Some of the symptoms of anaphylaxis may disable the patient, causing them to be incapable of injecting the epinephrine to himself or calling for help.
In this situation, just the act of opening the case will activate the automated anaphylaxis emergency protocol. One of the main concerns of allergic patients is the need to act quickly and to know how to properly inject the epinephrine under the stress of such a life-threatening situation. The emergency protocol has been developed in order to ensure the safety of the patient and to provide them the relief of knowing that anAPPhylaxis is going to take care of them. Our application will notify the contacts and emergency services, as well as provide the location of the individual. In addition, a video tutorial will be automatically projected on the mobile phone screen with administration instructions. These instructions will not only help the patient, but also any person that would be injecting the epinephrine.
There were two girls; one was 17 years old and the other 13. One beautiful day they decided to have a picnic by themselves in the park, so they packed their lunches and headed out. Once they started eating, the youngest girl started breaking out in hives, having a shortness of breath, and having discomfort and nausea. The girls didn’t realise there were peanuts in the cookies they packed. The 13-year-old girl fainted; meanwhile the 17-year-old girl had no idea what to do in this situation. Thankfully, she knew her friend had AnAPPhylaxis, so she found her case and opened it up. Opening the case immediately notified emergency medical services and gave instructions on how to administer the EpiPen drug. Thankfully, the 13-year-old girl was able to get the assistance she needed through AnAPPhylaxis.
