Extensive combined medical and flying knowledge?

Anyone out there with an extensive and I mean pretty extensive combination of flying (pressurized, specifically) and medical knowledge?

I need to quiz someone on a heath issue and and the effect flying may or may not having on it once’s I’m cleared. Specifically as a passenger on a commercial air carrier.



Try a Google search such as this one.

Sorry… it’s not psychological… and it a bit beyond webmd and google. It specifically has to do with pressurization and a post surgical thorocostomy.

Now that I know the specifics, try these:
pilotfriend.com/aeromed/medi … thorax.htm
professionalsoldiers.com/for … p?p=275326

There’s more - just enter the keywords *post surgical thoracotomy flying *into Google.

See PM Jim…

Might want to try PMing MeekRN

That’s just not right :smiley:

What me? Come on, he’s a fun guy! Kinda like HongKongCargo and all the voices in that kids head.

Appears to me he is saying it in jest :wink: That it’s “not right” that you would even think of such a wild and crazy thought, not that you are wrong.

Thanks for all the “advice…”

Saw my surgeon today and was signed off on as to all aspects of travel. FWIW… I drove myself to the ER on 7/27 with a fully collapsed left lung. Two weeks, four chest tubes and one surgery later, I’m back in one piece (minus a chunk of said lung…)

Very cool Jim, thanks for confirming…

Welcome back to the “airways” :smiley:

Wow, Bear Grylls has nothing on you! :smiley:

True… and I don’t have a camera crew following me either… lol
