As we’ve learned since. I don’t doubt t...

Re: Southwest flight diverted due to human heart left on board

I’m a heart transplant surgeon. There’s something wrong about the story. At a donor operation, a heart can be removed for later use in a patient who needs a heart transplant. The elapsed time from removal from the donor patient to being “sewn in” to the recipient patient ordinarily can be no longer ...

Heart surgeon (who does heart transplants) here. Terrific news today. Wishing Oscar Munoz a speedy recovery! The initial media reports suggested Mr. Munoz had a heart attack, or acute myocardial infarction, in medical terms. Reading between the lines, it appears that his heart function was severely ...

Boarding The Wrong Plane

The other day, I was traveling on a very early morning flight from my hometown to the airline's hub. Everybody boarded the 717 like usual, the jetway was pulled away, and just as we were ready f...
