BET 3: Do doctors know how to use adrenaline autoinjectors correctly?


A short-cut review was carried out to establish whether doctors know how to use autoinjectors (for anaphylaxis). Three hundred and twenty-four papers were found of which five presented the best evidence to answer the clinical question. The author, date and country of publication, patient group studied, study type, relevant outcomes, results and study weaknesses of these best papers are shown in table 3. The clinical bottom line is that the majority of doctors studied are unable to use autoinjectors correctly and may therefore be unable to teach patients or parents effectively.
