Read more than just the headline.

There was an epi-pen at school. Staff did not give it to him.

If asthmas meds do not work, can an epi-pen help with asthma? I thought yes, but I'm not sure....but it wouldn't have hurt.

Yes. Epinephrine is given for severe asthma attacks. I used to get it at least once a year growing up when I had to go to the ER for an out of control attack.

^^ DS's allergist gave us instructions that if we were ever in a remote area when DS had a severe asthma or croup attack to epi him on the way to the hospital.

Katherine Cassidy Schaefer, 18, died after a severe asthma attack on Dec. 30

lifelong allergy to milk products

Quote
She said normally if Kaycee had a reaction it would be immediate, but this time it was about 40 minutes later when she felt the tingling sensation that she knew preceded an allergic reaction. She reached for her inhaler and her friend went for some Benedryl, and he quickly called 911.

This is so heartbreaking. So many of our kids have done challenges. This is terrifying.

I honestly cannot even begin to imagine what that family is experiencing. This just took my breath away.

I was sitting at the allergist's office when I read this on my twitter feed.  Horrible!  I can not imagine!  It breaks my heart!

This is utterly heartbreaking.

How this happens: sometimes Epi is not enough.

And a toddler is not old enough to articulate  changes is his body during a reaction. I will probably delete this sentence. And it may be best to take any discussion of how it could happen to OT, as we have done in the past.
