began having trouble breathing...I’m like shit, I don’t wanna say anything cause I don’t want to ruin the flight so I’m praying, talking to myself, trying to slow my pulse down, I went to inhale and it felt like a rib cracked. I could no longer breathe normally. The lady sitting next to me asked if I was ok and shook my head no. She put the light on and when the flight attendant came over she could see I was in bad shape. They make that announcement and to my surprise there was ONE nurse who happened to work at the sickle cell clinic at Vanderbilt! She understood how serious sickle cell is and that I either had another P.E, acute chest or both. She tried her hardest to get a line in me but no luck...I have a port and she kept apologizing for sticking me I couldn’t say very much but I tried to tell her don’t worry about it. But when I tell you that woman advocated her ass off for me I tell you no lies she told them to divert that plane and land now. 45 mins later we were in South Carolina, I had an ambulance waiting and they promptly whisked me away. I was in the hospital for 3 weeks down there and the airline made sure I made it safely back home. I only wish I was able to thank that angel on board who saved my life. However I was flying a different time and saw one of the flight attendants who helped with me and she gave me the biggest hug and said how the pilot and other staff was wondering how I was doing. I took a picture with her when we landed!! Shout to united airlines and anyone who’s saved a life on a flight. It’s a scary situation to be in especially for the patient. I remember saying please don’t let me die up here. I had passengers holding my hand and praying with me. Oh and NOBODY was the least bit irritated that the flight had to make an emergency landing for me. ❤️❤️

Not to discount your heroic efforts, which I think were amazing and I look forward to the day in my medical journey when I can reach this level of confidence (currently at the end of 3rd year med school)...but I can't help but wonder, if as a Black woman, if I was at your level, would I have had to spend more time trying to convince the airline staff that I was in fact a doctor in the first place that could handle the situation? You know what I mean? Anyways, thanks for sharing this. In general, you really give me something to look forward to in the future. :)
