EPI- Biue to the sky 3 Fire EDUCATION nold fo ring for on O secords r an ambu lane I FJST 2 Flick orange to the tigh dontbeanassharry aroacelukeskywalkernursenotes1 Fist Make a fist around the epi-pen don’t place your thumbfingers over either end2 Flick the blue cap off3 Fire Press down into the outer thigh the big muscle in there hold for 10 seconds before removing the orange cap will cover the needle Bare skin is best but the epi-pen will go through clothing Avoid pockets and seams - Ring an ambulance even if everything seems to be fine!Oh my godSo as someone who has to carry an epipen EVERYWHERE I am so happy to see that there’s an info post about themLike in the extreme case that I can’t inject myself somebody else would have to do it but nobody knows how to do it! Thank you this may just save my life some dayDon’t be wimpy about it either I know friends who are like “but idk if I could stab you with a needle!” Please stab me with the needle don’t be hesitant about itIn my case I can’t speak for all allergies an epi buys me 20 minutes of breathing to get to the hospital It is not a magic bullet it’s a few critical minutes to help get me where I need to go Meme
