Regardless of your specialty, we as medical providers are underutilizing epinephrine. Culturally most of us feel that we should only reach for this medication when there is shock or impending closure of the airway. However the reality is, epinephrine is relatively safe, life saving and much faster acting than the cocktail of other medications we administer to someone in anaphylaxis. Don’t wait to use the epinephrine...you are only asking for trouble!
