Skies Not-So-Friendly for Passengers With Nut Allergies
Date:3/15/2013

the study was that a common and effective treatment for severe allergic reactions -- epinephrine -- is underused on airline flights. Only 13 percent of the passengers who suffered an allergic reaction received epinephrine.

"Despite that 98 percent of passengers had a personal source of epinephrine available, epinephrine was underused to treat a reaction," Greenhawt said. "Flight crews were not always readily alerted to reactions when they occurred [50 percent of cases], but interestingly, when they were notified, it was associated with a higher odds that epinephrine was used to treat the reaction."

He said he hopes the findings inspire airlines to consider how they could work with passengers to reduce risk. Perhaps one solution is to train crew to be more proactive, Greenhawt concluded.
