b. This may have been left over from the EMT instructions.
c. Change this note to add the word “autoinjector” so that it reads “Anterolateral thigh is the preferred IM administration site for 1:1000 epi autoinjector. Other sites may be used if preferred site would cause unneeded delay. Absorption is fastest with IM injection in the thigh.”
