Link showing how to use Epi-pen-- great for training


Sorry if I should have posted this elsewhere...

If you haven't seen this, check out the annomated "slide show" video on Dey's site. It addresses the casues of anaphylaxis, symptoms, shows how to properly administer the Epi-pen, and what to do after it's given. I'd never seen this before. I think it's a great training tool for school staff, baby sitters, etc. I learned from it (like I never thought about bringing the epi-pen along to the ER, for example).

I've never seen an actual demonstration. This is wonderful, I will be showing it to everyone who might need to administer the epi-pen to Dylan.


PS I'm glad the board looks like its back to keeping PA children and adults safe, thank goodness!
