Davis Company.Response #2CurstinaAnaphylaxis can present differently depending on one’s age group or gender. For example, females have a tendency to have more sensitivity reactions to aspirin, contrast, latex, and muscle relaxers (Hsieh, 2013). While males have more reactions to insect venoms (Hsieh, 2013). Children have a higher occurrence of anaphylaxis because of food allergies Hsieh, 2013). ReferenceHsieh, F. (2013). Disease Management: Anaphylaxis. Cleveland Clinic. Retrieved from xis/Curstina Fitzpatrick-Tabb Anaphylaxis is a systemic type 1 Hypersensitivity reaction that occurs in a sensitized individual. Theses individual can be sensitized foods, drug latex, or venoms. Type I hypersensitivity reaction is mediated by antigen-specific IgE and the product of tissue mast cells,(Huether & McCance2017). The treatment of anaphylaxis shock can vary from patient to patient depending on their symptoms. However, once the patient had a known history of sensitivity all precaution and emergency care should be considered when taking care of the patient. The clinicalmanifestation of type I reaction is attributable mostly to the biologic effect of histamine. The tissues most commonly affected by type I hypersensitivity response contain large numbers of mast cells and are sensitive to the consequences of histamine release from them. The tissues are found in the gastrointestinal tract, the skin, and the respiratory tract, (Huether & McCance 2017).The inflammation trigger by the type I hypersensitivity causes edema in the tissue the stomach, lung, and skin. The provide and huge immune and inflammatory response, including vasodilationand increased vascular permeability resulting in the peripheral pooling and tissue edema,
WEEKLY DISCUSSIONS9(Huether & McCance 2017). Anaphylaxis can happen suddenly, and the outcome can be deadly if it not treated aggressively. The patients who need emergency care versus treating as an outpatient is very crucial for the life or patients. Emergency care versus treating as an outpatient factorsThe factors can play a role on how we should treat patients for anaphylaxis shock can be based on the age of the patient. The risk factors for anaphylaxis vary and should be taken into account when seeing affected patients. In younger patient’s peanuts allergy is a risk for severe, reaction, (Worm, Babina, & Hompes, 2012). Children are further divided into smaller children versus adolescence. The younger children are more at risk for food-related anaphylaxis are milk, hen’s egg protein and wheat. The adults are more allergens are in wheats celery and seafood.
