Australia Tennis Match Interrupted by Anaphylaxis

 

Tennis fans interrupted the Australian Open to save a woman from a severe allergic reaction.

Someone in the crowd tossed epinephrine – the first treatment used for anaphylaxis, or a severe allergic reaction – from an upper deck to rush it to her aid.




In the U.S., laws to allow access to stock epinephrine in public places, like sports stadiums, are beginning to take shape. New Jersey passed such a law earlier this month.

Is your state considering a similar law? Check and take action by sending a message to your state representatives today!
