When anaphylaxis strikes a family managing food allergies, the incredible fear, trauma and grief that follow are often difficult to describe.Trish will detail 3 different personal case reports of anaphylaxis discussing first from the perspectives of a parent, an adult living with food allergies, and a nurse. Trish will convey the issues that parents confront in these moments as an allergic reaction unfolds. How do you call for an ambulance—what exactly should you say? While no medical direction will be given in this talk, Trish will lead a parent-friendly discussion of the physiological changes that take place in the human body, paired with a brief discussion of the impact of first line agents that are used to treat anaphylaxis. The talk will conclude with a final reference to each personal scenario of anaphylaxis and why the medications and steps taken contributed to successful outcomes.
