Dr. Mehmet Oz jump into action Wednesday night when a passenger on his flight from New York to Las Vegas collapsed.

“I was grabbed by a stewardess on the plane after a 30 -year-old guy collapsed, ” he told Page Six on Thursday. “I got him to lie on his back and[ put] his feet up on emergency situations doors, and with that I began to get a reasonable pulse and blood pressure.”

The host of “The Dr. Oz Show, ” who was on his route to the Consumer Electronics Show, then used electrode pads from the plane’s Automated External Defibrillator to create a makeshift EKG test.

“I couldn’t tell if he was having a heart attack or not, ” Oz said. “His blood pressure was truly low but his heart rate was genuinely high.”

Oz, a cardiothoracic surgeon, was of the view that upon landing, the passenger was immediately escorted off the plane in a wheelchair and taken to the emergency room.

“I cares about a clot going to his lungs which is common in airliners, ” he said. “While he was laying on the ground he started to shake and he went from being clammy to he had a temperature of 103 by the time he got to the ER.”

Oz said he “stayed in touch” with the passenger after the incident, and found out man’s collapse was likely caused by the influenza. “The evaluation so far is leaning towards a bad influenza and a high fever caused his collapse, ” Oz said.
