Dominate the most common in-flight emergencies with tools and tips from this classic Curbsiders episode. Our guest, Angelica Zen MD, (formerly an IM Chief Resident at UCLA), recounts a harrowing tale of heroism at 30,000 feet and schools us on how to throw down in an in-flight emergency. We review what’s available in the standard medical kit, common conditions encountered, and the medical legal implications of responding to in-flight emergencies. This episode is a must listen before you next step on a plane. Original air date November 21, 2016.
