1. ASCIA Guidelines - Adrenaline (epinephrine) autoinjector prescription

ASCIA Guidelines - Adrenaline (epinephrine) autoinjector prescription ASCIA Guidelines for adrenaline autoinjector prescription - Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) | | ASCIA Guidelines for adrenaline autoinjector prescription This document has been updated to emphasise the importance of not walking patients who are experiencing anaphylaxis, to address dose issues for infants and pregnant women and to incorporate the word 'epinephrine', which is a new TGA (...) requirement. Introduction The aim of these guidelines is to outline the appropriate prescription of adrenaline (epinephrine) autoinjectors for use in non-medical settings for the emergency/first aid treatment of potentially life-threatening severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis). Adrenaline autoinjectors are used to treat severe symptoms, reduce the risk of serious morbidity (e.g. cerebrovascular damage) and prevent fatalities due to anaphylaxis. Adrenaline rapidly reverses the effects of anaphylaxis

3. The cost-effectiveness of requiring universal vs contextual self-injectable epinephrine autoinjector for allergen immunotherapy. (Abstract)

The cost-effectiveness of requiring universal vs contextual self-injectable epinephrine autoinjector for allergen immunotherapy. Aeroallergen immunotherapy (AIT) is a safe and effective disease-modifying treatment associated with rare therapy-associated fatality. Significant practice variation surrounds universal or contextual prescription of self-injectable epinephrine (SIE) for patients receiving AIT.To characterize the cost-effectiveness of a universal vs contextual SIE requirement (...) prescription could be cost-effective if it provided a 1000 times protection against AIT fatality at a value-based cost of $24, and the annual AIT fatality rates unrealistically exceed 2.6 per 10,000 patients.In a simulation of potential SIE-prescribing strategies for patients receiving AIT, a universal approach to an epinephrine autoinjector requirement was not cost-effective when compared with an approach in which an SIE is prescribed only to patients with prior SRIT.Copyright © 2019 American College

4. Bioavailability and Cardiovascular Effects of Adrenaline Administered by Anapen Autoinjector in Healthy Volunteers. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Bioavailability and Cardiovascular Effects of Adrenaline Administered by Anapen Autoinjector in Healthy Volunteers. The administration of adrenaline is a life-saving intervention for anaphylactic reactions. However, it has been questioned whether the needle length of the autoinjectors is sufficient to achieve genuine intramuscular delivery and optimal bioavailability.To assess the adequacy of Anapen, which has a relatively short needle length (10.5 mm), through a comparison of the depot (...) localization, plasma pharmacokinetics, and cardiovascular responses of adrenaline delivered via Anapen versus a prefilled syringe with a 25.4-mm needle, which is generally used for intramuscular injections.This randomized, open-label, crossover study compared the impact of adrenaline administration at 2 sites in the thigh of 18 normal weight male volunteers, using either Anapen or the prefilled syringe; in addition, we studied the treatment of 12 overweight women with Anapen. The depot depth was measured

Who needs to carry an epinephrine autoinjector? Patients who have had anaphylaxis or who are at risk of it (eg, due to food allergy or Hymenoptera hypersensitivity) should carry an epinephrine autoinjector at all times. However, the risks and benefits must be considered on an individual basis, especially in patients with atherosclerotic heart disease, elderly patients on polypharmacy, patients receiving allergen immunotherapy, those with large local reactions to insect stings, and individuals

6. Randomized comparison of caregivers' ability to use epinephrine autoinjectors and prefilled syringes for anaphylaxis. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Randomized comparison of caregivers' ability to use epinephrine autoinjectors and prefilled syringes for anaphylaxis. Caregivers often incorrectly use epinephrine autoinjectors. It is unclear whether this is due to insufficient training or a difficult-to-use tool. Furthermore, the high costs of epinephrine autoinjectors may limit their availability; so low-cost prefilled syringes may be the alternative.We performed a prospective randomized trial to compare successful epinephrine administration (...) at four stages: after reading written instructions, and immediately after, 6 weeks, and 3 months following video training. The time required for successful epinephrine administration and failed steps in the administration of epinephrine autoinjectors and prefilled syringe were also investigated.Complete data analysis of 113 participants (prefilled syringe group, n=57; EpiPen, n=56) was performed. Significantly more participants correctly demonstrated the use of prefilled syringes compared to EpiPen

11. Contemporary issues in anaphylaxis and the evolution of epinephrine autoinjectors: What will the future bring? Full Text available with Trip Pro

Contemporary issues in anaphylaxis and the evolution of epinephrine autoinjectors: What will the future bring? Food allergy and anaphylaxis appear to be increasing in the United States, especially in young children, and preparedness is paramount to successful emergency management in the community. Although the treatment of choice for anaphylaxis is epinephrine delivered by autoinjection, some devices are challenged by less user-friendly designs or pose the risk of injury, especially in young (...) patients. Human factors engineering has played a larger role in the development of more recent epinephrine autoinjector technologies and will continue to play a role in the evolution and future design of epinephrine autoinjectors.To discuss contemporary issues related to the identification and management of anaphylaxis, current and future epinephrine autoinjector design, and unmet needs for the treatment of special populations, namely, young children weighing less than 15 kg.The literature was reviewed

16. JOURNAL CLUB: Benefit of Epinephrine Autoinjector for Treatment of Contrast Reactions: Comparison of Errors, Administration Times, and Provider Preferences. (Abstract)

JOURNAL CLUB: Benefit of Epinephrine Autoinjector for Treatment of Contrast Reactions: Comparison of Errors, Administration Times, and Provider Preferences. Given the rarity of contrast reactions in practice, most radiologists have little to no experience in their management, and errors are common. The purpose of this study was to compare treatment of a moderate-severity reaction with intramuscular epinephrine by either the traditional manual method of drawing up and delivering epinephrine (...) with a needle and syringe or the use of an epinephrine autoinjector.All diagnostic radiologists at the study institution were requested to participate in an annual contrast reaction simulation program, which consisted of three simulation scenarios in a high-fidelity simulation laboratory. During the moderate-severity simulation scenario, the time to administer intramuscular epinephrine and any errors in administration were recorded. Groups were randomized to use an autoinjector device or manual delivery
