Auvi-Q the Talking EpiPen
Posted on May 15 2013
Have you ever been in a situation where you needed to use an EpiPen, but you weren’t sure how or where to use it? Well, rest assured that this will no longer happen because modern technology has made a breakthrough in the creation of EpiPens. Auvi-Q is the first and only epinephrine auto-injector for severe allergic reactions, and believe it or not, it talks you through the injection process, step by step.
The Auvi-Q, an epinephrine injection, is used to treat life threatening allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) for those who have a history of these types of reactions. It is made for self injection, or caregiver injection, immediately at the time of the reaction. It is small enough to fit in your pocket, purse or backpack, for easy traveling wherever you need to be. This neat little device talks to the user, giving them step-by-step instructions for the injection process. Auvi-Q is extremely user friendly and safe and can be used for both parents and kids, as it comes in 2 different doses.
The fact that the Auvi-Q talks to the user is the coolest part about this new EpiPen. This is so great because kids can be forgetful and if an allergic reaction happens after not happening for a long time, they may forget how to administer the injection. If a class trip is going to the zoo and one of the students gets stung by a bee and their chaperone has never used an EpiPen before, the Auvi-Q is perfect for the situation.
The second you pick up the Auvi-Q it will ask if you are ready for use and explains exactly what to do starting from how to expose the needle, where to inject and what to do after. Auvi-Q will count down for you to let you know when it is safe to remove it from the treatment area. Once the treatment is complete the needle retracts itself so you don’t have to worry about extra pricks. How neat is that!?
