VanderVeer in right place at right time to save life
Lake Oswego doctor takes charge on plane to help heart attack victim
By Cliff Newell
The Lake Oswego Review, May 31, 2012
Dr. Elizabeth VanderVeer proved she could still practice "real medicine" when she was faced with an emergency situation on an airplane.
How much value does a human life have?
For Dr. Elizabeth VanderVeer of Lake Oswego it was worth a crumpled certificate and a $50 discount on her next air flight trip.
But more important, her deed of saving a man's life gave her an affirmation of her skills as a doctor, that she could still perform "real medicine" and could have an answer for colleagues who criticized her for leaving regular practice and establishing an image enhancement center. Saving a life is about real as medicine gets.
"They called me 'Barbie,'" said VanderVeer, who is licensed to practice internal medicine, a graduate of OHSU and a staff member at St. Vincent's Hospital. "They said I wasn't practicing real medicine and that I was selling out. I was catching a lot of flack. It was pretty embarrassing."
In a way, VanderVeer could laugh all the way to the bank. Over the past eight years she has developed VanderVeer Center into a tremendously successful practice with 25 employees. They turn out a nonstop line of people with improved faces, bodies and self-esteem. In addition, VanderVeer is widely recognized as an expert in her field and is in great demand at conventions. As her operations officer Shannon Monihan said, "Elizabeth is a phenomenal public speaker."
Still, the carping stung. Despite her blonde good looks, VanderVeer did not like being classified as a "Barbie" doctor.
But being the great communicator that she is, VanderVeer got on a flight to Las Vegas on April 11 to speak at a convention. She settled into her seat on the second row of coach and ordered not one but two cups of coffee because she needed the extra caffeine jolt to get her going on a big day. So far, so normal. VanderVeer was in a jovial mood. Viva Las Vegas.
That is until she heard someone call out, "Oh my! Is there a doctor on the plane?"
"I perked up into doctor mode," VanderVeer said.
Then she heard, "This man looks dead."
"I saw this gray figure slumped over," VanderVeer said. "I climbed over the guy who was sitting next to me and grabbed the man's wrist. There was no response, and he was as gray as gray could be. He was drenched in sweat. He was dripping. He was having a massive heart attack."
Everyone was stunned. She looked around and saw only frozen faces.
"It was a surreal moment," VanderVeer said. "No one was doing anything. No one was doing anything and this was a good-sized guy. I needed help."
Finally, the shock wore off a bit and some passengers helped carry the victim to the back row and laid him down, with his feet slightly elevated. They were already a half hour into their flight and VanderVeer said, "There was no question of going back."
The stricken man opened his eyes, but he still had no pulse, was sweating profusely and had trouble breathing. VanderVeer gave him some oxygen and placed an aspirin under his tongue.
"Every minute I was asking, 'How are we going to keep this man alive?'" VanderVeer said. "But we had no drugs to revive him. There was no crash cart on the plane. I had a limited tool box."
She took his blood pressure. It was 60 over 40. He was barely alive. He was suffering chest pains. Then his blood pressure weakly climbed upward to 80 over 60, and VanderVeer put a nitroglycerine tablet under his tongue. No one was sure what to do, but they asked VanderVeer and she said, "If it was me, I would proceed to Vegas. We've done everything we can to stabilize him."
The man clung to life. His blood pressure rose to 100 over 60 and his pulse went up to 55 as the plane began its descent.
"I was hunched down next to him in a space that was much more narrow than my hips," VanderVeer said.
This was extremely painful for her since she is scheduled to have hip replacement surgery.
She was also covered with the man's sweat ... "and here I was going to speak at a cosmetics conference."
Blessedly, the plane finally landed in Las Vegas, and VanderVeer stayed with the victim until an ambulance arrived to transport him to a hospital. The grateful flight attendant asked her what she wanted.
"I told her I would still like my coffee," VanderVeer said. "She said, 'The coffee has all been put away. Is there anything else I can get you?' I told her, 'No, I still want my coffee.'"
