anaphylaxis living with the risk

Action plan - Essentials

 Since the severity of reactions is often unpredictable, it’s essential you have an individualised Action Plan for Anaphylaxis, developed with and signed by your doctor.

Learn quickly how to recognise early warning signs and always have your emergency medical kit (containing your Action Plan, adrenaline autoinjector and other medications recommended by your doctor) with you. Don’t forget that your family, friends, teachers, childcare staff and work colleagues all need to know where your emergency medical kit is and how to use your adrenaline autoinjector in case of an emergency.

Be aware of your own reality - you can’t afford to keep this information to yourself.

Download an Action Plan for Anaphylaxis from the ASCIA website.
