On “Healthcare Professionals and In-Flight Medical Emergencies: Resources, Responsibilities, Goals, and Legalities as a Good Samaritan”
AbstractTo the Editor: We read with interest the article by de Caprariis et al that appeared in
the January 2019 issue of the Southern Medical Journal.1 The authors provide an
authoritative review of matters of importance to healthcare professionals who respond to in-flight emergencies, including expected resources on board US commercial carriers, goals of in-flight emergency care, a perspective on the in-flight standard of care, and legal considerations regarding professional liability relevant to “good Samaritans” who respond to calls for assistance.
