If in doubt, always give adrenaline. A dose of adrenaline given using an AAI into the muscle is safe and potentially life-saving. If medical and parental consent are not in place, then dial 999 for advice.
After giving adrenaline:
- Always call for an ambulance (999)
- Do not move the pupil, as standing someone up with anaphylaxis has triggered cardiac arrest
A person receiving an adrenaline injection should always be taken to hospital for monitoring afterwards.Posted by
