This Week- Accidental EpiPen Injections
Epinephrine is the drug of choice for the emergency treatment of severe allergic reactions (Type I) to insect stings or bites, foods, drugs, and other allergens. It can also be used in the treatment of anaphylaxis of unknown cause (idiopathic anaphylaxis) or exercise-induced anaphylaxis. When given intramuscularly or subcutaneously it has a rapid onset and short duration of action.
In this episode, tox expert Lisa Booze of the Maryland Poison Center provides information on what nurses can expect from a patient and what do in cases of accidental EpiPen injection. Follow the links provided for more detailed information.
