    Abstract

    The concept of anaphylaxis originates from the observations by the French physiologist Charles Richet in 1902 of the effects of actinotoxins on the blood pressure of dogs [1]. Anaphylactic shock is the classic example of the immediate type of hypersensitivity reaction; it may be defined as the failure of the peripheral circulation induced by an antigen-antibody reaction [2]. The circulatory collapse may be primary, if the circulatory reaction is the primary event, or secondary, if the circulatory collapse is the consequence of an initial respiratory insufficiency.
