‘Anaphylaxis’ is an application designed for people with severe allergies (e.g. food, drugs, and insects’ stings) that may potentially trigger anaphylaxis, as well as people whose family members, friends or co-workers are at risk of anaphylaxis. The application features a personalised anaphylaxis management plan including user specific list of allergens, list of medications used (including ‘pen’), emergency procedures in case of anaphylactic reaction (including detailed instructions with video and voiceover on how to inject epinephrine using ‘pen’ carried by the patient) and emergency contacts. It also allows users to set up reminders (e.g. to check ‘pen’s’ expiration date or take
their ‘pen’ with them every morning) and locate nearest hospital, A&E and pharmacy.
The application provides a ready, accessible source of information about emergency procedures to be followed by the person affected, or those who accompany them (parents, siblings, and friends). It gives people at risk of anaphylaxis a constant access to crucial information about anaphylaxis management and list of potentially lifesaving procedures.
