Can we think up a rhyme or saying for when to use epi pen?
I will be going on vacation for a week but I thought I would post this idea before leaving lest I forget...
What do you think about all of us putting our heads together and coming up with some sort of rhyme, saying, poem for when or how to use the epi-pen. I remember several rhymes about identifying poison oak or poisonous snakes and such when I was growing up. I just thought that if we could come up with something short and catchy that it could be memorized by our children, or used to teach others about using the epi pen for reactions.
Well, I thought a rhyme might be easiest. Something that was instructional and had "hold the pen and count to ten" or "push the pen and count to ten" in it type of thing??? Maybe add something about the outer thigh area where the epi is supposed to be given?
