Sanofi, the French pharmaceutical firm, announced today that their Auvi-Q voice guided epinephrine auto-injector is now available from retail pharmacies in the US with a prescription.
Unlike other auto-injectors, the Auvi-Q provides voice prompts when activated, taking the administrator step-by-step through the process. The device is well suited for emergency situations when a person suffering the symptoms of anaphylaxis is too young or otherwise unable to self administer and a novice must step in to administer.
Here is a video provided by Sanofi demonstrating the Auvi-Q’s use:
The Auvi-Q may be especially well suited for classroom, summer camp, scouting, and sports league settings where children with food allergies may come in contact with the allergens that cause anaphylaxis.
