What to do if you suspect Anaphylactic Shock

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock by the exhibition of one or more symptoms -  seek medical attention immediately.

If an EpiPen is available administer it immediately, even if the shock is just suspected.  See Safety Tips for Children with Severe Allergies.

Administration of an antihistamine may also slow the reaction and symptoms if an EpiPen is not available but are not a substitution. Immediately medical attention should be sought.

The patient should lie down with feet elevated. If a bee sting is the cause of the reaction, remove the stinger as quickly as possible using a sharp edge or finger nail.

An attempt should be made to identify the cause of  the allergic reaction to assist in avoiding continued and future contact. See Prevention of Anaphylactic Shock and Travel Tips  - Children with Severe Allergies.

Even if symptoms subside after the administration of an EpiPen, medical treatment should still be sought in case symptoms reoccur.

See Links to Sites about Severe Allergies for more information.

Prevention of Anaphylactic Shock

Also see Travel Tips - Children with Severe Allergies.

The best prevention of an Anayphylactic Shock is to avoid the trigger foods and substances completely and to be prepared for any accidental contact by being aware of the symptoms and what to do if an allergic reaction is suspected. While it may be quite difficult to avoid the allergen causes, parents of a child with severe allergies and the child/patient themselves must be aware of the causes and take responsibility to avoid them.

Wear a Medic Alert bracelet.  See Links to Sites about Severe Allergies.

Education is a key element in avoiding or reducing the risk of Anaphylactic Shock. Labels on processed foods must be carefully reviewed before any product is consumed or handled. Many common food causes have various terms to describe them as ingredients.  See Links to Sites about Severe Allergies.

Foods can also be cross-contaminated during storage and transport. Items purchased in bulk or loose bins should be strictly avoided.

Children/patients must be instructed to never eat food given to them by other children or adults other than their parents. Never Share drinks with others.

Parents and children/patients should be repeatedly reminded to avoid contact with the allergy causes and the importance of prompt treatment if symptoms appear and the risk of Anaphylactic Shock is suspected, before respiratory problems occur.
