Hello All,

This past week I attended the annual convention of the American College of 
Emergency Physicians in Chicago.

Aside from learning more than I needed to know about Anthrax, I attended 
several seminars on Expedition medicine.  There was a very knowledgeable 
speaker from Stanford Univ who has been the Expedition doc on numerous 
hikes, treks, mountaineering, up/down river etc trips.  His first kernel of 
info to the attendees was to ask if we knew what was the most common cause 
of death on all these exotic trips?  The answer was allergic reactions from 
insect stings!

I've been reading all the postings on this topic and while most have some 
valuable information, please be aware that taking out a yellow jacket nest 
can be lethal, and you can have had no major reaction the last time you 
were stung and have a bad reaction the next time.
