The New York Times (7/31, Yin, Subscription Publication) reports that when youngsters “experience serious allergy attacks, known as anaphylaxis, parents, teachers, emergency responders and other caregivers often fail to administer epinephrine – even to children who had previously experienced anaphylaxis and been prescribed an epinephrine autoinjector,” researchers found. After “analyzing more than 400 patient records of children and young adults from Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus,” OH, investigators “found that only 36 percent of patients experiencing anaphylaxis received epinephrine before arriving at the emergency department.” The findings were published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
