abstract

  • Although two-thirds of patients filled a prescription for an epinephrine autoinjector after an ED visit or hospitalization for SIA, only 14% of patients received follow-up care by an allergist/immunologist. This missed opportunity to provide venom immunotherapy, an essentially curative therapy, unnecessarily places patients at risk for recurrent anaphylaxis.
