Did You Know?

Applying Gauze

Gauze is used to control bleeding and cover injuries.

Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening allergic reaction that causes trouble breathing due to spasms of the respiratory airways and shock due to a sudden drop in blood pressure. This can occur in response to an allergen for people with allergies. Delayed reactions may also occur.

What to do?

  • Call your local emergency number
  • If the victim has an autoinjector (an epinephrine pen), ask if you can help administer it (usually in the thigh)
  • Tell the victim to lie still on his or her back
  • Loosen tight clothing and cover the victim with a blanket or additional clothing
  • If the victim vomits or bleeds from the mouth, turn him or her to the side
  • If victim stops breathing and or is unresponsive, start CPR immediately