While VanderVeer's coffee craving went unanswered, the airline did give her a certificate that said "Good Samaritan Award."
Monihan soon arrived on a flight that had seen much less action.
"When I got to Las Vegas, Elizabeth was all amped up," Monihan said. "She said, 'Oh my god, Shannon, I just saved a man's life!' I saw this crumpled certificate where she was given the choice of getting $50 or an air mile credit."
Then a passenger came up to VanderVeer and gushed, "I don't know what we'd do without nurses like you!"
"I said 'Thank you,'" VanderVeer said. "But I had been doing things only a doctor could do. I had been calling the shots for two hours and giving instructions on emergency treatment. I finally got to put to use all of the training I'd received."
After after all this, the sweat-soaked doctor went to deliver her inspirational speech to the cosmetics convention. If her heroism did not pay off in big rewards, it did give a great boost to VanderVeer's morale.
"I showed that I had not lost my skills," she said. "I can still save a life. The experience was very validating."
And one more special thing.
"My kids are proud of me."

Have you ever looked in the mirror and noticed the "ponem" (face) your "bubbe" used to pinch has drastically changed? Gone is the clear skin atop apple-shaped cheeks, replaced by dull, dry skin peppered with age spots and melasma (that beautiful "mask of pregnancy!")
Many of us wake up one morning later in life and feel like our skin has changed overnight. Brown spots and age spots seemingly appear out of nowhere. What may seem like it is the result of a recent sun tan is actually the appearance of deep sun damage accumulated over decades of exposure - starting when we were tots playing at the Bronx Zoo; to the teen years of baby oil and iodine, (wonder no more how I know about that combo!) and on to our use of tanning beds and our need to come back from any sunny vacation with a tan.
The brown damage we see on our skin is the result of repeated exposure to the sun and stimulation of the cells that make melanin - thus producing a brown spot. These spots can be prevented, managed and cured.
FIRST: Prevention. The truth hurts: There is no such thing as "safe" sun, including tanning beds. The only sunscreen I use and recommend is clear zinc oxide (such as Epionce® SPF 30 or 50). Zinc is the only ingredient in sunscreen that provides 100% protection against UVA and UVB rays. The good news is that we can now get clear zinc oxide - we no longer have to look like the Jones Beach lifeguard with the white stripes. Zinc reflects the sun off our skin rather than absorbing the sunlight. Even a baby can safely wear zinc sunscreen. I recently took my own "babies" now 14 and 17, on a sunny vacation and despite the protests, I slathered them with zinc sunscreen before they ventured outside. It was well worth the complaining to avoid the agony of a teenage burn!
SECOND: Management. Once damage has occurred, you have several options to manage mild sun damage (don't forget to use zinc sunscreen daily to prevent future damage.) You can lighten some melasma and brown spots with a variety of prescription and over-the-counter products. You also can use medical peels and medical microdermabraision to keep the discoloration at a minimum. I recommend wearing a liquid foundation daily to give your face an even tone and protect your face from further UV radiation (my personal favorite is Lancome® - it makes your skin look and feel like velvet).
FINALLY: "Cure." The definitive treatment for removing sun damage is a variety of devices including non-invasive, no downtime lasers such as Intense Pulsed Light, which lifts the damage in a safe, effective wa, leaving you with dewy, spotless skin. You can also get more aggressive treatment of sun damage with an ablative laser, such as the Erbium Pixel Laser or the CO2 Fractionated Laser, which involves downtime. Lasers are highly effective, but have associated risks that need to be discussed with your health care provider.
In summary, the sun and it's damage should be taken very seriously. It is the number one cause of skin aging, and melanoma is sharply on the rise each year. Always get an annual skin check up with your doctor, and use the above tips to keep damage to a minimum. Even if you envy the deep, brown tan of another, you will be the envy of all when you age gracefully with creamy, spotless skin!
