The Air Travel Trigger Effect: Discover The Secret Effect That Kills Thousands Of Airline Passengers Every Year

The Air Travel Trigger Effect: Discover The Secret Effect That Kills Thousands Of Airline Passengers Every Year


However fit and healthy you may be, this book shows how to avoid illness and even death as a result of the trigger effect caused by air travel. Many air trips are ruined every year as a result of air travel illness that can sometimes be fatal. It is a little known fact that more people die from in-flight illness than from the sum total of all kinds of air calamities. Thousands of people die every year from the trigger effect; that is, from diseases or medical conditions that can be tipped or triggered into a critical phase during or after an air trip. Travel preparations plus long waits at the airport, customs and baggage handling, as well as the fears many people have about flying, often mean that air passengers become stressed easily. Add to this cabin pressurization, poor oxygen in the air, cramped seating, and some susceptible medical condition, and you have a powerful recipe for a potential medical emergency in the air. Worldwide, the trigger effect accounts for thousands of fatalities. For example, in the USA alone there are about 14,000 medical emergencies per year causing about 350 in-flight fatalities on the nine major USA airlines. This figure far outnumbers the annual toll of fatalities caused by air accidents in the USA (source: “U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, Moving America safely: 2005 annual performance report. FAA, 2005″).”Between 2002 and 2007, just two European airlines recorded 10,189 in-flight medical emergencies. This is more than 2,000 events per year for just two airlines” (source: Surgical and medical emergencies on board European aircraft: a retrospective study of 10189 cases, Critical Care 2009, 13:R3 doi:10.1186/cc7690).Most large European airlines experience about 10 to 20 in-flight deaths per year. This is below average compared to many other airlines. Research shows that over 1% of airline passengers admitted to hospital within a day of leaving an aircraft end up dead. But airlines generally do not admit to having any in-flight fatal

According to one estimate, in 2012, approximately 3 billion or over one third of total B2C travel was spent on online travel products with air travel alone accounting for 61% or 1 billion.
