    If you need the benedryl that quickly, don't just swallow it, chew those nasty little bitter pills and wash down with water etc., it's awful tasting but you'll get it into your system much quicker.

    EpiPens can be hard for people to get. It would be best if there was easier access to EpiPens. A Dr once refused to refill my prescription even though my allergist said I needed one. I also have a friend who has anaphylaxis reactions, but doesn't carry an EpiPen. We need to make these life saving devices more accessible!

    OMG, poor Doc. Having to gear up for performing a makeshift cric on a plane, with little experience with the procedure. Sure, poor guy, but he's under the care of a doctor, so he probably feels as safe as he can under the circumstnaces, but poor Dr. Mike who needs to be ready for this stuff. I'm glad the guy was fine, but he must feel bummed out that he can't eat mammalian meat any more.

    My story: Last year I was walking to Starbucks in an airport at the very end of my preliminary year in internal medicine after a mission trip (going into Ophthalmology, so starting to adapt the mindset of lower-paced elective surgeries and whatnot), and I had **just** split ways with an IM attending who went to one of those fancy member clubs/she did not hear the subsequent overhead call. I hear the call overhead asking for a doctor urgently and happened to be walking near the gate where the incident was. It ended up being syncope with regained consciousness by the time I got there (but scary as patient was on blood thinners/had history of bypass surgery) with straightforward acute management. But man-oh-man after that feeling of being solo in an emergency situation, I will forever review the ACLS protocols/acute care no matter how far out I get from general medicine! It's an important responsibility no matter how specialized you get.

    Back when peanuts were still a thing on planes I witnessed someone go in to anaphylaxis. Scary part was, if my memory serves me right, they hadn't even come in contact with the peanuts. It was SO SCARY. I genuinely thought I was watching someone die. I was like eight. And we were flying from BWI to Fort Myers Florida. Everything ended up really good and we landed in Atlanta. As it was the closest and most available from where we were. It's so hard to believe planes don't have epipens. I'm curious if they did back then when they had peanuts as a snack. Because I'd not...that's STUPID.

    Perhaps he should have made an announcement asking if anyone on board had an EPI Pen. Food Allergies are some common these days that many kids carry EpiPens.

Because Meredith Grey can. Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 Episode 20 “In the Air Tonight”

    Benadryl has mammal biproducts, which may cause another allergic reaction. Due to this, depending on his sensitivity to red meat and animals biproducts, and it could another allergic reaction.

    While I have never needed to use any of the epi-pens I was given as a kid, I did constantly play with the dummy pen that teaches you how to use them. Lol it's literally an epi pen sans the needle so slamming the auto injector part into your thigh was too satisfying.

    I have a strange thing that happens where if I sweat a lot I break out into hives and one time it got really bad in gym class. I was walking with two girls and one noticed my neck turning red and she was like "whoa whoa are you ok? Did you maybe eat something you're allergic to?" And I'm like "no I don't have any food allergies that i know of this just happens when i sweat." She responds with, "well i don't like this," she then pulls me over to where that water fountains and air conditioner are and tells the other girl to go get the gym teacher while she is making sure that I'm okay. The teacher comes over and asks me the same questions about maybe eating something I'm allergic to and I give the same answer that i gave the girl so she says "I don't like that your neck is turning red." So she has the first girl walk me down to the nurses office and the other girl grabs my bags for me out of the locker room. I explain the whole situation to the nurse and she decided to keep me in her office for observation in case my throat started closing and also to see if the hives went away because at that point my entire body was covered in hives. So I am in the nurses office reading and none of the hives were going away but my middle school has a policy where they will not give you stuff like benadryl without written consent from a parent or guardian so because the hives aren't going away and they are actually getting worse. She calls my mom and says "hey your daughter is in here and she is having a bad reaction to something, she says it is her sweat. Can you send someone to pick her up and take her home." So my grandma comes and gets me, gives me benadryl, and takes me over to her house so she can keep an eye on me where I watch pokemon: origins and then pass out. The next day my mom sent me in with a note saying that it was okay for the nurse to give me benadryl if it happened again. It did happen again about a month later. The gym teacher sent me to the nurse again but this time after waiting she gave me benadryl and I nearly fell asleep in every class after that.

    So can anyone creditable answer a question I have? Basically I'm wondering if mild non life threatening Anaphylaxis is a thing? Cause I'm regularly getting unexplained hives at the moment and sometimes they will make me feel pretty weird. Just wondering if it is something I have to take more seriously.

    Flight attendants can’t inject anything, so if there were an epi pen you’d still need a Dr. to administer it. I know some airlines have a kit with intubation equipment, maybe not Delta? Also, typical passenger reaction to care more about a diversion than about an ill person. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  47. A.Grubie

    A.GrubieIl y a 10 jours

    Wouldnt a basic human reaction if you had any knowledge on using an epi pen, be immediately doing that? They should, without a doubt be trained to handle these emergencies. But even when that isn't the case, the odds of there being no people aboard with experience using epi pens is statistically low.

    @Aanab Tahir If you really wanted to check for any, you could get an allergy test done but they are awful to get done even if you aren't allergic to anything you're tested for. Anyway that is not the problem here. I've since looked up this idea and you *do* need a written prescription from your doctor in order to bring an EpiPen onto a plane. In fact in the US you can't even obtain one unless you have a prescription. Just make a travel-safe mini med kit and stick allergy medication in it, just make sure to label everything.

  56. Aanab Tahir

    Aanab TahirIl y a 9 jours

    @Linlupin Idk if i have allergies since i'm very basic id try new things and i don't eat on planes anyway. BUT i could anywhere, my body is sensitive to a lot of things including food. But even if i don't have allergies id want anyone to die. :)

  57. Linlupin

    LinlupinIl y a 9 jours

    It’s good to care about situations that don’t directly impact you, I know of too many adults who haven’t grasped that concept. However If you don’t have any allergies, I’m suspecting it would be difficult to not only obtain an EpiPen but also to bring it onto a plane. I could be wrong of course, I don’t have any allergies of that sort.
