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

  • Published on Jul 11, 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!

      And that tone might have sounded a bit negative, but I'm only subscribed to a handful of channels and I often unsubscribe if no new contect appears for a long time or if it bores me.
      But I do like the friendly and cheerful way of talking here and the fun subjects. Especially the Doctor House reviews, the stupid medical games on the mobile, the Doogie Howser review of course and the medical insights in every video! :-)
      Looking forward to see more stuff!

    Dear Airlines,
    Were you listening?? Do you have at least one epi-pen on all of your planes now? (My guess is no). It will be much cheaper for you to toss a pen on board each plane than it will be to pay a massive lawsuit after someone dies from something as preventable as anaphylactic shock. Just saying...

    I just spent 15 days in Israel. I had the best time of my life. It was an educational and spiritual journey. Needless to say I am in love with this tiny nation. Even though I just got home, I am ready to go back! Israelis are innovative people. The amount of things they have done with their tiny slice of land is astounding. The mother of invention is necessity, well the need for Israel to survive has caused Israel to flourish. A rose out of the desert. The land is truly miraculous! Shalom!
