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

  • Опубликовано: 11 июля 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!

    Does the allergy towards alpha-gal due to that tick bite goes away eventually?

      This kills me. I have severe food allergies. I travel with 2 epipens just incase something like this happens. I cannot believe that airlines don't have epipens on board. It's ridiculous. What would have happened if you were not there that day and there were no doctors on board. That poor kid might have died! Thank goodness it all turned out ok. You"re a good doctor Dr. Mike. Thanks for making this video!

                        I am cabin crew for a UK airline and we have stopped selling nut products on board and now throughout all our planes in Europe we have been given epi pens on board. It should be the same for all airlines

                          Could airlines potentially be leaving epipens out of emergency kits because of cost? My younger brother has a severe allergy but insurance will no longer cover the epipens due to the price inflation. He currently has a different delivery mechanism but it’s bulky and not as easy to use.

                            Next time, ask if someone else caries an epipen. chances are someone has one in a bag

                              I'm severely allergic to alcohol (sanatiser and wipes etc) and I've been into anaphylaxis due to doctors and nurses using it on their hands before touching me, but they didn't have epi pens on ward and the staff had to scramble around looking for one while they gave me steroids 🤦🏻‍♀️. I'm always dumbfounded that even some wards don't stock them! I always carry 2 now.

                                It's absolutely wonderful that the pilots and nurses deferred to his judgment so much as to offer to land the plane in multiple places. I could just see Big Airlines breathing down their necks to be stubborn. I'm sure it helped that he could count on the nurses to go get ice pack and radio the towers and stuff.

                                  I find a lot of people don't understand just how dangerous an allergy can be. Admittedly I didn't either until I had my first anaphylaxis but now.... Oh boy I try and educate whenever I can

                                                    Unfortunately, at least in my airline, we are not allowed to open or use the medical kit without the presence and authorization of a doctor.

Guess if I go into anaphylactic shock I'll just show my immune system my finances and hope it gives me a break.

                                                            Dr. Mike if epi hadn’t worked would you have been comfortable administering a high dosage of diphenhydramine say 50mg or so? I understand it can have a sedative effect in such high dosages which would in turn force you to monitor vitals much more closely and possibly require advanced airways. Just food for thought since I’m curious.

I was wondering, you said the epipen would have a lower dose - you said you gave him the right dose but were you able to do that because you already knew what the dose of epinephrine should be, or were there instructions in case on anaphylactic shock?

                                                                            Well done for keeping your cool and saving Matt. He’s very blessed that you were on board. I know how to give an epipen but I’d be stuck in that situation. If there were no instructions I’d have killed him by giving him the whole thing.

                                                                            I look after a lad who has a peanut allergy - he’s so good, he looks after his epipen like is a million dollars! Guess he knows how to stay happy and healthy 😀
