This is a survival issue that I have not seen discussed on this forum and should be of grave concern. I have been intensively researching this issue looking for ways to deal with this. Anaphylactic Shock can occur at anytime with any person, with almost any myriad of causes, this is of grave concern to me and others, I know many people that carry and epipen. I used to be a hunting guide and the hunters were instructed to carry and epipen for this if they knew that they were susceptible... I am in the mountains, many times 16 miles (usually uphill) from the nearest ANYTHING. I would like to know if you can work a person in shock out of this if you open (forcefully) the airways and provide CPR in the case of heart failure? Also: I do have Benadryl and Dramamine in my first aid kit (not always there) will this help in true anaphylactic shock? With additional care? I am going to raise these concerns with my doctor and see if he will prescribe an epipen for such cases - but I don't always have these things with me. Will an epinephrine inhaler help?
