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

  • Published on: 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!

    As a 3 time Lyme Disease survivor, I am so happy to hear that you have a working knowledge of tick bites and how they can affect people. All doctors need to have this knowledge and information.

    All I can think about is that scene between J and O in MLB3 about the tick and she slaps the living hell out of him. slaps"Damn it it's not the tick""'Damn it it's not the tick?!?!' It's something worse than the tick?"

    I had a similar experience. I was in nursing school and on a trip with a bunch of student nurses and we were flying in Peru to Lima. There was a girl in our group with a anaphylactic reaction to peanuts. Sadly, the airline was serving peanuts as the in flight snack. She happened to be sitting next to me when I noticed she was developing hives which quickly turned to labored and tachypneic respirations. She rapidly declined within about 25 mins complaining of throat swelling. Luckily, for me she an Epi pen with her and I administered it in the seat since she was wearing shorts. She ended up doing well and recovering okay On of the people on out trip was a retired family medicine doctor and said I did excellent. We ended up landing and she gave me a big hug and thanked me for saving her life.

    Great job Dr. Mike. Question for you though - Why don't you travel with an epi pen (or doctors in general) in case you are called on to help in an emergency? I was shocked the airline didn't have one on board.

    I can’t believe that airlines don’t carry epipens. No one in my family has allergies but we have epipens in our vehicles and my dad carries them in his backpacks. It may be the fact that he’s a paramedic but you really know what could happen

    I remember on the news a 15 year old girl was on a flight from London to Nice and was in anaphylactic shock after eating a baguette . After administrating 2 EpiPens (which the dad provided) she didn't get any better. She unfortunately died :( it was such a sad story as her dad was there the whole time watching her die.

    Absolutely amazing! I'm so glad that he was okay. I was really surprised to learn that the airlines don't have EpiPens! Even though I don't have severe allergies to food, I've grown up with some of my friends having food allergies. I would have thought that having an EpiPen would have been standard in planes for years. You're right that they need to get on that!

    For everyone saying that airplanes need EpiPens on board, I think it has to do more with the cost of them than anything else. An EpiPen now can cost as much as $600. That’s a lot of money for anyone to be spending on it. A vial of generic brand Epi 1:1 (anaphylactic epi) and a needle cost about $25 give or take. The fault is on both the airplane but also the big pharmaceutical company that makes EpiPen. The pen should not cost anywhere near $600 dollars and nobody should have to spend that much on it. The makers of EpiPen need to make it more accessible, especially for emergencies like this. I work on an ambulance, and even we don’t carry EpiPens anymore. We carry vials and needles simply because of cost. I do find it ironic though that they had Epi 1:10 (cardiac arrest Epi) on board though as this could’ve caused a cardiac arrest without Dr. Mike’s knowledge and sharp thinking.

    So what happens if the flight attendant ask “is there a medical professional on board” and there isn’t? I think planes should have a medical professional as part of the flight attendants team.

    Does this allergy to red meat from the tic go away? Or is it a permanent change?
