Why is it important to know which allergies a patient has?
Allergies can cause reactions such as rashes or more serious reactions, e.g. shock. Its important to know before
giving a medication in order to check if patients have any allergies because patients may suffer irritations such as
rashes or more serious reactions such as shock. Allergies to anesthetics may cause serious reactions such as
breathing difficulties. It is important to be immediately aware of allergies because it could be life-threatening to
give patients medications which they are allergic to.
