In-flight Emergencies:
Good Samaritans at Altitude

Session Overview

There are more than 44,000 commercial flights tracked per day by air traffic controllers. Many caregivers and healthcare workers have had the experience of a flight attendant calling for help while in the air.  Dr. Robert Katzer will be delivering a world class presentation on what we need to know about caring for the public during an in-flight emergency. He is an Emergency Medicine physician, educator, and medical director for a busy fire and rescue program. Having heard him speak, our TMIT team gives him our highest recommendation.  Dr. Gregory Botz, the co-founder of the Med Tac Bystander Care program who also teaches in-flight emergency care, will provide his perspective along with reactions from our patient advocate representative.

We offer these online webinars at no cost to our participants.
