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


WATCH ME IN THE HOSPITAL (VLOG): https://youtu.be/LzpCldPiT0c

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. Flight attendants can’t inject anything, so if there were an epi pen you’d still need a Dr. to administer it.

    I know some airlines have a kit with intubation equipment, maybe not Delta?

    Also, typical passenger reaction to care more about a diversion than about an ill person. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  2. You need to watch the Grey's Anatomy season 13 episode 20, Meredith Grey and another doctor have to makeshift some things to help save the lives of 2 people on a plane… (then there is an actual plane crash earlier on, I'd love to hear what you would do in this situation as well)

  3. this is the first time ive seen your video, and i must say i really appreciate your work and how professional you were handling the situation. in this case, you had to improvise and make do of your environment and materials available to you while staying under control and checking for any other risks at hand

  4. As a new YouTube follower, thank you for saving his life. I've watched a few of your meme vids and TV show commentary vids. Hearing how someone was lucky to have you on a flight 💜 makes me so happy to have found your channel!

  5. I'm at high risk of anaphylactic shocks when I come into contact with rapsberries, never had a full attack but we were pretty close to it last time I had one. I always have an EpiPen on me though for this reason

  6. "Is there a doctor on board?!"

    *Dr. Mike comes stumbling down the isle, no shoes, hoodie, lookin like he hasn't slept in 40 years*:

  7. I remember working at a camp and every single time we had a camper who has had seizures in the past and we were at the water front I was always half in rescue mode because I know I would need to grab this child and get them to the dock/land as quickly as I can.

  8. I remember one time I had an allergic reaction and it hurt when I was walking to the door to a hospital after an EpiPen injection. Now I posses the ultimate knowledge of why it hurt

  9. Question: if you have an epi pen and it's expired … Should you still use it? I have a severe allergy to bees, thankfully I live in Alberta sooo most of the year they ain't around and I do get a new $100 dollar epi pen every year …. Ugh … But if I was in a situation where I didn't have mine, or maybe it was expired, I have about 15 minutes to where my throat is pretty much completely closed and I'm done. Anyone? Btw … Dr Mike is Canadian?

  10. My brother is a doctor and he had to show his ID to prove he is a doctor when they asked if there was a doctor on board his flight because he looks so young (he was over 30). It was just food poisoning but he ended up getting a letter from the airline doctor and a bottle of champagne as a thank you.

  11. But did you have them ask if any of the other passengers carry an epipen? I always do because of my allergies and it has come in helpful for someone else having a reaction before
