Write-up: Pt received vaccine at 1210. At 1220 said her throat was feeling a little scratchy. She stated that it just felt like she "needed to clear her throat". NP was called to assist, evaluated and epinephrine 0.3ml IM was given. Benadryl 50mg and Zantac 40 mg was also given po. Pt was monitored, 9-1-1 was called and arrived in 10 minutes. Pt was sitting up, stating that it just "feels like my throat is thick". After EMS arrived and assessed pt, she began to ease her anxiety and stated she was feeling less tightness and felt better. Pt was observed, VSS. She denied going to the hospital stating she was feeling better so called for a ride home. EMS left and within 10 minutes she began to feel a tightening sensation in her upper chest, not in her throat this time. She said she felt the tightness again and the back of her throat was scratchy. NP evaluated, Epi 0.3ml IM was given again and 9-1-1 was called again. Upon arrival her vitals were stable, although tachycardic running 100-120 after the epi, but her breathing was not labored or difficult. EMS loaded pt and took to hospital for evaluation where she was monitored, received IV steroids for edema in the back of throat and uvula.
