Of course I couldn’t sit still with this Auvi-Q trainer in my hot little hand. Side bar: the new updated Auvi-Q website has all sorts of interesting features on it! So, I decided to see if any of my Epi Pen® carriers would hold the new Auvi-Q epinephrine auto-injector? For the most part, every carrier worked just fine with one exceptions. Again, I am thrilled that we will all have choices, as I mentioned in my previous post about the newest epinephrine auto-injector to hit the market, Inspiring: We Met the New Auvi-Q,
The more we fiddle with the trainer, the more my family is realizing that my son is counting the hours until he can get his hands on the Auvi-Q and my daughter and father both like the Epi Pen®. At age nine, change is not welcome and I will honor her comfort zone. Nevertheless, we are all excited for all the good things choices will bring!
Here are the results of my epinephrine auto-injectors…
it did not fit into the single case. Although, it looks like the asthma pouches that Activeaide offers might work?!?
All in all, I think most of my Epi Pen® carriers will still be able to accommodate the Auvi-Q epinephrine auto-injectors. My daughter is beginning to use a purse, so she will most likely continue using the Red Emergency Medicine Bag sold by FARE and my son carries his epinephrine auto-injectors in a pencil pouch in his binder or some of the various carriers from above (okay, not the blue camo–that belongs to my daughter).
Again, I’m thrilled for choices! Yay to Auvi-Q and Epi Pen® for providing us with life saving medicine for anaphlyaxis!
