Abstract

In allergology, anaphylaxis is the most common emergency situation. The anaphylactic reaction can affect the skin and mucous membranes, the respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract and cardiovascular system - with varying degrees of severity. In most cases, the anaphylactic reaction is immunologi-cally-mediated, usually by immunoglobulin E. For adults, the most common triggers of anaphylaxis are drugs, insect bites and food; for children, the most common trigger is food. In addition to general provisions (position, examination of vital function, intravenous line, administration of volumes), drug therapy plays an important role - especially the application of adrenaline. Patient education is of special importance.
