"Is There a Medical Provider on Board? Medical Emergencies at 30,000 Feet."

“Ladies and gentlemen: is there a doctor on board?” We will use recordings of real-life in-flight emergency consults to supplement a discussion of common and uncommon scenarios that medical providers may be challenged with during commercial airline travel. We will discuss the unique aspects of patient care in this austere environment, what supplies and resources are available, the medical challenges of taking care of patients at altitude, considerations for aircraft diversion, and how you can help.
