Surgeon general helps fellow passenger who passed out on flight

Last Wednesday, passengers on a Delta flight were waiting for the plane to take off at the Lauerdale-Hollywood International Airport when flight crew alerted of a medical emergency.

Earlier this year, Dr. Adams issued a public health advisory encouraging more people to routinely carry the drug naxolone, which can restore normal breathing and save the life of someone during an opioid overdose.

The Surgeon General tweeted about his experience, saying "They asked if there was a Doctor on board to help with a medical emergency", he wrote. Adams, who has served as surgeon general since September 2017, tweeted that he was "glad to be able to assist". Delta said in a statement that the incident took place on Flight 1827, which was traveling from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Atlanta.

Delta also responded to the tweet thanking Adams for volunteering to step in during the scary situation.

The surgeon general has little power beyond the ability to call attention to serious public health problems and offer information and policy suggestions.
