Travel information for people at risk of anaphylaxis

July 20, 2017:  

The recent report of a child having an allergic reaction on a flight who required treatment with adrenaline has highlighted the need for planning ahead when travelling with allergies.

The ASCIA travel plan and checklist have been developed to assist passengers at risk of severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) who need to carry adrenaline (epinephrine) autoinjectors (e.g. EpiPen®) on airline flights.  The ASCIA travel plan should be used in conjunction with an ASCIA Action Plan for Anaphylaxis (personal) and both plans need to be completed by a medical or nurse practitioner.

ASCIA travel plans, action plans, checklists and other resources are available at www.allergy.org.au/anaphylaxis

Other travel information for people at risk of anaphylaxis is available from Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia at www.allergyfacts.org.au/allergy-management/risk/travelling-with-allergies
