For this weeks photo I am being rather uncharacteristically serious. It is actually sometimes a matter of life and death.
This week I am also combining the fun photo share with my Friday post. Thanks to Mum vs the Boys Friday Photo Share and Maple Leaf Mommy
"E" is for Epipen
|This pre filled syringe just needs the blue safety cap removed before it can be quickly used in case of an emergency.|
Epinephrine is used with emergency medical treatment to treat allergic reactions to insect bites, food, latex, medications and other causes.Also known as adrenalin, this medication relaxes the muscles in the airway and tightens blood vessels.
This pre-filled syringe should be used as soon as you suspect that you are having a serious medical reaction. It can.... and should be used right through your clothes ( pants, jeans etc) and followed up immediately with emergency medical treatment.
If you have children with allergies.... or if you do... these delightful kids will show YOU how to use and epipen.
