Emergency treatment and prevention of insect-sting anaphylaxis
Insect Bites and Stings
Concordance with national guidelines for the treatment of anaphylaxis remains poor among insect-sting allergy patients. The development of a simple, clinical definition of anaphylaxis is urgently needed to facilitate identification of cases. Such a definition would help tremendously with dissemination of emergency management guidelines and the creation of systems for their implementation. All of these steps are essential for the improved treatment and prevention of insect-sting anaphylaxis in the ED.
