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

  • 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.

Codelists are developed by a broad community of users for individual study purposes, which may or may not meet the needs of other studies. They should not be thought of as universal definitions of a particular condition.

We don't offer any guarantees about what they do or don't identify. Users should carefully check that any codelist meets their needs, and seek clinical input where appropriate.
