RML Syndrome

Hi, My four year old son was diagnosed with RML Syndrome back in Febuary. He has been receiving chest physio every day since December. He is on inhalers also. Our specialist is out of work sick at the moment so an appointment we had for the 28/02/13 was cancelled. We will be sent out a new appointment as soon as the hospital gets word of the specialist return to work. The specialist has been absent since January. My question is we are due to fly in the next two weeks. Is it safe for my son to fly?

With limited information on your son’s clinical status, including his chest X-ray and his response to chest physio I would be very reluctant to conclude that it would be safe for him to fly.

That approval to fly, or not, should be based on objective evidence of the present state of his lung condition, as determined by a physician who need not necessarily be a lung specialist.

Without that, I would not put him at risk on an airplane, especially if it is a long flight.

Good luck
