Epinephrine Nose Spray?!!?

Stop The Presses!

I've just heard that there's an Intranasal form of Epinephrine expected to enter clinical trials in 2014.  There's (obviously) not much known yet, but a preliminary study showed that it was rapidly and readily absorbed and was comparable to intramuscular injections of Epinephrine!

How many lives might be saved!?

If caregivers didn't hesitate over administering an Epi Pen because of the needle - how many tragic losses would be prevented?

I am so, so excited to see where this goes!
