Using an Epipen for Patient Care Assistants training course

Anaphylaxis, also called anaphylactic shock, is a serious allergic reaction that can onset rapidly and may cause death if not immediately treated. People prone to anaphylaxis are typically prescribed an epinephrine autoinjector, like the EpiPen; an immediate injection can be the difference between life and death. Patient care assistants are likely to deal with patients with severe allergies and should know how to administer an EpiPen. This course discusses anaphylactic shock, how to manage and treat anaphylaxis, and when and how to administer an EpiPen.
