Use of Adrenaline/Epinephrine 1:1000 for the Treatment of Anaphylaxis

Anaphylaxis is an extreme and severe allergic reaction that can occur as a result of exposure to any substance which causes an allergic reaction (an allergen).  The reaction can occur within minutes of exposure, but sometimes after hours.  Anaphylactic reactions can occur as a result of vaccination or administration of any drug.

If a patient experiences an anaphylactic reaction, then treatment must be administered immediately, using an Adrenaline / Epinephrine 1 in 1000 injection (e.g. Epipen, Jext).
