The documents listed below are designed to be used as a crisis management package in the event of an acute perioperative anaphylaxis. We recommend all members of your department are aware of their content and how to use each card or section. Please take the time to read the introduction and each of the cards carefully. Optimum use will occur when clinicians are well prepared and have used the resource to practise crisis management prior to an event.
