All about Allergies: Domenic Cincotta at DFTB18

SHARE VIA:

Children have become global gastronomic explorers and are constantly trying unusual foods. It is not these that are generally of concern to the healthcare provider but regular, everyday foods that are found in nearly every larder or store cupboard.

Whilst we would like to think that anaphylaxis is a rare event, children still present to the emergency department with signs and symptoms suggestive of anaphylaxis every year. Whether we notice them or act on them appropriately is another matter. In this talk, Domenic takes us through some of the data around food allergy and anaphylaxis.
