EpiPen Training

When managing life threatening food allergies, I don't think it is possible to be over-prepared in terms of knowing how to recognize a potentially life threatening allergic reaction and how to administer an EpiPen or other epinephrine injector. Here are a few helpful links which review EpiPen administration and symptoms of a serious reaction requiring an epipen. Among these links are a few videos which would be perfect for sharing with friends, family, caregivers and/or school staff. If you know of other online resources that address EpiPen administration and recognizing serious allergic reactions, please share in a comment below!
