Med Students Save Passenger From Medical Emergency Mid-Flight

A pair of medical students from Louisiana State University stepped up to help a passenger in need during a flight to Greece. The LSU Health Sciences Center recognized Heather Duplessis and Lauren Bagneris for using their skills to get the situation under control when the passenger had a medical emergency mid-flight.

When the call went out asking for medical professionals on the plane, no one responded, so the students volunteered. According to the school, the passenger had become light-headed and fell and Bagneris and Duplessis provided care, while communicating with a doctor on the ground about the passenter’s vitals.

In a Facebook post, LSU shares that they calmed the passenger and got her to take some juice and food. “The patient ended up feeling much better thanks to these two talented doctors in the making and their LSU medical education,” they write. “You do us proud!”
