In brief: Epinephrine

Anaphylaxis is primarily treated with Epinephrine injection.
The allergist's office should be prepared for this rare risk and have various medications ready. It is also important not to test at the wrong time such as during an acute infection or asthma exacerbation.

In brief: We are prepared!

Every allergist's office will be manned by people who are experience with treating all levels of allergic reactions including the most severe anaphylactic reactions.
Epinephrine is always readily available and the ability to start an IV and give intravenous medications should also be onsite.
