Auvi-Q™ the first Voice-Guided Epinephrine Auto-Injector For Patients With Life-Threatening Allergies just received FDA Approval. This design talks patients and caregivers through the process of injection. Once the device is pulled out from its case, a voice tells of the first step.Tiny sensors detect that each step has been taken and a voice prompt is played on what to do next. Above you can watch a short video, demonstrating the device.
Auvi-Q is the first-and-only compact epinephrine auto-injector with audio and visual guidance to patients and caregivers. The device will be aimed at patients who are at risk for anaphylaxis.
While recently updated guidelines emphasize the importance of the life-saving role of epinephrine, surveys showed that two-thirds of patients and caregivers do not carry their epinephrine auto-injectors as recommended and nearly half worry that others will not know how to use their device during an emergency.
Auvi-Q contains epinephrine, a well-established, first-line treatment for severe, life-threatening allergic reactions that may occur as a result of exposure to allergens including nuts, shellfish, dairy, eggs, insect bites, latex and medication, among other allergens.

Sweep, dust, and vacuum frequently.Weekly bathing of the pet in warm water has also been shown to lower the allergenic potential of cats and dogs, including those that never venture outside.Frequent brushing may also help to make an animal less allergenic.
Be sure to keep any pet strictly out of your allergic child’s bedroom and play areas.
Mattress covers, air cleaners, and carpet removal are also useful.
A household pet may be unjustly blamed for causing allergy symptoms.
Occasionally, symptoms that seem to be caused by an animal are instead caused by other allergies. What happens is that pets run around in the wild, then come back into the house with a load of pollens on their coats. Every time the hay fever sufferer pats the pets, an invisible cloud of allergens is stirred up, triggering symptoms.
If you suspect your child is suffering froma animal allergy have him tested by your
doctor. Only a doctor can determine the true cause of the allergy.
If you just love pets. Or want to see your kid grow up loving animals. There are
options. Reptiles, fish, and amphibians are not generally causes of allergy. However
just like their furry counterparts they are hard to take care of. Fish can be easy but
the other’s have very specific dietary and environmental needs. Make you sure you can
Some User REviews:
This is a well structured reporting on the authors’ decade long journey, to solve intense allergy issues without “drugging” themselves. Most of us have experienced the unpleasant side effects of common over the counter cold and allergy medicines. This smart and well written ebook considers standard therapies, but more importantly explores a number of alternatives this reader did not know anything about.
Read this and I predict 2 things will happen – you will be challenged to consider methods and therapies never seen before (for most of us), and you are likely going to discover the freedom that comes from improving your irritating allergies. You are going to be surprised. And you will understand your allergies and I would bet, feel so much better!
If you have never ever wondered about allegies before, read or heard about them anywhere, then this might be the book for you. However, if you haven’t stayed on a deserted island for the last 30 years then you probably have come across most of what’s in this book. And if not, just type the word allergy into any search engine and you will get similar information and depth (or better). Sadly, this book was a big disappointment.
This book is packed with useful information and very helpful suggestions. It has great descriptions of both traditional and alternative treatments for allergies and left me feeling so hopeful that one or more of these treatments will work. It includes lots of fun facts and statistics about allergies and many links to additional information that I look forward to reading.
Migraine is a chronic condition that can be triggered by some foods in some people. It is unlikely to be the
underlying cause of the condition. Because this is not technically an allergic reaction but a food sensitivity
or intolerance. It is very difficult to identify. The effects of the trigger may also be delayed by several hours.
If you think you could be affected by this condition you should see your doctor. You can also keep a food diary.
Register everything you eat and when you have a migraïne attack.
common triggers of migraine:
But there are many others that can cause Migraine to trigger. The Best thing to do is visit your doctor and keep a
detailed food diary.
Researchers have just discovered a new fact about the genetics of Allergy. A child is more likely to have a allergy if his or her same-sex parent has it. For example a boy with a father who’s allergic to cats has a higher chance to have the allergy. The same appears to be true of eczema and asthma.
This has been concluded by Professor Hasan Arshad, a consultant in allergy and immunology at Southampton General Hospital and his colleagues. The study is published in the August issue of The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
The professor used data from the Isle of Wight Birth cohort Study which collected information on over a 1000 children that were followed up to the age of 18. They were examined 5 times during this period.
When they analyzed the results the researchers found that maternal asthma was tied to asthma in girls but not to boys, and paternal asthma was linked to asthma in boys but not to girls.
They found the same pattern for eczema: if a child’s mother had eczema, then the chances of the child having it was higher if it was a girl but not a boy, and if the father had it, the chance was higher for his son but not his daughter.
