Emergency Planning for Children with Asthma and Anaphylaxis (AAN)
Price: FREE for members and non-members
Session recorded on November 29, 2023
Speaker: Alice Hoyt, MD
Between 1.6% and 5.1% of people in the US have experienced at least one episode of anaphylaxis. The most common triggers are certain foods, certain medications, and insect stings. Many people with food allergies also have asthma. Since respiratory symptoms are common in both conditions, it can be challenging to know whether someone is experiencing a severe allergic reaction or an asthma flare because they have similar symptoms. Asthma, food allergy and a high risk of anaphylaxis can occur together, and asthma can increase the risk of fatal anaphylaxis. In this webinar, Dr. Alice Hoyt will discuss how to plan for emergencies with both asthma and anaphylaxis.
Viewers can earn credit by completing the post-test questions.
