Guidance on the use of adrenaline auto-injectors in schools

4 October 2017 in Featured Articles

There has been a change in the legislation where schools may now administer their “spare” adrenaline auto-injector (AAI), obtained, without prescription, for use in emergencies, if available, but only to a pupil at risk of anaphylaxis, where both medical authorisation and written parental consent for the use of the spare AAI has been provided.

AAIs can be used through clothes and should be injected into the upper outer thigh in line with the instructions provided by the manufacturer.
