Contrast Chronicles Part II: IV Contrast Allergy
This episode is part 2 in our contrast chronicles and tackles the mythical beast of iodine, shellfish, and contrast allergy. Join us as we explore the evidence behind contrast allergy, contrast mediated anaphylaxis and anaphylactoid reactions. We take a retro look back to the original papers from the 70’s and 80’s all the way through the present day. On this deep dive, we will also explore the efficacy of pretreatment for these reactions and the utility of this strategy in the Emergent setting.
