Anaphylaxis in the New Millennium

Anaphylaxis continues to challenge patients and healthcare providers because of the variety of ways it can manifest. This course - a recording of a plenary session presented at the AAAAI 2012 Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL - reviews the immunologic mechanisms of anaphylaxis, including non-IgE mediated anaphylaxis; reasons the heart is an important target in the diagnosis and management of anaphylaxis; and summarizes the assessment and management guidelines for anaphylaxis from the World Allergy Organization.

The Anaphylaxis Identification and Management (AIM) initiative is funded through an educational grant from sanofi-aventis, U.S.
