Those are exactly the sort of issues that SkyDoc encountered when we drilled down into the problem.

For example, it was illegal at that time (and most likely still is) for a medic not on the US medical register to practice in the US – and that includes the skies over the US.

And then there was the issue of liability should there be a conflict of opinion between the medic and the senior flight crew regarding remedial action to be taken.

And a whole bunch more stuff I will not drone on about here.
