BACKGROUND Existing grading systems for acute systemic hypersensitivity reactions vary considerably, have a number of deficiencies, and lack a consistent definition of anaphylaxis. [...] Key MethodMETHODS Case records from 1149 systemic hypersensitivity reactions presenting to an emergency department were analyzed retrospectively. Logistic regression analyses of the associations between individual reaction features and hypotension and hypoxia were used to construct a grading system.Expand
Perioperative anaphylaxis grading system: 'making the grade'.
TLDR
It is proposed that perioperative anaphylaxis is sufficiently different from other forms of acute hypersensitivity to be deserving of its own classification system and that an approach of ‘one size fits all’ does not serve the best interests of management of anphylactic crises in the operating room. Expand
Anaphylaxis: clinical patterns, mediator release, and severity.
TLDR
The results suggest that multiple inflammatory pathways drive reaction severity and support recommendations for safe observation periods after initial treatment. Expand
Assessing severity of anaphylaxis: a data-driven comparison of 23 instruments
TLDR
The distributions of severity differed between the 23 instruments in both food and drug allergy, and thus rendering translation especially between scoring systems with 3 and 5 grades difficult. Expand
Anaphylaxis: Clinical concepts and research priorities
TLDR
The clinical spectrum of anaphylaxis including major disease subgroups requires clarification, and validated scoring systems and outcome measures are needed to enable good‐quality prospective observational studies and randomized controlled trials. Expand
Different clinical features of anaphylaxis according to cause and risk factors for severe reactions.
TLDR
The clinical features of anaphylaxis developed with drug treatment and in males, and male patients with drug induced anAPHylaxis should be paid more attention. Expand
Predictors of biphasic reactions in the emergency department for patients with anaphylaxis.
TLDR
Patients with a history of prior anaphylaxis, an unknown precipitant, or who present with symptoms of diarrhea or wheezing may be at increased risk for a biphasic reaction. Expand
Clinical Practice Guidelines for Diagnosis and Management of Hypersensitivity Reactions to Contrast Media.
TLDR
Skin and in vitro tests should be performed for diagnosis of both immediate and nonimmediate reactions, and the ICM to be administered will be chosen depending on the results of these tests, theICM that induced the reaction (when known), the severity of the reaction, the availability of alternative ICM, andThe information available on potential ICM cross-reactivity.

TLDR
The incidence of biphasic reactions was 2.2% in patients treated with corticosteroids and those with a history of drug anaphylaxis were at greater risk. Expand
Perioperative Anaphylaxis
TLDR
This review aims to discuss the main aspects of perioperative anaphylaxis: risk factors, diagnosis, treatment, culprit agents, specific investigation, and preventive measures. Expand

Emergency department anaphylaxis: A review of 142 patients in a single year.
TLDR
The emergency department anaphylaxis presentation incidence is greater than previously recognized, though death remains rare, and Definitive management in the emergency department alone is possible in most cases, provided that the appropriate use of adrenaline and the need for allergy clinic follow-up are appreciated. Expand
Multicenter study of emergency department visits for food allergies.
TLDR
The management of food-related acute allergic reactions and concordance for food allergy appears low supports a new collaboration between professional organizations in allergy and emergency medicine and the development of educational programs and materials for patients and staff. Expand
Insect sting anaphylaxis; prospective evaluation of treatment with intravenous adrenaline and volume resuscitation
TLDR
Carefully titrated intravenous adrenaline combined with volume resuscitation is an effective strategy for treating sting anaphylaxis, however severe bradycardia may benefit from additional treatment with atropine. Expand
Insect-sting challenge in 324 subjects with a previous anaphylactic reaction: current criteria for insect-venom hypersensitivity do not predict the occurrence and the severity of anaphylaxis.
TLDR
It is concluded that the current criteria to assess insect-venom hypersensitivity do not relate to the occurrence and severity of anaphylactic symptoms after an insect-sting challenge. Expand
Natural history of insect sting allergy: relationship of severity of symptoms of initial sting anaphylaxis to re-sting reactions.

TLDR
The observations suggest that patients with mild to moderate anaphylactic symptoms probably do not require venom immunotherapy and confirm the frequent self-limiting course of insect sting allergy, especially in children, and the repetitive nature of specific anaphlyactic symptoms. Expand
Fatal and near-fatal anaphylactic reactions to food in children and adolescents.
TLDR
Six children and adolescents who died of anaphylactic reactions to foods and seven others who nearly died and required intubation were identified and the failure to recognize the severity of these reactions and to administer epinephrine promptly increases the risk of a fatal outcome. Expand
Hymenoptera sting challenge of 348 patients: relation to subsequent field stings.
TLDR
In 95% of patients with a previous anaphylactic reaction, the result of the in-hospital sting challenge provided a good prediction of tolerance to a subsequent Hymenoptera field sting. Expand
INCIDENCE AND SEVERITY OF ANAPHYLACTOID REACTIONS TO COLLOID VOLUME SUBSTITUTES
TLDR
All available colloid volume substitutes carry the risk of anaphylactoid reactions, but the frequency of severe reactions was low for plasma-protein solutions, hydroxyethyl starch, 0-008% for dextran, and 0-038% for gelatin solutions. Expand
Potentiated anaphylaxis in patients with drug-induced beta-adrenergic blockade.
TLDR
It is postulated that propranolol potentiated anaphylaxis in these patients by inhibition of adenylate cyclase, resulting in lowered intracellular cyclic AMP and a lowered threshold of mediator release. Expand
Rush Hymenoptera venom immunotherapy: a safe and practical protocol for high-risk patients.
TLDR
With a rush immunotherapy regimen over a time period of 8 years in predominantly high-risk patients, the incidence of SRs was low, despite the high number of patients with bee venom allergy, who are more likely to have side effects. Expand
