Emerade is an emergency medicine for anaphylaxis - a serious allergic reaction. It is injected intramuscularly into the outer thigh at the top of the leg.
The injector contains adrenaline (epinephrine) which counteract the symptoms of anaphylaxis. Adrenaline is the first line treatment for Anaphylaxis.
In an emergency scenario where a person's life if in danger, adrenaline injections are the first line of treatment for anaphylaxis, due to the ability to be able to quickly and safely administer the required dose of adrenaline.
Emerade can be used through clothes.
Anaphylaxis is an acute and life-threatening reaction to an antigen. Common anaphylactic triggers include seafood, nuts, sesame, dairy products, eggs, insect bites or stings, rubbers or plastics, penicillin and other medicines.
When someone who is sensitive to a particular trigger, they can experience symptoms such as:
When someone experiences anaphylaxis, their blood vessels dilate, resulting in a dramatic drop in blood pressure. The heart rate becomes laboured and the soft muscles which surround the airways constrict, making it difficult to breathe.
Histamines, the chemicals which cells release in response to an allergic reaction, cause inflammation across the body.
Emerade auto-injectors administer a dose of adrenaline to counteract the symptoms of anaphylaxis.
Adrenaline constricts blood vessels to increase blood pressure, while also increasing the heart rate to reverse the dramatic drop in blood pressure a person experiences during anaphylaxis.
It also prevents histamines from being released. These are produced by cells within the body to combat the allergen when present, however, they can also cause a host of other complications, such as inflammation.
This inflammation can cause the airways to become constricted, restricting the ability to breathe, or affect the skin causing a rash. By blocking the release of histamines, the adrenaline can aid in breathing and prevent further reactions from occurring.
Emerade should only be used in a medical emergency.
Your Emerade pen should be carried with you at all times.
Your doctor should have demonstrated how to use your auto-injector. If you forget, or someone else has to administer the dose of adrenaline in an emergency, the steps on how to use Emerade are printed on the side of the pen.
Family members and carers should also be instructed on how to correctly use Emerade if you are not able to.
To use Emerade:
Some liquid remains in the auto-injector, however, Emerade auto-injectors are not reusable.
Do not inject Emerade into the buttocks. This can increase the risk of accidentally injecting adrenaline into the vein.
After administering the adrenaline, you need to call an ambulance and state "anaphylaxis" as the emergency.
If no response or improvement is seen from the initial dose of adrenaline, you can administer another dose between 5 and 15 minutes after the original dose.
You should lie down while waiting for the ambulance. This will help to keep your blood pressure stable and mitigate the risk of injury from fainting. If you are finding it hard to breathe, raise your shoulders slightly.
If unconscious, the body should be placed in the recovery position until paramedics arrive.
All medicines have the potential of causing side effects, though not everybody experiences them. Understanding and being vigilant of side effects your medicine could cause is important to your health.
The following side effects have been observed in people who use adrenaline. But the frequency of these side effects cannot be determined.
If you experience any side effects caused by this medicine, you should report them to your doctor or pharmacist. You can also report side effects online using the Yellow Card Scheme.
It's important to inform our prescribers of any other medicines you are taking. This is especially important if you are taking:
Store Emerade below 25 °C, but do not freeze (0°).
Do not use this medicine after the expiry date. The expiry date refers to the last day of that month. Discard and replace Emerade after this date.
Check the solution regularly through the viewing window on the side. The solutions should be clear and colourless. If the solution has turned yellow or brown, or contains precipitate, discard and replace your Emerade.
If you drop your auto-injector, inspect it for damage or leakage. If the pen is damaged or leaking, discard and replace it as soon as possible.
Always keep your medicine out of the sight and reach of children.
More information about Emerade can be found in the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine. We strongly urge you to read the enclosed leaflet before you use Emerade.
If you accidentally inject your hand or feet with adrenaline, seek immediate emergency medical attention.
Accidental injection of adrenaline can cause a sharp rise in blood pressure, which will need to be treated at a hospital.
If you are pregnant, think you may be pregnant, or intend on becoming pregnant, speak to your doctor for advice on using Emerade.
The effects of using adrenaline while pregnant have not been established, however, it is recommended not to avoid using Emerade in an emergency situation.
Yes, you can breastfeed after using Emerade.
Adrenaline is unlikely to have an effect on your ability to drive or operate machinery.
But your ability to drive or operate machinery may be affected by a severe allergic reaction. If you are affected by a serious allergic reaction, do not drive or operate machinery until you feel safe to do so.
