Excellent presentation - have never had to use an EpiPen as such so really good to know what that would be like - will also help for education of pt/family. Good point to remember that the allergen may still be present within the pt and so can continue to cause issues until it is 'expelled' or metabolised fully.

This resource is beneficial as it outlines the importance of educating our patients on their anaphylaxis action plans and efficient use of their epi pens. It also helps in reviewing the common triggers and the signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis, as well as the management
