Today in my First Aid class we had a great discussion on allergic reactions and use of epinephrine. A question came up about what to do when you’re 20 minutes or more from medical aid.

The American Heart Association has the following information.

First Aid comparison between the 2005 and the 2010 Guidelines

I’ll post more later when I have time, but those are some quick links.
