We examined the pattern of adrenaline administration in patients presenting with anaphylaxis. Forty-four percent required repeated adrenaline administration, among whom there had been greater cardiorespiratory compromise. Repeated administration was more frequent in males and older patients, and those triggered by insect sting or unknown cause; no other patient factors were identified. This study supports the provision of two adrenaline auto-injectors to all anaphylaxis patients.
