US Surgeon General gives first aid on Delta flight

Adams was on a flight from Fort Lauderdale to Jackson, Mississippi, when the flight attendant asked if there was a doctor on board.

At Adams' request, two physicians showed the governor how naloxone is administered by injection or nasal mist.

A passenger had lost consciousness, the surgeon general's office said, and required medical assistance.

Adams was on a flight from Fort Lauderdale to Atlanta to catch a connecting flight to Mississippi's capital city.

It was not immediately clear what situation Adams was referring to and what happened on the flight.

Adams, who has served as surgeon general since September of a year ago, is an anesthesiologist, according to his official biography.

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