Anaphylaxis (Anaphylactic shock), caused by a severe allergic reaction

Anaphylaxis (Anaphylactic shock), caused by a severe allergic reaction – http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000844.htm

Representative questions that can be answered with this resource:

  • What are the causes of Anaphylaxis?
  • What are symptoms of Anaphylaxis?
  • What are three things you should NEVER do for someone experiencing Anaphylaxis?

Description:

This is the shock that your peanut and bee allergic characters get to experience. Like the other MedlinePlus Encyclopedia articles here, it is structured like the article on cardiogenic shock described elsewhere. The symptoms section lists some items I wasn’t expecting like diarrhea and vomiting.
