Talking Epi Pen
crunk05177 posted:
Have you guys heard of the new epi pen that came out? My sister told me a rep came into the office she works for and it apparently speaks to help you through the process of administering it. Google it and tell me what you guys think. I can't open the websites here at work to cut and paste the info.
mrswhitecastle responded:
I have read about it, and it sounds kind of neat. I would personally rather have one for myself that doesn't talk if it is cheaper since I feel fairly confident on how to administer.

I do see some benefits of it, but a risk as you have with anything. I think as long as you still stay diligent about training people how to use the Epi, it can only benefit. I think about the future, too, when Emily carries it herself. If she were unable to administer, it may help a stranger to administer for her. However, if you rely solely on the talking Epi (and don't practice or train anyone), then I see it could being a problem.

I agree with you 100%. I think it would work best for self carrying people. However, my sister was telling me that the needle itself is supposed to be better and less painful or something. I honestly didn't do much research but I think it is a pretty cool idea.
