    Question 5 in the quiz, you list IV epi as the correct response as opposed to IM epi. You are in fact making the assumption that the patient has an IV or can in fact have an IV easily placed which sometimes is inaccurate assumption. Why is the better response not to give IM epi while an IV is being established? In this case, despite the poor perfusion, some epi is being circulated while the IV is being established.

    Thanks for considering my thoughts

      Great point Calvin about IV access issues. Indeed there is a time-sensitive element to giving epi for anaphylactic shock, but in this case, the patient had just received a platelet transfusion, which requires an IV. So presumably that IV was still available for epi administration.
