    Incredible... I’m actually a lead flight attendant who had this happen to me in the air. A passenger went into Anaphylaxis after eating a snack. Her airway closed, she began clawing at her throat, had a seizure and went limp. We paged for a medical professional, we had 5 (2 doctors, paramedics). My colleague paged for an epipen, another passenger had one, the doctor administered it into her leg and she regained consciousness. We diverted and landed 15 minutes later, this was an hour into a two hour flight. We taxied to the gate, opened the door, paramedics got to her... boom, second seizure. It was awful, I genuinely thought she was going to die. She made it. We gave the doctors who helped a bottle of wine each. We are trained on how to use an epipen, we do not have them on board (though I wish we did). I’ve told that story during first aid training and the firefighter/paramedic who leads that course said in 15 minute, she would have died if that epipen wasn’t there. Also, Matt is incredibly lucky because epipens do not cure the anaphylaxis, it presses pause on the symptoms... typically for 15-20 minutes... Matt is incredibly lucky. I don’t know how he continued for the rest of the flight. Maybe the reaction was milder because it was delayed and from an allergy that’s been developed very recently. I’m glad this worked out because first hand experience, it’s absolutely terrifying.

    Why didn’t he ask if someone had a epipen?

    There should be a medical assistant on the plane. Even though flight attendants are trained for some situations, a more experienced doctor would totally benefit everyone and save lives.

    Hate to throw a disagreement here, but surgical airways/crics are still a mainstay procedure in the toolkit for paramedics specifically for upper airway problems. Describing them as "something that doesn't happen" is inaccurate. Intubation or supraglottic airway device usage can easily be made impossible by airway swelling.

    So many things Delta should have on their flights. Epi-Pens, Narcan, honestly just a well stocked bag of VERY COMMONLY USED LIFE SAVING ITEMS. A passenger just died on an opioid overdose on a Delta flight, Narcan would have been live saving.

    As someone who has a serve allergy I know how hard it is to get your hands on an epi pen. It’ll cost me $300 just for one and they’re back ordered so I have to hit up Canada to find one. It’s insane :(

    Dude, Ya should have diverted and landed! Take the pressure off you, and avoid having to trach this young man in mid-air! What are you thinking?! FYI Our Blood Rxn Rx : Steroid, Benedryl, Zantac, and ASA - covers ALL your bases! THATS what airlines need for basic allergic Rxn!

    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
