Catecholamine Mediated Myocarditis is by far the most serious and fatal of all the medical conditions incurred from Aerotoxic Syndrome: related Fume Events. Many in the initial stages of the organophosphate poisoning exposures will not see this symptom materialize until severe and excessive accumulative Fume Events have occurred. However, once the patient is in this stage, the condition is often chronic, it does not go away and becomes the main cause that ends the life for countless disabled and injured Aerotoxic Syndrome victims around the world. The Aerotoxic Syndrome diagnosis is still only accepted in parts of Europe. The blanket accepted USA diagnosis is called Organophosphate Poisoning of the Brain, Lung, Heart, Skin, and Eyes. … More Aerotoxic Syndrome: Catecholamine Mediated Myocarditis
A key issue in domestic toxic cabin air litigation is whether state law negligence standards apply or whether a plaintiff’s claims are preempted by federal law under the theory of implied field preemption.
One of the first issues commonly litigated is whether the case will be heard in federal or state court. Another issue many of the injured faces is the fact that “Aerotoxic Syndrome” is not an officially recognized medical diagnosis in the US Court system. However, Organophosphate Poisoning is an accepted term. The next Burden of Proof entails showing the direct cause of this type of injury in a court of law. It will remain impossible to monitor or find the root cause for toxic fume event exposures until the industry implements a cabin air sensor monitoring system. … More Toxic Cabin Air Litigation Continues to Recirculate Through the Courts
The Nazis developed organophosphates during World War II as nerve gas agents. (Sarin gas is in this family of chemicals.) After the war, the chemical companies adapted the organophosphates to be used as pesticides, primarily as insecticides. Chlorpyrifos is an organophosphate pesticide first registered as an insecticide in the U.S. for both agricultural and residential uses, before Silent Spring and adoption of environmental and health standards in U.S. laws governing pesticide use in 1965.
The pesticide in question, chlorpyrifos, is a nasty piece of work. It’s an organophosphate, a class of bug killers that work by “interrupting the electrochemical processes that nerves use to communicate with muscles and other nerves,” as the Pesticide Encyclopedia puts it. Chlorpyrifos is also an endocrine disrupter, meaning it can cause “adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects,” according to the National Institutes of Health. … More Cabin Crew Survival Guide for dealing with Chlorpyrifos Chemical Exposure
Canary in the Cabin:
Did you know that there are telltale signs that your plane may be soon to have a Fume Event? There are indicators but you have to be paying attention to your passengers and you must have situational awareness. If you continue to fly on a plane where there are what I call chronic “Sick Rows” then do not ignore this problem. You notice that there seems to be an odd coincidence going on in a single row flight after flight. A group of passengers in one row of three on aircraft left midway in the back of the cabin typically around row 18 to 23 somewhere in that area keeps getting sick flight after flight. … More Canary in the Cabin

Pilot Study published today from Harvard. Their research states that these bizarre health effects encountered by pilots are causing plane crashes resulting in loss of all life onboard. However, in particular, that these crashes occurred simply because these Pilots were all depressed, suicidal and mentally disturbed. After reviewing his research papers on the Pilot Depression Study and the Passenger Cabin Air Quality Study, it was very disturbing that his only focus on environmental factors was Ozone and Flame Retardant interior chemicals. There was not one mention of the more serious chemical issues for passengers and crew which are the Organophosphates, Hydraulic Fluids, Kerosene, Oil and the many other toxic cocktails of lubricants. … More Harvard Airline Pilot Study: Depression or Poisoned by Cabin Air ?

It has been nearly six decades since “Bleed Air” made it’s debut into Aviation starting in 1963. Once Bleed Air was introduced for commercial airlines this was followed by approximately 2% of new Fume Events worldwide. The engine wet seal maintenance replacement guidelines were extended in 1978 from 5,000 flight hours to the 30,000 or greater … More Airbus plans to compete with Boeing 787 Dreamliner offers Bleed Free A320 NEO
