Patients With Hypersensitivity

Concepts of Care for Patients With Hypersensitivity (Allergy) and Autoimmunity
The nurse is talking with Ms. Artson, a 47-year-old woman who has recently had an anaphylaxis episode triggered by strawberries, about how to prevent future problems.

Question 1 What should the nurse tell Ms. Artson about how to prevent a future anaphylaxis episode?

Question 2 Two weeks later, the nurse receives a phone call from Ms. Artson who states, “I just rubbed against a strawberry plant at the farmer’s market. What should I do?” How should the nurse respond to Ms. Artson? What interprofessional collaboration is warranted in this situation?

Question 3 The patient averts an anaphylaxis crisis by using the emergency kit. The EMS team arrives and provides medical support (oxygenation) as needed while in transport to the ED. The patient recovers quickly, and the nurse prepares to discharge the patient to home. What discharge instructions, specific to treatment of acute anaphylaxis, should the nurse reinforce with the patient?
