Did You Know?
Severe allergic reactions: first aid
- As a rescuer, ask the victim if they have any medication such as an epinephrine pen you or they can use to manage the reaction.
- For automatic injectors (usually for epinephrine pens), press it against the thigh or a similar well-muscled area and press the button. Hold it for several seconds.
- Massage the site of injection for around ten seconds. This will enhance the absorption of the medication.
- Loosen any tight clothing.
- Cover victim with a blanket and help to a comfortable position.
- If the victim is unconscious, turn him or her to the side to prevent aspiration if he or she vomits or bleeds from the mouth.
- Perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) as necessary.
