EpiPen recently completely some videos on sign/symptoms of anaphylaxis as well as use of the EpiPen. They feature the wonderful Dr. Susan Waserman.

I think they're a really good resource to show relatives, teachers, anyone feeling a little unsure about giving your child an auto-injector should the need arise:

Wow! That was great. Straight froward and easy to understand.
I'm going to e-mail it to amny relatives in preparation of the holidays. I was thinking that I would do a retraining this Christmas as we don't see my family very often.
Thanks!

In the demo of the epipen, the administrator has their thumb over the end of the epipen. I have been told and read that this could interfere with the working of the epipen. I know that this is mentioned in the Sicks Kids book by Dr. Gold.

I think this deserves to be bumped up for those new members who haven't seen it yet.
