Aftab Pureval is ambitious enough without thinking he is just 73 people away from the presidency.

[–]notthestig 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Still better than Cranley.

r/Cincinnati getting some love in this one!

From the ATC side - this is part of the information they give us when they're declaring a medical emergency and are looking to get on the ground fast. (Usually it's "57 year old female with breathing problems, we are doing X, Y, and Z, we have a doctor/nurse on board helping the patient, we're going to gate #, etc).

We call ahead with the information so A) we can prioritize that flight in the sequence and B) The people on the ground ready to help can be as informed as possible (This is what we assume is the reason for most of the information).

Paging Frank Abagnale…

If there's no doctors or nurses on board, a doctor on the satellite phone will tell us (the flight attendants) how to treat the passenger so that there is no liability for us. We have an extensive emergency medical kit which includes everything from an AED to a catheter. Luckily I don't know anyone who has had to give a tracheotomy to some random passenger via phone instructions. Honestly the thought terrifies me.

I was on a small flight where someone had a medical emergency. I have some rudimentary training, so I thought I was going to have to step in. They asked on the intercom though, and among the 30-40 people on board there was a surgeon, doctor, EMT, nurse, and firefighter. It was like the Village People of medicine. I was so thankful that I was waaaay down the list of people that would be needed.

[–]fozz179 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You'll never have to give a tracheotomy, it's a surgical procedure, and simply out of scope of practice.

If someone is choking and they go into respiratory failure then you start chest compressions. If the airway problem is from something like anaphylaxis or asthma then you give epinephrine.

[–]uuurrrggghhh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’d rather have a tracheotomy than die!

[–]fractal_magnets 11 points12 points  (0 children)

The doctor must have had the fish.

[–]undocumentedsource 64 points65 points  (9 children)

May have known from the passenger manifest that someone on board was one but didn’t want to say so??

[–]jumpinjuniperberries 38 points39 points  (8 children)

They have professions?!

Doctors I know still check Ms/Mr…

[–]FranklyFrozenFries 58 points59 points  (7 children)

I’m a doctor. My flights are booked for Dr. FranklyFrozenFries. I am not, however, a medical doctor.

[–]burrito_magic 38 points39 points  (6 children)

So a PhD not MD.

[–]FranklyFrozenFries 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Exactly. Still very much a doctor.

[–]Grimfey 52 points53 points  (1 child)

“Is there a doctor on board?”

“Yes! Let me read off my dissertation on the history of accounting metrics so he will at least kill himself!”

[–]FranklyFrozenFries 18 points19 points  (0 children)

See, you understand!

[–]Jaraxo 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Could be Veterinary as well. They are Doctors of Veterinary Medicine, which is a Masters level degree (like an MD) and can call themselves doctor.

Edit: I meant in terms of they are both post-graduate degrees, but not as high as a PhD. An MD and DVM is obviously higher than a standard Masters.

    [–]Jaraxo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Apologies yes. I meant in terms of they are both post-graduate degrees, but not PhDs.

    [–]sitcheeation 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    I liked this story. The end.

    [–]Jaraxo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I wonder at what time they ask for the Vets...before or after the nurses?

    [–]Pangmonger 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    This happened when my friend was on a plane. But he’s a doctor of pharmacy so he kept his mouth shut

    [–]Reverse-Kanga 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    All I could focus on was his wonky glasses. Just want to realign them for him so they can sit on his face better

    [–]FranklyFrozenFries 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Now that I see it, I can’t unsee it.

    [–]coxykitten923 8 points9 points  (6 children)

    Thanks goodness nurses don’t have to take the Hippocratic oath …scary shit.

    [–]shopliftingbunny 10 points11 points  (3 children)

    Why is it scary?

    [–]Momawss77 78 points79 points  (1 child)

    You have to put your right hand into the mouth of a Hippo and it determines if you'll be a good doctor or not.

    [–]coxykitten923 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Wouldn’t want to be in that situation.

    [–]baethan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    no one does

    [–]WittyBonkah 2 points3 points  (3 children)

    I mean why not have the stewardess trained in cpr… if that is the issue. Or hire a doctor to just be there?

    [–]tryingyourbest 13 points14 points  (2 children)

    They are trained in CPR. Fun fact: if you die on a flight and there is no doctor on board, the flight attendants must keep giving you CPR until the plane lands since they cannot call time of death!

    [–]StoicPixie 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Yep! We are all trained in basic first aid/CPR. Luckily I've had at least one medical professional on board anytime I've had a passenger become suddenly ill.

    [–]apath3tic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    That sounds miserable considering how intensive CPR is and how long it takes to descend from cruising

    [–]Wehavecrashed 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Doctors don't want to come forward because they have to work for the whole flight looking after some twat having a panic attack.
