abstract

  • In this large cohort with an ED visit or hospitalization for anaphylaxis, 22% had severe anaphylaxis. Pre-index preventive anaphylaxis care (ie, EAI prescription fill and allergist/immunologist visit) was associated with a significantly lower risk, supporting the benefits of preventive anaphylaxis care in real-world practice.
