What Happens If You Get Seriously Ill on a Plane?

Carole Adams, a flight attendant on Southwest Airlines, gives her first person account.

A passenger approached her and said she didn’t feel well, was weak and had pain in her midchest under her arms.

Everyone knows flight attendants are trained to do much more than serve drinks and fetch pillows. This reassuring blog explains the controlled and professional manner exhibited in what may have been a life-threatening situation.

She says, “Were we scared? Concerned for the patient, yes. Scared, no.”

I didn’t know there was such a company like MedLink to provide assistance for inflight medical emergencies.

Since we fly Southwest a lot, I was glad to learn this information.
