Abstract

Although Anaphylaxis is a well-recognized life threatening medical condition, yet it seems the awareness about its causative agent, diagnosis and its immediate treatment is lacking amongst medical professionals and supporting staff in medical setup. The aim of the present survey is to evaluate the existing knowledge about diagnosis of anaphylaxis and its emergency treatment in medical healthcare professionals and eventually spread awareness about it.
