      Yes, please do a video dedicated to airplane medical emergencies or perhaps even touching the common grounds of if we were to face such emergencies in trains or buses too. Thank you! And what you did back there was amazing! Glad it turned out well. And yes to story time and updates on Israel!

          Hey Dr. Mike, what to get over Trypophobia?

            I’m highly allergic to peanuts and one time the flight attendants handed out peanuts and water. Just having someone open the bag next to me caused my eyes to itch and my throat to start closing. Luckily I quickly took Benadryl and it seemed to calm it. I’ve had an anaphylactic reaction before so I know the feeling. Knowing airlines don’t have epipens makes the situation 10x worse. Don’t serve nuts when your not going to consider allergies, especially if you can’t treat the problem. Big yikes! Thank goodness you were there!

              i really hope this changes the epinephrine policies at airplanes. i have a serious but allergy and every time i fly i am always worried. i always carry an épipen on me but it is scary to think that airplanes do not have one

                Yo Mike, does Delta carry epipens now? Is there an update?

                If not, I won’t fly with them going forward.


                P.S. I’ll tell them you sponsored my decision, thanks. 🙏

                  Dr. Mike, you a G my man! I’ve been watching your videos for a while now and actually feel a lot more confident in knowing what I can do to help a person in a dangerous situation. I’m obviously not a doctor but basic things like CPR etc. I didn’t even know before I stumbled upon your channel so cheers to that and have a good one!

                    As a healthcare provider it’s stories like these that make me anxious to fly. No epi pen on a plane? You have to be kidding me.

                            Oh my I can really sympathize with the passenger cuz I have many allergies and the swelling can be reeeeally scary ,I always cary an epi-pen around but I thankfully never needed it in an emergency, I usually know when I am beggining to have an allergic reaction and I tak an anti-histamine(Idk how to spell it🤣) But that story shows that airplanes need to have epi-pens on board, I can't imagine getting an allerguc reaction and not have anything around ,breathing already gets harder and I don't think fear helps at all! Thank you doctor Mike!!

                                                                                I'm a flight attendant of a short flights company in Europe; its policy is that we have first aid kits on board, but we can use them just for ourselves crew (most of the passengers don't even know we have them) or for all the passengers in case of surviving crash or high-risk emergency (we have bandages in case of fractures, but also plasters, thermometer or paracetamol).
                                                                                What's at the base of the rule is that although we have a medical training, so we can distinguish some of the illnesses according to their most common symptoms, we are not doctors: we haven't the degree that give us that knowledge and we can't be 100% sure about the disease, so we aren't allowed to give any medicines to the passengers. To give you an example, if they have an allergic reaction on board they must use the epi-pen on their own: we can't do that for them! We need to do a public announcement to ask if there is a doctor/nurse onboard (who must show us the medical ID or an ID where there is specified the job) and can administer medications (in the specific case of the allergic reaction, passengers are usually helped straight away by relatives or friends when they recognise the signs).
                                                                                Another situation is the CPR: we must carry out the chest compressions and the rescue breaths until paramedics or doctors come onboard and declare the death. We aren't doctors so we haven't the knowledge we need to affirm that the passenger is dead and there's nothing we can do to help him.
                                                                                Another thing is that the company doesn't want to have any problems nor risks to be taken to court, in case the passenger says that his conditions got worse after the medicine provided on board and given by cabin crew. I'm not allowed either (just to say something that might look stupid) to give to the passengers my personal basic food-stuffs (such as sugar, sweetener, salt), whenever it happens that we don't have it onboard because it's run out (it always happens with the sugar), in case they feel sick and accuse me/the airline of giving something expired or wasted.
                                                                                We always have to ask lots of questions to the passengers, because they remember to tell us their illnesses, but they forget to come onboard with the epi-pen, GTN, inhaler, insulin,.....or they come on board already sick (headache, stomacache, indigestion,....) and they complain because it's impossible, incredible, ashamed, disgusting that we haven't medications for them: it's an aircraft, not the pharmacy of Doctor House!!!!
                                                                                But I can understand your point of view: if the aircraft is provided with some of those medications our lives and journeys (of both passengers and flight attendants) would be easier!!!

Not fun at all. Very scary stuff. You pretty much feel like you are gonna die cause you literally can’t breath. The first time it happened my parents took me to the doctor and I got the shot. The second time it happened they just called the doctor and they had me eat crushed ice. It actually helped. Though I didn’t appreciate my dad mocking me gasping for wow. That’s not funny your daughter coulda died in front of you. I don’t think they get how serious it is.
