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

  • Loading...
  • Published on:  Wednesday, July 10, 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!

    Thanks, Defranco for the shoutout! Check out his channel here:

    wait, how would you know this about ticks?
    kind of like you asked about the episode of House, how would a doctor know such about snake venom reproduction............having dealt with it before, having studied it because you were bored, having studied it because.....blah blah blah
    this seems like on eof those random facts.......that a medical professional might pick up over time

    Why are they not on planes? Mylan makes them cost 12 billion dollars a pen and the airlines cut costs no matter what the outcome outside of stock value will be.

    What I gathered is that you can eat people and not have to worry about this allergic reaction...

    Was I the only one who watched the Puffs commercial before the video that had the dad putting out a fake fire with a box of tissues, and then the tissue box squirts out lotion that turns into a tissue?
