Anaphylaxis affects up to five percent of the U.S. population, according to a 2017 study in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology in Practice. Fast administration of epinephrine can prevent a severe reaction from progressing to a fatal event, as emergency medical personnel are all too aware.
Snap Medical Industries (Dublin, Ohio) has announced the release of EpinephrineSnap-EMS, an epinephrine delivery system specifically designed to meet the protocols of the EMS provider. Each kit contains both epinephrine medication and the company’s proprietary epinephrine syringes for ease in dosing.
EpinephrineSnap-EMS kits are designed for use in people weighing 33 pounds and above. The FDA-registered kits cost less than $100. Assembly and preparation for administration take just seconds. The company also manufactures training and demonstration kits for providers to review and practice with the system.
