(no contact inhibition)
- A severe, widespread acute hypersensitivity that occurs when an allergen is introduced to the bloodstream of an allergic individual. characterized by broncho-constriction, labored breathing, widespread vasodilation, circulatory shock, and sometimes sudden death. antihistamines are inadequate to counter this type of hypersensitivity, but epinephrine relieves the symptoms by dilating the bronchioles, increasing cardiac output, and restoring blood pressure.
- decreased immunity & blood producing functions, altered GI structure and function, motor and sensory deficits, decreased respiratory function
- an over-reaction against foreign antigens 4 types
1. rapid hypersensitivity (humoral)
2. cytotoxic/cytolytic reactions (humoral)
3. immune-complex reactions (humoral)
