Anaphylaxis is a clinical emergency, and all healthcare professionals should be familiar with its recognition and acute and ongoing management. These guidelines have been prepared by the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Taskforce on Anaphylaxis. They aim to provide evidence‐based recommendations for the recognition, risk factor assessment, and the management of patients who are at risk of, are experiencing, or have experienced anaphylaxis. While the primary audience… 

EAACI guidelines: Anaphylaxis (2021 update)

The European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology Anaphylaxis multidisciplinary Task Force has updated the 2014 guideline, and there is an urgent need to prioritize clinical trials with the potential to improve the management of patients at risk of anaphyl axis.

Drug‐induced anaphylaxis in the emergency room

To avoid future recurrence of anaphylaxis, providing adrenaline auto‐injectors and making an etiological diagnosis, including confirmation of the offending trigger, are recommended for patients at risk of anAPHylaxis before their discharge from the emergency room.

A Clinical Practice Guideline for the Emergency Management of Anaphylaxis (2020)

This guideline made twenty-five recommendations that covered the diagnosis, preparation, emergency treatment, and post-emergency management of anaphylaxis, and recommended the use of a set of adapted diagnostic criteria and the four-tier grading system from the American National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID/FAAN).

Anaphylaxis: epidemiology, aetiology and relevance for the clinic

This review summarises the findings from recent studies on the epidemiology and aetiology of anaphylaxis and draws on the insights from this work and recent international guidelines to consider the implications for clinical care.

Adrenaline in anaphylaxis: overtreatment in theory, undertreatment in reality

It is found that junior doctors today seem to be no better at correctly identifying the clinical need for, and correct dose and route for administration of, adrenaline (epinephrine) than their predecessors a decade earlier.

International consensus on (ICON) anaphylaxis

These guidelines concur about prompt initial treatment with intramuscular injection of epinephrine (adrenaline) in the mid-outer thigh, positioning the patient supine, calling for help, and when indicated, providing supplemental oxygen, intravenous fluid resuscitation and cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

EAACI Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Guidelines: diagnosis and management of food allergy

The current understanding of the manifestations of food allergy, the role of diagnostic tests, and the effective management of patients of all ages with food allergy is presented.

Managing Anaphylaxis in the Office Setting

To prevent near-fatal and fatal reactions from anaphylaxis, the patient, the family, and the physician must remember to follow the necessary steps when treating anaphYLaxis.

Epinephrine for First-aid Management of Anaphylaxis

This clinical report from the American Academy of Pediatrics is an update of the 2007 clinical report on this topic and provides information to help clinicians identify patients at risk of anaphylaxis and new information aboutEpinephrine and epinephrine autoinjectors (EAs).
