What is EpiPen® Auto-Injector and what is it used for?
EpiPen® and EpiPen® Jr Auto-Injectors contain adrenaline (also called epinephrine), and are used for the emergency treatment of anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction).1,2
EpiPen® Auto-Injector is quick and easy to use in an emergency, designed so that it can be administered by a non-medical person such as a parent, friend, teacher, childcare worker or by the patient themselves.3-6
Anaphylaxis can occur after exposure to an allergen such as:7
- Foods (such as nuts, eggs, dairy products, seafood)
- Insect bites or stings
EpiPen® Auto-Injector work?
When an anaphylactic reaction occurs, our immune system rapidly releases chemicals that can cause a sudden drop in blood pressure and a narrowing of airways (e.g. throat, windpipe, lungs), making breathing very difficult.8
The adrenaline in EpiPen® Auto-Injector helps reverse the effects of anaphylaxis by reducing throat swelling, relaxing and opening the airways, while restoring heart function and blood pressure.9
