Abstract

Anaphylaxis is an emergent, life-threatening condition and quick provider response is imperative. When a patient has this acute and severe Immunoglobulin E hypersensitivity immune response, the health care provider must be ready to immediately act using an expert level of awareness. This project serves as an overview of this important topic and should cultivate a spirit of inquiry into institutional policies for management, as well as to inspire further research.
