Kids, School and Auvi-Q

 If your child suffers from anaphylaxis, or severe allergic reactions, it can cause anxiety when it comes to sending them to school. Have some peace of mind by making sure your child is ready for every possible allergic reaction that may arise with Auvi-Q. The Auvi-Q epinephrine auto-injector is a talking epinephrine auto-injector that will audibly walk the user through the injection process step by step. Make sure your child is familiar and comfortable with using Auvi-Q before school starts, and be sure they always have it in their pocket, backpack and/or the nurse’s office.

 

Contact your child’s school to find out their policy on epinephrine injections. Make sure the school is well aware of your child’s allergies. Auvi-Q makes a patch that will have your child’s name, what they are allergic to, emergency contact information, the doctor’s number and where your child keeps their Auvi-Q epinephrine auto-injector. You can print these cards right off of their website to give to teachers, the nurse and cafeteria workers. Be sure to have an up-to-date action plan in place with your child’s school in the event of an emergency. Many schools have their own forms, but if one is not provided there is one available on the Auvi-Q website that you can fill out with your healthcare provider to give to the school.

 

It is important for your child to know and to be able to describe their symptoms. Encourage your child to discuss their symptoms, using their own words. Explain to them that they won’t be whining or complaining, but that they could be saving themselves from a scary medical emergency. Here are some ideas on what your child might say when they are experiencing symptoms:
