Abstract Anaphylaxis reaction

Anaphylaxis is an acute severe, life-threatening, generalized or systemic hypersensitivity reactions
- Severe anaphylaxis : 1 - 3/1! people "#oneret-$autrin et al% &ct '()
- *eneralized +ypersensitivity/Anaphylaxis : ±'/1! total patient ",etut Suryana, '()
-he aetiology of Anaphylactic and anaphylactoid :
1. /rugs : antibiotic : penicilin most fre0uens, aspirin, 1SA2/
'. 3oods : most commonly : fish / sea food, lobster, eggs, co4 mil5, nuts.
3. $enoms : heminoptera insects

7. &thers : blood products, physical factors " cold 8 exercise 9 induced )
- -ype 2 reaction "2g: mediated)
- Anaphylactoid reaction "Non IgE mediated) : complement activation, physical factors,
substance for +istamine release, idiopathic, arachidonic acid modulation

Laboratory Findings
Aaboratory test are seldom necessary or helpful initially, although certain test may be used later to
assess and monitor treatment and to detect complications.

%ethods of s/in testing 0 ?atch test, Scratch test, ?ric5 test, 2ntradermal test

- /iagnostic approach for the immediate hypersensitivity reaction.
- /etermining 2g: antibodies to specific antigens
- S?- are done before any intradermal testing

- 2nterpretation base on Cheal and 3lare / C3 reaction.
- ,ndications for !P'
- An allergic patient / suspected allergy
- When SPT should be done :
- S08 should 1e underta9en during periods of free symptoms
- 8o prevent worsening of the clinical status
- Preparations of SPT :
- :ashout of any medication include 5

- antidepressants% codeine% long+term oral steroid (a &+wee9 washout'
- A &+ wee9 course of daily glucocorticosteroids was reported to have no effect on immediate

- -igh dose allergy immunotherapy results in a reduction in s9in test reaction.
- Emergency ;it
- Procedure of !P'
- S?- 4as performed on volar region of antebrachium
- ;leanse the s5in 4ith K > ethyl alcohol and allo4 it to dry by evaporation
- Aseptically place a drop of a standardized allergen "' cm apart, to prevent coalescence of
positive results)
- -he vaccinostyl / a sterile needle no. '7 should not be inserted so deep "1mm) at about a
!(° angle into the superficial s5in
- About ' minutes, observe the tes sites for erythema and 4heal formation "C3 reaction)

-he diseases pathomechanisms
Specific allergic triggers
Sensitivity grading
- Grading and interpretation 0 è based on the diameter C3
- Although many grading systems, consistency and familiarity 4ith the system are most
- 1egative B no C3 formation / diameter @ 3 mm
- L1 B C3 formation 4ith diemeter ≥ 3 mm
- L' B C3 formation 4ith diemeter !-7 mm
- L3 B C3 formation 4ith diemeter M 7 mm
A negative control : a test using diluent solution "coca solution)
A positive control : a test using .1> histamine solution
Control test could be evaluate 0 technic, non spesific, allergen, false negative / false positive
- False negative : technic test, lo4 allergen, preparation not optimal "discontinue of the drugs)
- False positivie : technic test, deviation from physiologic p+ / osmolaritas of the allergen,
presence of A#C, irritans
