A Sick Passenger Needed A Doctor. So The US Surgeon General Volunteered

It turned out there was: the U.S. Surgeon General himself.

As Surgeon General, Dr. Adams oversees the operations of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, which has approximately 6,500 uniformed health officers who serve in almost 600 locations around the world to promote, protect and advance the health and safety of our nation and our world.

It was not immediately clear what situation Adams was referring to and what happened on the flight. He also went on to thank the "doctors, nurses, and techs who step up each and every day to respond to emergencies on flights".

The Surgeon General tweeted about his experience, saying "They asked if there was a Doctor on board to help with a medical emergency", he wrote.

Delta said in a statement that the incident took place on Flight 1827, which was traveling from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Atlanta.

But ultimately, Adams said he was just doing his duty and was "glad to be able to assist". "Delta thanks the Surgeon General for volunteering his services in assisting this customer".

As Health Commissioner, Dr. Adams presided over Indiana's efforts to deal with the state's unprecedented HIV outbreak.

The vice admiral, an anesthesiologist, was traveling to MS for a panel discussion on opioid abuse, ABC News reported.

Adams was sworn into office by Vice President Mike Pence in September 2017.
