Anaphylaxis is a potentially life threatening severe allergic reaction, that requires immediate treatment with adrenaline (epinephrine), which can save lives. Anaphylaxis should always be treated as a medical emergency. Call an ambulance (000 in Australia or 111 in New Zealand), immediately after giving an adrenaline autoinjector.

Current ASCIA Action Plans are the 2020 versions, however, the 2018 versions are still valid for use throughout 2020, or until the review date on the plan. ASCIA Action Plans do not expire, and therefore the plan is still valid beyond the date of review, which is a guide for patients to see their doctor.
