Doctors on a Plane Save Woman’s Life by Constructing Makeshift Ventilator Out of Nearby Parts

A normal flight to Jamaica turned into a life-saving endeavor after two anesthesiologists created a makeshift medical ventilator to save an elderly woman who had gone into respiratory arrest.
Matthew Stevenson and John Flanagan were on a JetBlu flight in January when the senior started having trouble breathing. A nurse who also happened to be aboard the plane tried to help the woman recover – but nothing would relieve the breathing distress.

Have to admire their “ingineering” in a very stressful situation.
If I get sick, can I have these fellows on my flight?
