Did You Know?
People who have known allergies and previous severe allergic reactions often carry an epinephrine auto-injector with them. Epinephrine (also known as adrenalin) is a vasoconstrictor will regulate your heart rate and stop the spasms and swelling of the airways. The effect of epinephrine is immediate once given. Epinephrine is given over a muscular area (and intramuscular injection), usually the thigh. As a training rescuer, if you notice someone having an anaphylactic reaction, ask them if they have an epi pen and if they don’t, bring them immediately to the hospital or call for an ambulance.
