Treatments for Anaphylaxis

Treatments for Anaphylaxis:

The most effective treatment plan for anaphylaxis uses a multifaceted approach. Treatment plans are also individualized to best address the specific cause and severity of anaphylaxis, and the patient's age and medical history. In general, the allergies that can lead to anaphylaxis are treatable, although they are generally not curable.

Treatment of anaphylaxis begins with prevention. This includes diagnosing the specific allergen or allergens and avoiding exposure to them. For example, for a person who has been diagnosed with an allergy to wasp stings, should avoid areas where wasps are common.

Anaphylaxis is treated with an injectable form of the drug epinephrine. Epinephrine helps to reverse an anaphylactic reaction by opening the airways and easing breathing. People with severe allergies or a history of anaphylaxis need to carry a self-injecting device that contains epinephrine with them at all times. Immediate continuing care and medical monitoring in an emergency setting is necessary after any use of injectable epinephrine. This is because after the epinephrine wears off, the anaphylaxis can return.

Emergency treatment may also include other drugs, such as antihistamines and steroids given intravenously. These drugs reduce inflammation and swelling, help ease breathing, and help to prevent the return of symptoms. Albuterol, which also helps breathing, may be given via a device in which the medication is dissolved in a fine mist that patient inhales into the airway and lungs. Supplemental oxygen is also given.

In severe cases, a person with anaphylaxis may need treatment with CPR and advanced life-support measures.
