"Conclusions
The initial treatment strategy, followed by correct diagnosis, in the emergency room is critical for preventing fatal anaphylaxis. Despite the therapeutic benefits of adrenaline and the recommendations for its use, adrenaline injection rates to treat anaphylaxis remain low in many ERs. Emergency room physicians should have proper knowledge regarding the diagnosis and treatment of anaphylaxis."
