Anaphylaxis

This webpage includes links to:

Anaphylaxis is the most severe type of allergic reaction and should always be treated as a medical emergency. Anaphylaxis requires immediate treatment with adrenaline (epinephrine), which is injected into the outer mid-thigh muscle. This can be done by anyone, using an adrenaline injector device such as EpiPen or Anapen. If treatment with adrenaline is delayed, this can result in fatal anaphylaxis.
