Simplified EpiPen instructions are a good thing

EpiPens with 3 second instruction label

I read last night about new instructions for administering the EpiPen and I have to say how exciting it is to see simplified instructions.

To be able to tell other people all they need to do is push the pen into the thigh and hold it there for 3 seconds is so much easier and simpler than they hold the person down administer the EpiPen keep it in 10 full seconds then rub for another 10 seconds. It's just great to know that the simpler instructions will be easier to remember, easier to understand, easier to implement should someone ever need to and are still just as effective.

I would imagine these simplified instructions are also easier should you need to self administer an EpiPen. When in an emergency situation if you have to self administer and think about holding a pen in for the full 10 seconds then rubbing your thigh while you're struggling to breathe that must have been daunting but with these new instructions should someone ever unfortunately have to self administer adrenaline then they going to feel more confident that they can help themselves.

The Trainer EpiPen still list 10 seconds, but having one on hand to practice regularly is in-valuable
