Emergency Kit

Emergency Kit

Basics

You must carry your emergency kit at all times, together with your allergy passport, because anaphylactic reactions occur in only a few minutes.

The emergency kit includes an auto-injector of adrenalin, a bronchodilatator, cordicoïds and anti-histaminics.

Never suck on or incise a bee or wasp sting wound. Eventually, you can remove the stinger carefully, if you can see it.

ANAPHYLACTIC SHOCK

Reactions such as feeling faint, weak, experiencing breathing difficulty, urticaria, angioedema, all of which occur after an insect sting or after being given food or medication to which one is allergic, are anaphylactic shocks.

  1. First, use the adrenalin autoinjector
  2. Then, the bronchodilatator (in case of breathing difficulties / wheezing / constriction)
  3. Last, take corticoïd and antihistaminic pills

HOW DO YOU USE THE EMERGENCY KIT ?

    • sit down, tell people around you what is happening to you
    • get your adrenalin autoinjector ready
    • if fainting is imminent: inject directly in thigh (even though pants). Injection is subcutaneous or intramuscular
    • then use bronchodilatator, take a tablet of corticoïd and or antihistaminic
    • go to an emergency center immediately to be on the safe side or call for an on-call doctor
