Step by step instructions for giving EpiPen adrenaline (epinephrine) autoinjectors are available below in English and other languages.
These translations were funded by an educational grant from the Sydney Children's Hospitals Network (SCHN).
The following translated documents include:
• Reduced injection time from 10 to 3 seconds
• Removal of the massage step after the injection
EpiPens with a 10 second label can continue to be used and should not be replaced unless they have been used, are just about to expire or have expired. All EpiPens should now be held in place for 3 seconds, regardless of the instructions on the label. However, if they are held for 10 seconds it will not affect the way that the adrenaline works.
