    Hey, can you review this story about a doctor who saved a man on a plane? Awesome Doctor, can't believe he remembered all that information and was able to help the passenger. Incredible!

        I'm super curious, PLEASE talk about your trip to Israel! What medical breakthroughs are you talking about? I'd love to know!

        Bless your heart for saving that man's life!

          Great job Dr. Mike. I just realized I might have alpha-gal allergy, or something along those lines. I will definitely consult with my physician, to see if it's the case. I don't find it too outlandish for me, as I have terrible reactions whenever I eat red meat (though not life threatening, just uncomfortable), and I have also been bitten by ticks a lot since I was a child.

          Not sure if anyone knows this, but do some types of mammalian meat contain more alpha-gal than others? I have extreme reactions to lamb meat, and also quite bad for beef, but I don't react as bad to pork.

                It’s ridiculous that they don’t have epi-pens on board and I’m not sure if there are rules in place already, but flight attendants should be trained in basic first aid. There won’t always be a doctor on board and so much time would have gone by even if they decided to land somewhere else that it could’ve easily ended differently.

                    You should do a video on how important it is to be charitable and help raise global healthcare. Check out the NGO my family started to bring electricity to a hospital in Uganda and hopefully support its maternity unit. A shout out or endorsement from you could really help our fundraising and in turn save hundreds of lives in the Ibanda, Uganda area. (A friend showed me your channel during a stressful finals week and it's pretty great, thanks!)

                        Hi Doctor Mike, I absolutely love your videos, thank you for sharing your knowledge and thoughts and for the sacrifices you make for patients🤗

                        For about the last 5 months, I've been experiencing fever like sensations especially around submissions and deadlines (I'm in uni), but not having an actual fever. It feels like I'm heating up, especially my upper body, and when I feel my forehead it feels hot, but to other's it feels normal. I've not had any major illnesses and do not become sick often. And I low blood pressure. Can you think of any reasons why this may be happening and what I could do about it?

                              Well now you have to watch House season 3 ep 18 ("Airborne"). Can't say it's one of my faves, but definitely relevant to this adventure.

                                Forgot to add the part of the story where after it was identified as Dr. Mike on the plane half the women and some men started faking heart attacks to get mouth to mouth

                                                    I'm honestly stunned as to how there wasn't an autoinjector aboard a commercial flight.

                                                            Dr. Mike: For about a year now the US has had a shortage of epipens available for patients. I work in a pharmacy and due to this shortage we have been required to remove all auto injectors from our emergency kits. They have decided to replace them with vials. It’s crazy that after a year this vary major shortage hasn’t been resolved. If we were to have a patient have an anaphylactic shock we would have to figure out the patients weight in order to deliver the correct dosage. Which inhibits us from having a quick response to an emergency situation. Needless to say I have no clue if the same has happened to airlines making it not an option to have auto injectors but regardless it’s still not okay.

I was prescribed it for the 2nd time in 2months for bronchitis, so I assumed the shortness of breath was due to the flu and bronchitis. I assumed the incredible itching and glowing like a beacon was due to something I’d eaten. (Duh!) I was having trouble talking to my partner on the phone and he told me to ring ‘dial-a-doctor’ (a free after hours service we have here in Aus). I just didn’t have the energy and decided I’d be ok. I wasn’t thinking very clearly, but luckily had a realisation that I possibly had hypoxia and rang for an ambulance. By this time I could barely speak and was so tired, but luckily I was near the door to unlock it ready for the ambos. I recall still not feeling too bothered by what was happening and was worried the ambos would think I was wasting their time. Long story short, I now list penicillins as an allergy and carry an epipen! (More because I was given one than the chance of ever needing it!)
