Life Threatening Anaphylaxis and the AMAX4 algorithm with Ben Mckenzie Pre-Hospital Care Podcast

    • Education

In this conversation, we speak with Australian emergency physician Dr. Ben Mckenzie. Ben has developed the AMAx4 algorithm as a streamlined approach to recognising and treating anaphylaxis after the tragic death of his 15-year-old son Max Mckenzie. Ben has helped standardise best practices for this life-threatening emergency. Promptly following the AMAx4 steps is vital for patient survival in the initial minutes of anaphylaxis until emergency medical services arrive.

Anaphylaxis is a severe, potentially fatal allergic reaction that requires prompt adrenaline to optimise survival outcomes. AMAx4 emphasises key steps that should be taken as soon as anaphylaxis is identified. The simplified, structured sequence helps reduce treatment delays, improves outcomes, and has been endorsed by major allergy organisations as an evidence-based protocol.



*** Please note, that you should adhere to local guidelines and protocols and remain compliant to these when practising pre-hospital care. Only practice the above algorithm with the support of your institution.'
