Anaphylaxis is a potentially life threatening, severe allergic reaction that requires immediate treatment with adrenaline (epinephrine).
Anaphylaxis should always be treated as a medical emergency. Phone ambulance (000-AU or 111- NZ), immediately after giving adrenaline.
ASCIA Action Plans do not expire, and therefore the plan is still valid beyond the review date, which is a guide for patients to see their doctor. Current ASCIA Action Plans are the 2021 versions, however, the 2020 and 2018 versions are still valid for use in 2022.
