Epinephrine Auto-Injectors: The Hows, Whys, and Whens!


Act 99 of 2020, which amended the PA Optometric Practice Act, allows for Doctors of Optometry to utilize Epinephrine auto-injectors for anaphylaxis. Now that you can, this course will provide you with the hows, whys and whens. 

This program will describe the complex physiologic process associated with acute hypersensitivity reactions (Type-1) that result in anaphylaxis in patients. The mechanisms of epinephrine will also be discussed, as well as injection techniques. Lastly, case scenarios will be described and evaluated for appropriate and inappropriate uses of epinephrine. Participants will have a defined plan of action upon completion of this important topic.
