Management of Anaphylaxis in an Austere or Operational Environment

Winter 2014

Ellis BC, Brown SG. 14(4). 1 - 5. (Case Reports)


We present a case report of a Special Operations Soldier who developed anaphylaxis as a consequence of a bee sting, resulting in compromise of the operation. We review the current literature as it relates to the pathophysiology of the disease process, its diagnosis, and its management. An evidence-based field treatment algorithm is suggested.
