Description

This list contains dm+d entries for adrenaline auto-injectors, commonly know as pens, which are used by people when they experience an emergency allergic reaction.

Methodology

All dm+d codes from adrenaline pens from brands that are commonly available in the UK were included. They are

  • Epipen
  • Jext
  • Emerade

Additionally we have included preparations were the BNF codes begins 0304030C0 and the preparation appears to be a pen from its BNF name. We have excluded ampoules as we don't antipate the primary usage of these are for anaphylactic emergency.
