Anaphylaxis identification, management and prevention 38 Reprinted from AustRAliAn F Amily PhysiciAn Vol. 42, no. 1/2, jAnuARy/FebRuARy 2013 Background Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that can cause death. In a similar trend to allergic conditions more broadly, anaphylaxis presentations are increasing in Australia. Objective This article summarises current knowledge regarding the identification, management and prevention of anaphylaxis, highlighting risk minimisation strategies (...) relevant to general practitioners. Discussion The most common causes of anaphylaxis are medication, food and insect venom. Medications are the most common cause of anaphylaxis in older adults, particularly antibiotics, anaesthetic drugs, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and opiates. Food allergy is the most common cause of anaphylaxis in children, but rarely results in death. Anaphylaxis is a medical emergency requiring immediate treatment with adrenaline, as well as ongoing management. Important

Clinical Bottom Line It appears that patients who have a severe type 1 hypersensitivity reaction to penicillin do not have an increased risk of anaphylaxis to cephalosporins.

in anaphylaxis, such trials are unlikely to be performed in individuals with anaphylaxis. Indeed, they might be unethical because prompt treatment with adrenaline is deemed to be critically important for survival in anaphylaxis. Also, such studies would be difficult to conduct because anaphylactic episodes usually occur without warning, often in a non-medical setting, and differ in severity both among individuals and from one episode to another in the same individual. Consequently, obtaining baseline (...) Adrenaline (epinephrine) for the treatment of anaphylaxis with and without shock.

Platelet-activating factor, PAF acetylhydrolase, and severe anaphylaxis. Platelet-activating factor (PAF) is an important mediator of anaphylaxis in animals, and interventions that block PAF prevent fatal anaphylaxis. The roles of PAF and PAF acetylhydrolase, the enzyme that inactivates PAF, in anaphylaxis in humans have not been reported.We measured serum PAF levels and PAF acetylhydrolase activity in 41 patients with anaphylaxis and in 23 control patients.
