Anaphylactic Shock After Effects
Anaphylactic shock after effects. I can not catch my breath still after I had as. It has been a month. Is that normal?
Anaphylaxis is a severe, whole-body allergic reaction to a chemical that has become an allergen. After being exposed to a substance such as bee sting venom, the person's immune system becomes sensitized to it. When the person is exposed to that allergen again, an allergic reaction may occur. Anaphylaxis happens quickly after the exposure, is severe, and ...Read more
1-2 days: Developing anaphylactic reactions involves many organs, depending how severe the reaction was. If it was treated as out patient and did not need intubation, usually a few hours to a day the person feels tired. If the person was ill enough to be intubated and admitted to the hospital, the time to resuscitation is key for brain preservation. So it is variable. ...Read more
Itch-> death: Mild cases may be itching, hives, vomiting, and fatigue, severe cases can be life-threatening when respiratory problem or vascular collapse (shock) occurs. If you have this issue, be sure to have Epinephrine with you all at time. Oral antihistamine will not do you any good. Even more important, see an allergist to find out what the trigger is. ...Read more
I'm going to get my 1st dose of Xolair. Any common side effects right after the shot? Nurse is not helpful. I am aware of anaphylactic shock.
Its: Not a real issue I've not had any patients have any major reactions good luck and hope you feel well soon ...Read more
Some tips: When you have trouble breathing due to obstruction in the tongue or throat swelling or airway obstruction (asthma), when you are fainting due to low blood pressure, or when you are having abdominal cramps, vomiting, and/or diarrhea, for no known reason, then anaphylaxis is a possibility. Over 90% of anaphylaxis is associated with itching, flushing, and/or hives and this is important to remember ...Read more
Most probably not: Some delayed reactions do occur but they are usually skin reactions/ joint effusions (serum sickness). Anaphylaxis should occur probably within half hour at the most. ...Read more
Waste 100 bucks: An amazingly safe medication. In the seventies we used Epinephrine to treat acute asthma attacks giving kids 3 doses in 40 minutes. Sometimes they had nausea & vomiting. Sometimes they'd get a little hyper. The nausea & vomiting could also have been due to asthma itself. Anyway, expect slight but brief rise in pulse, mild muscle jitteriness, heightened alertness. All resolve in 30 minutes. ...Read more
There can be: Different severities of an anaphylactic reaction.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes...: This can happen if the airway is quickly and severely compromised. This is why it is important to have an epi pen available for anyone who has had this reaction. See your doctor so this can be prescribed. It can be life-saving! ...Read more
Hard to know: The best way to prove anaphylaxis is to demonstrate elevated tryptase levels (blood test) at the time of the reaction. Often, this test is not done as symptoms and timing with suspected trigger is enough to diagnose and treat. If one suspects they have had an anaphylactic reaction (now resolved), then they should urgently discuss with a physician to see if epi prescription is needed. ...Read more
Possible reasons why some people still survive from anaphylactic shock when no epi-pen was administered?
Not true shock: Then it's a different kind of reaction. Not necessarily igE type reaction. ...Read more
Can you got into anaphylactic shock from perfume and if so how long does it take for the symptoms to show up?
Probably not: Anaphylaxis due to allergen trigger usually requires an antibody to have been made in the past and present in sufficient quantity at the time of exposure (peanut allergy for example). Antibodies to perfumes generally do not exist. An irritant reaction, however, can occur and can cause a reactive lung problem or vocal cord spasm producing somewhat similar symptoms. Go to ER if ever in doubt. ...Read more
Yes; pollen allergen: It may not be the flowers, but the pollen within them, that caused the allergy. Anaphylactic shock is a severe allergic reaction where the body reacts to a harmless substance (like pollen) by over-producing histamine & starting an exaggerated immune response. In some cases, this causes an unsafe drop in blood pressure (shock). Emergency treatment with epinephrine & steroids (immunosupressant). ...Read more
Bad stuff: Anaphylaxis causes dilatation & leaking of blood vessels. That causes swelling of membranes, particularly in the respiratory tracy. This compromises organs depending on their blood &oxygen supply. Soon blood pressure drops, then organ failure follows if anaphylaxis is left untreated. Finally death ensues. ...Read more
You'd know: Anaphylaxis is caused by exposure to an antigen which elaborates an exaggerated response from the body. This results swelling of the airway tissues, blocking them, wheezing in the lungs and generalized body swelling. If it happened to you, you'd not forget it. It can be treated with Epinephrine and steroids which reduce the swelling. ...Read more
EPIPEN (epinephrine) and 911: Anaphylactic shock is a medical emergency. If an Epipen is available inject immediately. Then call 911. The patients swells up, their airways close (from edema or swelling), they may start getting red (from hives and histamine release) etc. Stay with the patient. If recognized early may be able to have patient take some Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and/or Prednisone to ward off some of the disastrous reactions. ...Read more
Probably not: That is not necessarily a statement that would be supported by the literature. ...Read more
Epinephrine: Is the drug of choice to treat anaphylaxis, you need a prescription for it. ...Read more
Sever allergy attack: Anaphylaxis is a severe form of an allergy attack that may include hives and swelling throughout the skin, respiratory problems like asthma and cardiovascular problems like low blood pressure and shock. Treatment includes adrenaline, fluids, steroids, antihistamines and h2 blockers, . ...Read more
Immediate to late: Most often it is immediate to have an anaphylactic reaction sometimes it may take a few minutes. It all depends on how quickly the 'venom' or chemical mediators are released. The reaction itself could be mild or severe. ...Read more
Complex: The pathophysiology of anaphylaxis is complex. It involves the release of many biologically potent mediators from cells like mast cells and eosinophils. These in turn act on tissues like blood vessels causing dilation with a resultant drop in blood pressure and smooth muscles throughout the body such as in the bronchioles causing them to constrict. Multiple organs are affected. ...Read more
A condition in which a person cannot circulate enough blood (carrying oxygen and nutrients) to the vital organs in the body. If shock persists, various parts of the body will stop working, and the person will die. Causes of shock include injuries, excessive bleeding, heart failure, infections, chemical imbalances, ...Read more
