Written Case Study

You are a Registered Nurse working in a rural hospital when a young farmer Mr. James Sonnet arrives. He has driven himself to the hospital after being stung by a bee in a nearby paddock. He complains of difficulty breathing and a tingling feeling on his face. You immediately notice that there is swelling in his lips and tongue and that he is breathing with difficulty- he has a wheeze, and he is only able to say one word at a time. The resident doctor arrives and orders 0.5mg of Adrenaline IM. Mr. James Sonnet will be discharged with an EpiPen (Adrenaline 300mcg/ 0.3mls).
