Anaphylaxis is a potentially life threatening severe allergic reaction, that requires immediate treatment with adrenaline (epinephrine).
Anaphylaxis should always be treated as a medical emergency. Call an ambulance (000 in Australia or 111 in New Zealand) immediately after giving an adrenaline autoinjector.
Current ASCIA Action Plans are the 2018 versions, valid for use until the 'due for review date' on the plan. A 2016 or 2017 version of the Action plan is also valid in 2018 if the 'due for review date' is in 2018 or later.
