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

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:

    I've actually had doctors Google in the consultation while I'm here, trying to figure out something. I see nothing wrong with it.

    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...
