The World Allergy Organization has released its Guidelines for the Assessment and Management of Anaphylaxis. The 24-page report can be viewed on the World Allergy Organization's website or the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology's website. What's even more helpful are the teaching slides, which can be seen in a slide show (click on "Figure 1 Image Tools", then "Open in slideshow"). I encourage all patients with anaphylaxis and their care givers to read the slides.
