Webinar: Epinephrine first and the role of Benadryl® in anaphylaxis

Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that has the potential to be life-threatening, but there is emergency treatment. Join us to learn why epinephrine is the first-line treatment for anaphylaxis, and what role, if any, antihistamines have during a reaction. Plus, build your confidence in learning how to recognize anaphylaxis and what to do in case you or someone you know experiences it.
Here are the details:
What the webinar is about: The importance of using epinephrine for treatment of anaphylaxis and when antihistamines might be given, along with a review of the signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis and the possibility of biphasic or secondary reactions.

Plus, you can submit your questions in advance upon registration.
