In recent times, dramatic events involving aircrew exposed to FUME EVENTS have been very difficult to prove, even in the light of overwhelming evidence supporting the claim. Grounded? Now is the time to determine your individual Cholinesterase reference value.

Cholinesterase: Why measure it?
Following exposure to neurotoxic substances during a FUME EVENT, Cholinesterase is the benchmark biomarker used amongst others by French administrations in procedures to recognize workplace accidents or occupational illnesses. To best use this biomarker, establishing an individual reference value is crucial.
 

Why the urgency ?
The CoViD-19 crisis has seen an unprecedented grounding of aircrews. Now is an ideal time to establish your individual Cholinesterase reference value, as a minimum period of 30 days “without exposure” is required by the Health Authorities to allow a valid comparison. Once you will have resumed your duties this value will be almost impossible to establish. In case of a suspected FUME EVENT, the result of a new blood test can then be compared to your original individual reference value.
