Study in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice Finds the Rate of Anaphylaxis Doubled between 2005 and 2014
The article “Increasing Emergency Department Visits for Anaphylaxis, 2005-2014” in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice outlines a study conducted by researchers at the Mayo Clinic that found the rate of emergency department anaphylaxis visits doubled between 2005 and 2014. The researchers used a nationwide administrative claims database to look at emergency department data from the 10 year period. They found the rate of emergency department visits for anaphylaxis increased 101% in that time. Although other recent studies also suggest the frequency of anaphylaxis is increasing, it is unclear whether it is due to increased recognition, diagnosis or reporting rates.
