pSorry if I should have posted this elsewhere... /p
pIf 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)./p

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!
