An estimated one in 13 children in the U.S. lives with a food allergy that puts them at risk for anaphylaxis— a considerable increase from previous years. Though avoidance of allergic triggers is the only way to prevent anaphylaxis, the fact is that life happens and it’s possible for someone to experience an accidental exposure or first-time reaction.
Epinephrine is the only first-line treatment for anaphylaxis. According to the food allergy guidelines developed by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, if experiencing anaphylaxis, a person should use an epinephrine auto-injector and seek immediate emergency medical care. Carrying an epinephrine auto-injector does not prevent patients from having an anaphylactic reaction; hence, patients must avoid their triggers at all times.

Anaphylaxis can develop and progress quickly, and children and adolescents are among the most at risk.

A survey of more than 6,000 schools participating in EpiPen4Schools® revealed a total of 919 anaphylatic events among students and staff during the 2013-2014 school year. Also, the survey found:

  • More than one in five anaphylactic events occurred in the absence of an established or known allergic trigger
  • In 25% of reported anaphylaxis cases, the individual was not treated with epinephrine, the only first-line treatment for anaphylaxis
  • In those events where epinephrine auto-injector was used, nearly half (48.7%) were treated with an EpiPen® Auto-Injector provided by the EpiPen4Schools® program
