Auvi-Q is a breakthrough in epinephrine auto-injector device design
that talks patients and caregivers step-by-step through the injection
process.

"Patient feedback was a critical component to the development
process for Auvi-Q," said Anne Whitaker, President, North America
Pharmaceuticals, Sanofi. "The availability of Auvi-Q represents an
important step forward in our continued innovation to meet the needs
of people at risk for anaphylaxis and their caregivers."
SANOFI AUVI-Q(TM)Up to six million Americans may be at risk for
anaphylaxis, although the precise incidence is unknown and likely
under-reported. While guidelines emphasize the importance of the life-
saving role of epinephrine, two large surveys  show that two-thirds of
patients and caregivers do not carry their epinephrine auto-injectors as
recommended, and nearly half worry that others will not know how to
use their or their child's epinephrine auto-injector correctly during an
emergency.

Multiple studies have found an association between delay in
epinephrine administration and death from anaphylaxis. Life-
threatening allergic reactions may occur as a result of exposure to
allergens including foods such as peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish,
dairy, eggs, soy and wheat; insect stings; latex and medication, among
other allergens and causes.

allergen which is why epinephrine should be administered immediately and patients
and caregivers should call 911 and seek medical help.
