Allergies and Therapy

by

Knowing my patients’ allergies will be a very important aspect of therapy. There are many situations in which allergies could affect the way therapy is conducted. There may be a time during therapy when I where latex gloves, but a patient could be allergic to latex. Some people are also deathly allergic to bees, in which case we would not be able to allow exposure to bees. It is also important that I know what to do if one of my patients starts experiencing anaphylaxis, either from something in session or something they ate or came in contact with beforehand. I actually have experience and training with anaphylaxis and injecting EpiPens, because I have an extreme allergy to shellfish.
