ACAAI Annual Meeting abstracts: Improved outcomes for adults with allergies and asthma
Date:11/4/2011

r if patients need interventions to ensure guidelines are followed. Either way, we need to improve anaphylaxis care to prevent future life-threatening reactions."

Title: A Retrospective Database Study of Concordance with Recommended Post-Discharge Anaphylaxis Care among US Adults Seen in the Emergency Department or Hospital with Food-Induced Anaphylaxis

By the numbers: About 6 percent of young children and 3 to 4 percent of adults have food allergies in the United States. Every year between 150 and 200 people die as a result of food allergies.

Stung by Poor Management of Insect-Sting Reactions

In a community hospital emergency department, adherence to the national guidelines for treating insect-sting anaphylaxis, a life-threatening event, is low, according to a study presented at the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Annual Meeting in Boston, Nov. 3-8.

Researchers reviewed the records of 45 patients with insect-induced anaphylaxis and found only 35 percent received epinephrine either administered by emergency medical services before arrival or while in the emergency department. In addition, just 33 percent of patients received a prescription for self-injectable epinephrine at the time of discharge and none were referred to an allergist.

"Physicians and healthcare professionals know the emergency department (ED) is the most common medical setting for diagnosing and treating anaphylaxis. However, we need to realize that advances in anaphylaxis management will only be achieved if ED staff follows the established guidelines for diagnosis and management of anaphylaxis," says allergist M. Razi Rafeeq, MD, ACAAI fellow. "This study demonstrates an opportunity for allergists to communicate and join forces with ED staff to guide patients with potentially life-threatening allergies toward better allergy management."
