This week, we talk about allergy and anaphylaxis.
"The key to treating patients with anaphylaxis is to have a low threshold to treat. The most important point out of this whole podcast is that epinephrine, given IM at anaphylaxis doses, is essentially without serious sequelae. If you think of anaphylaxis, you should probably give it!"
