Remember 2 Things: Anaphylaxis and lower airway assessment

Anaphylaxis is a difficult patient presentation. Review two important assessments for lower airway compromise caused by an allergic reaction. Auscultate the patient's lungs for wheezes, starting in the upper lung lobes and listening downward. Also make sure you can distinguish absent lung sounds from clear lung sounds. Finally, remember to listen to lots and lots of lung sounds so you can learn to distinguish normal from abnormal.
