New Evidence Repository topic: anaphylaxis

Canadian epidemiological data indicate that the rate of children who visited emergency departments between 2006-2014 for anaphylaxis more than doubled. Although fatalities are rare, anaphylaxis must always be considered a medical emergency requiring immediate treatment.

Anaphylaxis is the newest topic in our Evidence Repository – check out the evidence here.
