  • Title
    • Prospective study of accidental food allergic reactions in Irish children attending an allergy clinic
  • Summary
    • Children with food allergy are at risk of accidental ingestion of allergenic food everyday. Parents and children are taught how to avoid and how to respond in an emergency. The severity of the reaction that they may experience is determined by many things and cannot be predicted. This risk of un-defined, sudden illness, acts as a psychological burden to children and their families. Perceiving all environments to be a threat to their children leads parents, often, to overprotect them, resulting in isolation and social exclusion and heightened anxiety on the part of the child. This is unacceptable at a time of development when social interaction is critical. To date, our knowledge on risks of food allergic reactions in different environments such as schools, day cares, is extrapolated primarily from data collected in other countries. This data is not necessarily directly applicable to similar environments in Ireland and may exaggerate or down play the real risk. The purpose of this study is to prospectively collect for 1 year, standardised data from patients (aged 2 to 16 yr) attending the Dublin allergy clinics, regarding accidental reactions, behaviours that led to the accident occurring, and the response taken by the families. These patients will all have previously been seen in our clinic, advised of their food allergies and trained in standard avoidance measures. The data collected will help us to better advice families, and other stake holders in child safety on the true nature of high and low risk environments for the Irish allergic childhood population. _ Aims: To establish the prevalence of accidental allergic reactions to food in children already identified as food allergic. To identify high risk environments in Irish society for children with food allergy. Objectives To identify and recruit food allergic children for this study Study design: In this study we will recruit patients and their parents from the allergy clinic at AMNCH with additional candidates recruited from the allergy clinic at Our Lady's Children's Hospital. These two clinics see all allergic children in the public system, from Dublin and Leinster and also numerous form the other 3 provinces. The rest are primarily seen in Cork University Hospital with small numbers also being seen in Galway University Hospital and Drogheda. Both new and return patients will be recruited while attending at the opd clinic and during day ward attendance. Patients who have attended the clinic in the past 6 months will have their case notes reviewed to establish if they meet criteria and will be contacted about the study.
