Procedure Kit/Trays, Emergency, Anaphylactic

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (i.e., either custom or standard kits) needed for initial emergency treatment of a patient in a case of anaphylactic reaction (i.e., a life-threatening type of allergic reaction). Items in these kits usually include a syringe, a needle, cotton/gauze, and a variety of specific medications that are generally used to treat anaphylactic crisis (e.g., epinephrine and antihistamines). The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Anaphylactic emergency procedure kits and trays are intended for administering medication to a person suffering from an anaphylactic reaction to an allergen. Dedicated kits for treatment of specific allergies and/or patients are also available. Anaphylactic kits are used in the field, at home, in emergency rooms, and in other healthcare facilities.
