KEEP IN MIND

Good Health Choices - - Be Informed -

Steer­ing clear of all known trig­gers and al­ways car­ry­ing an adren­a­line auto-in­jec­tor or EpiPen is the sin­gle most ef­fec­tive way to avoid anaphylaxis. Adren­a­line works by nar­row­ing the blood ves­sels to coun­ter­act the ef­fects of low blood pres­sure and by open­ing up the air­ways to help ease breath­ing dif­fi­cul­ties. In an emer­gency, al­ways call triple-one (111).
