Differential diagnosis: severe asthma attack heart attack panic attack food poisoning - Those differential diagnosis are very similar to anaphylaxis shock and a doctor could get a wrong diagnosis due to lack of tools in reach to doctor hand. - An increased amount of tryptase protein can be measured in a blood sample collected during the first three hours after anaphylaxis symptoms have begun. - Tryptase levels are seldom elevated in food-induced anaphylaxis
  • 18. Place patient in horizontal with legs up position. Establish and maintain airway. Give oxygen via nasal airway as needed. Place a tourniquet above the reaction site. Epinephrine at the site of antigen injection. Start IV to rise BP.

  • 20. Avoid the responsible allergen (e.g. food, drug, latex, etc.). Keep an adrenaline kit (e.g. Epipen) and Benadryl on hand at all times. Wear medic Alert bracelets . Venom immunotherapy is highly effective in protecting insect-allergic individuals.
