Anaphylaxis Review and EPI; A Match made in Heaven-Session 4-February 2nd 1500-1600 Hours

This session covers the underlying pathology of anaphylaxis, and allergic reactions. Additionally, we will review the various treatment modalities with particular attention towards Epinephrine. Many agencies have moved away from the Epinephrine auto-injector as it is cost prohibitive and instead moved to permitting BLS personnel to administer the medication after drawing it up traditionally. Let’s discuss how to implement such a training program in your agency
