Question: In the event of a VSA where Anaphylaxis is the suspected cause, when would be the most ideal time to administer Epinephrine IM? I'm assuming we would start with CPR, attach PADS, Analyze, then Epi. Would this be a safe assumption?


 Thanks for the question. We agree entirely. Begin CPR, attach pads, analyze while you have your partner attend to the airway with BVM, then consider epinephrine as per the medical directive.
