A Study of 32 Food-Induced Anaphylaxis Deaths in Ontario; 1986-2000
Another PA.com member asked me to post the link to this study, done by Anaphylaxis Canada re deaths in Ontario, Canada:-
What was of interest to this fellow member is that a lot of deaths occurred because someone had to run 200 to 300 meters to get the Epi-pen, which would be a *good* argument when addressing schools about your PA child wearing their medication.
One thought that struck me about this though was if a death occurred because someone had to run 200 to 300 meters to get the Epi-pen, could it also not occur because someone had to run the same distance (or more) to get to the PA child who was wearing their Epi-pen? I'm not sure if that is equivalent or not.
