Interesting.  I would think it's more obvious because when you pull of the cap on the new device that you can see the actual needle and know where it's supposed to go.  Now as to whether that causes more fear for the person administering it or the person needing the epinephrine, that's a different study.

I'd like to see how Auvi-Q compares as well.

Huh?  I've never seen this product before and I'm all about smaller these days since I have a teen now (What the everloving hell?!!?).  I looked briefly, but couldn't determine if this product is as shelf stable as epi.  Does anyone know - are these good for the same yearish?
