Dr. Jerome Adams on flight to Jackson Mississippi after saving passenger

Surgeon General Jerome Adams, MD, helped a fellow passenger who had a medical emergency during a flight to Jackson, Miss., May 16, CNN reported.

When the flight staff of Delta flight 1827 needed a doctor, they got one: The "nation's doctor".

Dr. Adams tweeted Wednesday that he stepped up when the crew on his flight asked if there was a doctor on board to help the passenger.

Delta responded to Adams tweet, thanking him for his service: "Hello, Wow!"

The patient woke up, and Adams determined it was best for the plane to return to the gate and for the patient to go to a hospital for further evaluation.

A broadly smiling Vice Admiral Jerome M. Adams, M.D., M.P.H., the surgeon general of the United States, took to Twitter on Wednesday to deliver a bit of happy news.

One person made a video about the phone, showing off that it is real but that person didn't show off its screen capabilities. For its part, Hydrogen One will have a 5.7-inch screen capable of displaying a "4-view holographic content".

The Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant also tweeted: "Nice job, Dr. Adams!"

He added, "Patient doing well and like a good #USPHS officer, I was glad to be able to assist!"

The surgeon general has little power beyond the ability to call attention to serious public health problems and offer information and policy suggestions.

By training, Adams is an anaesthesiologist and was earlier a health commissioner in IN, before becoming the US Surgeon General.

Adams was traveling to MS for a panel discussion on opioid abuse. He took office on September 5.
