Don't Leave Home Without . . .

AUGUST 01, 2003

For patients with asthma or allergies, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) has made the following recommendations when planning a trip:

? Have a physical before the trip (if the patient has active allergy symptoms or unstable asthma)

? Pack medications in a carry-on bag; always bring an extra supply of medicines

? Carry a peak flow meter, an asthma control plan, and the physician?s phone number

? Allow for time differences so that medication dosage schedules remain constant if the traveler is crossing several time zones

? Continue allergy shots (if the patient is traveling for extended periods)

? Obtain the name of an AAAAI allergist in the destination area by calling Physician Referral and Information at 800-822-2762 or by visiting the Physicians Referral System at www.aaaai.org
