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

The surgeon tweeted about the entire experience by writing, "They asked if there was a Doctor on board to help with a medical emergency". He had also worked to tamp down panic in the United States over the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, Bernstein reported. However, Adams did note that the patient was "doing well".

The U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Jerome Adams, jumped in Wednesday, when a passenger aboard a Delta flight lost consciousness.

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

Flight staff called for help, and Adams, along with two nurses, stepped in to help evaluate the passenger.

U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams was on the right plane at the right time. Adams helped the passenger off the plane and telephoned their spouse with a recommendation to go to the hospital.

The airline also thanked Adams via social media. We certainly thank you for volunteering as well as your service.

He has public events there Thursday, including a panel discussion on opioid abuse.

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant praised the anesthesiologist and former IN health commissioner.
