General Neurology
With the ever increasing number of packed planes loaded with passengers of various ages and with various conditions, neurologists are often called to serve when a passenger has a medical condition on a flight. Given that neurologic issues are one of the most common conditions that a physician will encounter on a flight, the frequently asked question is how does a neurologist address such a situation? This HeadTalk explores various scenarios that may occur, what is on board most jets, and what resources a neurologist can access in these situations.
