Question for Flight RN's & EMT-P's

  1. I posted this on the flight nursing thread, but also thought it would be good to post here.

    I have been flying twice in a ride a long program. The first day I was fine and didn't get sick. The second day I did fine on the way to the scene but coming back to the hospital from a 20 minute flight at about 5 minutes before landing I suddenly got sick and threw up. The flight crew said it is normal and even happens to them occasionally. The ride back was pretty bumpy and it was a very hot day heat index over 100. Is there anything I can do to try to prevent this? I did take some dramamine but it didn't work. Any suggestions? I am already hooked on doing this. It has been so much fun and rewarding, I would hate to not be able to do it . I will get to go up again when it is cooler the flight manager suggested it would probably be better for me then. Let me know your ideas.

    Tami
