Attending In Flight Emergencies. Part of Our Hippocratic Oath?

By Expatdoctormom1 @ExpatDoctorMom


You or someone you now has a sudden medical emergency on a flight.  In the moment you are probably not thinking about anything else.. aside from your well being.  You hope that someone on board is medically trained.

Should doctors on board be obligated to attend to  such emergencies?  Should they be asked to produce credentials?  If so, before or after the emergency?  Should doctors be liable for free services provided or be protected by the “Good Samaritan” law?  Or should doctors charge for their services?
