    Dr. Bob Gravani discusses the other symptoms that serve as signals that someone is about to go into Anaphylactic shock.

    Host: Are there other symptoms that serve as signals that someone is about to go into Anaphylactic shock?

    Bob Gravani: Well, usually after consuming a food a severely allergic person will develop swollen lips and when that occurs the person dining with that individual should look for one of two symptoms, either reduced blood pressure or difficulty breathing. If any one of those two symptoms occur medical attention should be summoned immediately because this person might be in a life threatening situation and be developing advance stages of Anaphylaxis. 1
