Instructional video on how to use an EpiPen®

Changes to instructions on EpiPen® administration 13 June 2017

The devices have not changed, just the instructions on the label, which now include:

  • Reduced injection time from 10 to 3 seconds – this is based on research confirming delivery of adrenaline through the 3 second delivery time.
  • Removal of the massage step after the injection – this has been found to reduce the risk of irritation at the injection site.

A new short video featuring Dr Andrew Rochford, explaining the changes
