Allergy Tip of the Day: Stock Epi Expanding Beyond Schools
Stock epinephrine is not just for schools anymore – and that’s good news for people who experience the sudden, often unexpected and life-threatening allergic reaction called anaphylaxis.
Twenty-seven states have passed what are called “entity laws,” legislation that permits venues such as restaurants, daycare centers, sports arenas, shopping malls, swimming pools, hotels, camps and theme parks to maintain emergency supplies of epinephrine auto-injectors.
The availability of epinephrine auto-injectors in public places can reduce the time it takes to get lifesaving medication to a person having a sudden anaphylactic reaction.
