• Epinephrine

     

    Epineprine admintration is now considerd to be part of Azle ISD's emergency health treatment if anphylaxis is suspected.

    Anaphylaxis  is a potentially severe or life-threatening allergic reaction that can occur very quickly, as fast as within a couple of minutes of exposre to an allergen.

    It can be triggered by an allergy to a particular food (peanuts or shellfish , for example), biting or stinging insects, medication, latex or a variety of other allergic triggers.

    Azle ISD campuses will now have the medication epineprine on each campus to administer in case of a life-threatening anayphylactic emergency during the time students are in the building. Emergency services will be called if the medication is administered , however this allows a faster initial response by trained staff.
