New guideline for Anapen administration

A quick one today. The TGA (Therapeutic Goods and Administration) has released a change to the time of the Anapen.

The guideline is now to ‘hold for 3 seconds’ instead of the previous 10 seconds. This brings it in line with the guideline for the Epipen.

This is regardless of the dosage of the Anapen, 150, 300 or 500mcg.
