Despite the fact that several worldwide recommendations have been published in the previous decade, anaphylaxis remains underdiagnosed, undernotified, and undertreated. Anaphylactic responses in adults and children are commonly overlooked in emergency rooms, resulting in underutilization of epinephrine and an increased risk of mortality. A few studies have recently been published that demonstrate that educational interventions for both physicians and other healthcare personnel enhance anaphylaxis diagnosis and management. Furthermore, the revised International Categorization of Diseases, 11th edition enhanced anaphylaxis classification, making notification easier.

Anaphylaxis is a potentially fatal hypersensitivity reaction observed more commonly by emergency physicians and nurses than by allergists or immunologists. Education appears to be the most effective method for improving management of this severe disease.
